A domestic cat is similar in many aspects of a wild cat. Even though domestic cat has been interfered by human activities, it is still basically designed as a scaring predator and its senses are still very much sensitive such as identifying, stalking and hunting prey. It is unique combination of its taste, hearing, touch, smell, sight and agility.
The sense of taste is very acute. If you have ever mixed some medicine into its food, you will notice your cats’ refusal behavior. You have to be aware of one perceived wisdom that cats do not have a sweet tooth.
Cat’s hearing is much more acute than that of humans, particularly it can hear the higher range of sounds. Its hearing is able to respond to a human voice and a small number of words, but its brain seems not corresponding with its hearing. Cats have a well-developed sense of hearing to hear short range sounds, even though although it is extreme difficult for it to distinguish a mixture of different sounds and distant noises.
The cat’s whiskers act as a guide in low level light. Both the whiskers and hair remain sensitive to its sense of touch and vibrations. These features originally lie in its natural survival instinct. Cats don’t often locate on top of the food chain and as they were often prey for larger animals.
A cat has a variety of sensory cells on the back of its tongue, which can “taste” any smell and distinguish a huge range of prey. As cats keep sensitive on its territories with such as acute sense of smell, it is logical that they differentionate the boundaries of their territory with smell.
Cats are born to see in very poor light levels, so it is good at telling different colors. Its sight is for hunting, and it can distinguish small movements.
