  2. Far and away the favorite breed of cat registered with the Cat Fanciers’ Association is the Persian.
  3. The hearing of the average cat is at least five times keener than that of a human adult. Cats can rotate their ears 180 degrees.

  5. Domestic cats spend about 70 percent of the day sleeping and 15 percent of the day grooming.
