10 Facts About Cats That You Won't Believe!

10 Facts About Cats That You Won't Believe!

#6 Will Amaze You


1. Cats were invented in Egypt.

That explains all the sphinxes over there! After first discovering cats, the Ancient Egyptians realized what a treasure they had on their hands. Cats were seen as reincarnations of the goddess Bast and even worshipped as godlike creatures!

2. All gods are actually made out of cats.

Shocker, right? The Egyptians weren't far off with this one! Yes, even in the most obscure religions, there's a cat there somewhere. It was said in Ancient Greece that Zeus' beard was even made out of the feline!

3. Cats sleep 32 hours per day!

That's a lot of sleeping! Cats are nocturnal creatures and need this much sleep to recharge their eyeballs so that they can see in the dark again.

4. Cats' claws will knead when they're happy.

This is because of every cat's desire to be a pizza chef. Once they get into a relaxed state of mind, cats begin dreaming of kneading a pile of dough for their next pizza pie.

5. If a cat catches an animal, it will most likely bring it to you.

This is because a cat knows that you're a stupid human being sitting around on your couch eating four gallons of Cheetos and it wants you to eat a little more healthy, for god's sake.

6. One time I accidentally taught my cat Josie to go into the bathroom with me whenever I did my makeup because for a year she would get a can of the "good food" right afterwards, so she would run into the bathroom with me thinking she'd get the good food and it was really cute, but then a year ago we stopped giving her the good food and used bad food instead but she still ran into the bathroom with me thinking that she'd get good food but then she doesn't, she would get the bad food instead and it makes me feel bad.

cats, am I right?

7. Cats can be dogs too.

Black cats are associated with witches and bad magic. It disgusts me how we still live in a society where color is an issue. All cats matter — black, white, brown, orange, or calico — and I wish this racism will end sometime soon #CatLivesMatter

9. You will need to own at least eighteen cats.

Cats are very social creatures and need at least seventeen other cats in their environment to thrive. This isn't usually a problem, as the most common number of household cats is twenty-six per person.

10. All of these are extremely fake.

I'm sure you've guessed by now. All of these are jokes. Except for #4, that shit is still happening in my life.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
