What you don’t know about cats

Siamese cats, those with different colors at the ends of their bodies, are born with only one color. However, it is as time goes on that the extremes become darker. This is due to the temperature difference in your body. The extremes, with a higher temperature, activate the production of melanin, the pigment that gives us color. As a result, these areas will be darker.

Cats have five toes on their front paws and four on their hind paws.

The area of the cat ‘s body with the most muscles is the ears. Up to 32 muscles make it up. It is not for nothing that the ears localize sounds perfectly. Therefore, it is best to avoid loud noises, which can damage his ears and frighten him.
