20 Surprising Fun Cat Facts – Abraham Lincoln Loved Cats!

CATURDAY FACTS – INTRO

Abraham Lincoln loved cats

ABRAHAM LINCOLN and his LOVE for CATS!

United States President, Abraham Lincoln, loved all animals, especially cats. He loved cats so much that his wife once said that cats were her husband’s hobby.

The then, Secretary of State William Seward, gave two kittens on Lincoln as a White House gift. The President loved to spend hours just petting the cats and talking to them.

He fed his kitties at the table. One time he used a gold fork to do that, which was too much for Mrs. Lincoln. His response?

“If a gold fork was good enough for former President Buchanan, it’s good enough for Tabby.”

AMAZING FUN CAT FACTS:

    1. Cats have over 20 muscles that control their ears.

    2. A group of cats is  called clowder.

    3. Cats have more data storage than an iPad.

    4. Abraham Lincoln had four cats in the White House.

    5. Adult cats only meow to communicate with humans.

    6. Some cats are ambidextrous. Although 40 to 50% of female cats are typically right-pawed, while male cats are typically left-pawed: Psychologists Deborah Wells and Sarah Millsopp of Queen’s University Belfast tested 42 house cats — 21 males and 21 females — to determine whether they favored their right or left paws when performing tasks of varying difficulty. Their report on the results has been accepted for publication in the journal Animal Behavior of Science Direct (play with your kitties and let me know if this is true. I did it and couldn’t prove it, 🤩 but then again, I’m not a Psychologist).

    7. SO SORRY dog lovers: A cat’s cerebral cortex (the part of the brain in charge of cognitive information processing) has 300 million neurons, compared with a dog’s 160 million. (BTW,  (I love dogs too 🐶).

    8. Cats are very picky creatures about their “bathroom.” If you have more than one feline, you should have one litter box for each one of them.

    9. They are the only mammals that cannot taste sweetness (no cake for my kitty-cats on my birthday).

    10. A cat can jump six times his length in a single bound.

    11. Cats love routine. Any change in their routine makes them mad, upset. Some cats get sick, they can vomit or refuse to eat.

    12. When Cats Leave Their Poop Uncovered It’s a Sign of Aggression.

    13. Kneading is a sign of contentment and happiness. Cats knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate the let-down of milk.

    14. There are currently 45 Hemingway cats living at the writer’s former home in Key West, Fla.

    15. A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint.

    16. The first cat in space was a French cat named Felicette (a.k.a. “Astrocat”) In 1963, France blasted the cat into outer space. Electrodes implanted in her brains sent neurological signals back to Earth. She survived the trip.

    17. A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.

    18. In several countries of Europe and North America black cats are a sign of bad luck, but in Britain and Australia black cats are considered lucky!

    19. Usually, a cat has about 12 whiskers on each side of its face. Have you counted them already? 😇

    20. A cat’s jaw can’t move sideways, that is why a cat can’t chew large chunks of food.

4 Best Festivals of 2018 to Celebrate Happiness and Fun

[the_ad_placement id=”into-the-content”]

HARBIN ICE SNOW IN CHINA

Harbin Ice and Snow fiesta is China’s original and greatest ice artwork festival, attracting hundreds of thousands of local people and visitors from all over the world.

The first Ice lanterns were a winter-time tradition in northeast China. During the Qing Dynasty(1644 – 1911), the locals and fishermen often made and used ice lanterns as jack-lights during the winter months.

At that time these were made simply by pouring water into a bucket that was then put out in the open to freeze. It was then gently warmed before the water froze completely so that the bucket-shaped ice could be pulled out.

Festivals in China

RIO DE JANEIRO

The awesome celebrations  of this county mark the start of the Lent period, dancers and revellers celebrate the occasion with colourful street parties.

Considered one of the biggest carnivals in the world, Brazil erupted in magnificent colours and samba parade.

Dancers performed on top of monumental floats, and orchestras and musicians played samba music for all to enjoy.

ALBUQUERQUE INTERNATIONAL BALLOON

The Fiesta continues for nine days, and you can enjoy various musical performances, see night glows in which the balloons propane burners are ignited, but the hot air balloons are tethered to the ground.

One of the best events is the Mass Ascension where hundreds of hot air balloons are launched in two waves and fill up the sky with bright colors.

My Cat tells you Happy Fourth of July 2018 Enjoy. Everybody have a great day!

A little bit of history before fun:

cute kitten and the usa flag

This holiday — also known as Independence Day — commemorates the fact that in 1776, the Continental Congress, representing the 13 colonies, approved the Declaration of Independence — the first step on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation.

It seems fitting to revisit the most famous words from the document; words that have guided us since that time:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
