Cats Can Do Anything! Yes ANYTHING!

Why Are Cats So Flexible?

Cats have the same basic skeleton and internal organs as human beings and other meat-eating mammals. The skeleton of a cat has about 250 bones. The exact number of bones varies, depending on the length of the cats tail. The skeleton serves as a framework that supports and protects the tissues and organs of a cats body. Most of the muscles attached to the skeleton are long, thin, and flexible. They enable a cat to move with great ease and speed. Cats can run about 30 miles (48 kilometers) per hour.

The arrangement of the bones and the joints that connect them permits a cat to perform a variety of movements. Unlike many animals, a cat walks by moving the front and rear legs on one side of its body at the same time, and then the legs on the other side. As a result, a cat seems to glide. Its hip joint enables a cat to leap easily. Other special joints allow a cat to turn its head to reach most parts of its body.

Cats are so flexible because of their high number of vertebrae, or individual spinal bone disks. Including their tails, cats have up to 53 vertebrae. By comparison, a human spine contains 33 vertebrae. While all animals' vertebrae has cushioning between the individual disks, a cat’s spine has more elastic cushioning than most mammals. This allows them to be able to twist themselves more easily, at angles of as much as 180 degrees. Cats also have tiny collarbones, which gives them the ability to flatten themselves to fit through small openings. When cats fall from tall heights, their flexibility is what generally keeps them from breaking any bones, because they are able to twist and reposition themselves mid-fall to land on their feet.

More about cats:

    Cats can jump as much as nine times their height from sitting down.

    Kittens as young as seven weeks know how to manipulate their bodies to fall from tall heights without injuring themselves.

    Cats have a wide range of vocal sounds — an estimated 100 of them. By comparison, dogs can make about 10 vocal sounds.

Cats No Dogs

What Are Things Cats Do When They Are Angry?

When your cat is angry, look out. If you don't, you might just get slapped with a tail or witness your other pet get spit at and pounced on. Kitties get angry and agitated for lots of reasons, from a lack of petting to an intruder in the house.

Tail Smacking:

When your feline becomes agitated, she'll often sit or lie on the ground and beat her tail on the floor or your furniture. She's essentially telling you that something has pushed her buttons and she's going through a little temper tantrum. Her tail smacking is much different than a happy dog wagging his tail. She'll often lift her tail entirely off the ground and smack it against something, or just lift the tip. If she's on all fours, she'll swing it deliberately.

Hissing and Screeching:

If your ears have been abused by a sudden hissing or screeching coming from the mouth of your kitty, she's probably very upset about something or someone. Screeching is completely different than a loud meow. It's usually more drawn out and violent sounding. Your cat will probably only hiss or screech when she's extremely upset with something or if she's in pain. The angry sounds are often a precursor to a cat fight. Some felines also let out a low guttural growl.

Spitting, Physical Appearance and Attacking:

If your kitty gets really worked up, she might spit or launch a full attack at whatever is bothering her. Like hissing and screeching, these behaviors typically won't occur if she's angry because it's not yet feeding time or because you didn't pet her. Something -- usually another animal or person -- usually has to provoke her. You'll often see physical signs that your fierce little girl is ready to leap onto something and attack it. She'll puff her entire body up, especially her tail, and arch her back end so she looks bigger. She might even walk sideways. Her ears will be erect, and she'll stare down whatever it is that set her off.

Reasons and Solutions:

Late feedings, a splash of water and a lack of attention commonly result in a bit of tail whipping from your feline. The behavior isn't serious, and she'll get over whatever bothered her in no time. Hissing, screeching, spitting and an aggressive appearance are more serious. Bringing another animal into the house can cause this behavior, as can the smell of strange animals on your clothes, strangers in your house and the appearance of animals outside. Always introduce new animals slowly, by keeping the resident cat and new animal separate for at least two to three days, then feeding them both treats when they see one another for the first time. If your cat is acting out at other people, smells or animals outside, distract her by making a sudden noise or shuffle her into another room. If a cat fight breaks out, a quick squirt of water will usually do the trick to separate the two.
