Fun Fact Friday

Cat Whiskers

1.Cat's whiskers measure an opening. Because the whiskers on a cat's muzzle are approximately equal to his/her body width, they help determine how wide an opening is.

2.Cats also have whiskers above the eyes, on their chin, and on the back of the cats front legs just above the paw, called carpal whiskers.

3.Carpal whiskers help them when hunting by helping to determine movement of prey captured in their paws.

4.A cat's whiskers are so sensitive they can detect changes in air currents.

5.The area around a cats whiskers have a generous supply of nerves and blood. This makes them very sensitive and should never be pulled on or trimmed.

Fun Fact Friday!

The Jacobson鈥檚 organ

Cats are equipped with a special organ called the Jacobson鈥檚 organ or vomeronasal organ. This organ is located in the roof of their mouth and contains ducts that lead to their mouth and nose. The Jacobson鈥檚 organ is essentially a scent analyzer. Its primary use is for analyzing pheromones (scent chemicals), especially the ones found in urine. Cats can use this organ whenever they come across a scent they feel requires more in-depth analysis, but is mostly used in intact males reacting to the pheromones in urine of female cats in heat. Scents are collected in the mouth where the cat can then use their tongue to flick it up to the Jacobson鈥檚 organ. When a cat is using the Jacobson鈥檚 organ their facial expressions are similar to a grimace. The upper lip curls and mouth is left partially open. The Jacobson鈥檚 organ is also found in many animals, including snakes, lizards, mice, rats, elephants, cattle, dogs, goats, pigs, giraffes, and bears.
