      We all know that cats are legendary sleepers. For an average of 15 hours a day, cats sleep a lot. Most of that time is during daytime. Why?

      Did you know that cats do sweat? and unlike us, cats don't sweat through their skin, (which would have been uncomfortable because of their fur). Cats actually have sweat glands in their paws! They sweat when it’s too hot or sometimes when they’re frightened. A stressed cat can leave behind a wet trail of pawprints!
