3 Common Cat Myths… DEBUNKED

1. CATS HATE WATER

Everybody thinks water is a cat’s worst enemy, when that simply isn’t true. Most cats hate water because they’re forced into it, which makes sense! When allowed to discover water on their own terms, most cats are actually fascinated with it. If you don’t believe us, think back and do you remember anytime your cat was fascinated with a faucet, or climb into your tub after a shower? They know exactly what those two are used for, and are curious about it!.

2. CATS LOVE MILK – AND IT’S GOOD FOR THEM!

Every one has seen pictures of kittens drinking milk from a saucer, and it even seems as though this is a common practice for cat owners to put out. What people don’t realize is that cats should really only be drinking their mother’s milk, not the processed milk us humans drink. Our milk is incredibly hard to digest for cats, and can lead to things like diarrhea or stomach aches. A mother knows best, and her milk is the only milk kittens and cats should be drinking.

3. FREE FALLING

Cats are known for being able to land on their feet if they fall from certain heights. While this is true, cats are in no way have super powers, and this ability only works within a specified height range. If they fall from too high of a height, are suprised and pushed, or even just mess up the landing, they can fall and seriously injure themselves. So, it’s never safe to drop your cat from any height, even if you think they’ll land on their feet.
