Fun Facts About Our Furry Friends

Sometimes we wonder about our pets and simply are curious. Here are some quick facts about cats and dogs easily researched online from a variety of sources:

  • Dogs sleep 12-14 hours a day and lounge for 6-8 more
  • Cats spend almost half their time grooming themselves
  • Dogs’ sweat glands are in their paws
  • Dogs mark territory with the glands in their paws
  • Housecats can run up to 30mph over short distances
  • A litter of kittens can also be called a “kindle” of kittens
  • Dogs poop between one and five times a day
  • Cats typically poop every 12-36 hours
  • Cats can jump up to five times their own height
  • Not all cats and dogs have 18 toes…but most do (five front, four back)

We live in the information age. Learning about your furry friends can give you insights into being a better pet parent. Have fun and give them the best possible life you can…because that’s what they do for us!
