Over years, cats, and how they view the world revolving around them, has been a subject to numerous of myths, misbeliefs and even intentionally played false acquisitions. Some of those myths are already gone, but some, unfortunately, live up to nowadays. In this article, we have listed most popular myths about cats.
Research shows domestic cats are extremely good hunters with an average of every third pounce resulting in a catch. Only few other animals, mostly large cats, can beat it.
Is it coincidence? Not even close, here are the reasons why cats are one of most successful hunters ever walked on the Earth.
One of the scariest vocalizations made by cats is hissing. Sometimes, if you enter an empty room and hear a sudden hiss, skin or your neck may crawl. It’s that horrifying for a good cause and very well relates to the reason why cats hiss in the first place.
For quite a long time cats were considered as antisocial creatures, the ones who do not crave company, the ones who walk by themselves, and as the ones, who, even if live together, are actually living “apart together”. But what is the reality? Are cats solitary animals, or do they need other animals and humans by their side?

There are several hundred dog breeds, and only less than a hundred different cat breeds. But it’s not only about the count. What we see in dogs is the high diversity between different breeds. We have large, giant and small dogs. We have long legged dogs, we have flat faced dogs and heck, we even have dogs who do not even look like ones in the first place.
In cats, largest differences appear to be some having folded ears and some having no tail. But they all look like cats. It may lead to a question – why? How come we have so many dog breeds, and so few cat breeds? Is it fair?
Cats are well known hunters. In the Medieval Europe they were associated with witch-crafting and were treated like evil animals. The only reason they were at least bit tolerated and “accepted”, was because, when it came to protecting granaries from rodents, like mice or rats, the domestic cat had no competition. But if they are that good hunters, does it mean they are extremely hungry?
