Five fun cat facts for all our feline loving friends:
- Cats can drink salt water! It's true. A cat's liver is super efficient and can filter the excess salt.
- In 2015 a Russian cat named Barsik ran for mayor, polling ahead of many of his Human co-runners. Barsik also attempted to become Russia's president in 2018. We like a cat with ambition.
- Some cats appear to have thumbs. The cool looking paws are shaped by additional toes. It's a thumbs up from us!
- The richest cat in history is a British mog called Blackie who inherited a cool 15 million pounds (GBP).
- A group of cats is referred to as a "Clowder".
Here are five famous children's books featuring cats:
- Mog the Forgetful Cat
- Cat in the Hat
- The Tale of Tom Kitten
- Tabby McTat
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (The Cheshire Cat)
