Fun Facts About Cats

Did you know:

- Cats are members of the Felidea family.
- A litter of kittens is called a kindle, and a group of cats is called a clowder
- Cats are the only animals that purr. They can purr at around 26 cycles per second which is the same frequency as an idling diesel engine!
