Cats are funny to watch. We were outside and watching the cat next door play with leaves. He chased them down and caught them. Than the leaf got the best of him and blew away, Poor cat got tired and went to sleep on their porch or his porch. Cats can swim if they have to, But most cats do not want to be in water. A cat's tongue are covered in tiny spines called papillae. It feels like sandpaper to us. Their tongue allows the cat to clean themselves real good. The first cat show by Cat Fanciers Association was in 1906 in New York, Cats have whiskers on their eye lids and on the back of their legs and of course on their face. A cat has more human feelings than any other animal.

@jstory07 I bought a tub and filled it with water and put on our porch for my cat but she would not go inside it. She loves when it rains and likes to go on the porch if I let her and loves to drink water so thought she would like it but she did not. Not sure if it was that she could not get inside so tried to make it easier but she still did not go in so put it out for others to take. It was not expensive. Cats are very very entertaining. I like to watch her chase flies. she plays with it and then may kill it and leave it there. Thank you for telling me about the tongue part. I did not know that. I am not sure if I ever saw a cat show before. I did not know that there are whiskers on their eyelids or on the back of their legs. I would say that was true about the human feelings. They can get very hurt by something you say. Thank you for teaching me some new facts I did not know about cats.

@jstory07 Cats are attracted to heat sourceses in general. My husband has a reading lamp that our cat Chinnia will get under and bake. He worries she'll get burned, but she's proven to be very smart.

Cat can be so funny to watch. Mine slings her mouse all over and then attacks her scratching stand. My oldest daughter's cat (my cat's mama), is so funny. My granddaughter booted her off a chair and Itty Bitty walked off, turned around, stared, walked back to my granddaughter and swatted her, then walked off again. She'll get up on the back of a chair, fall asleep, fall off the chair, and do it over and over.

I think all kritters share some human feelings but I have to agree that cats tend to show more than most.

Cats seem to like humans but do not let us know. They like to think they are in charge.

My family has a cat that has had a grumpy old man personality since they got him as a kitten. He will allow himself to be petted when he is in the mood, otherwise he will growl and scratch.

I believe it about the human feelings, Dennis loves me to rub his head, and when I go to bed, he comes in and puts his head by my hand. He watches when I go to bed.

I didn't know they had whiskers on their eyelids either. Mine was just chewing on my mask strings and ran away with it, when I tried to get it away from him. He thinks unless I am feeding him or playing with him, I am up to no good.

Whiskers on their legs...ok. Learned. Cats are born clowns it seems. But they can be intuitive knowing that you need to pet them and hear their purring, si they come to you.
