Having a good command of your cat’s body is essential for providing the best care for your cat. You can spend a few minutes in this article to see the operation of each parts of the body:
Usually a very flexible neck indicates a cat’s predatory nature. It offers a wide range of motion for seeking for grey.
Cat’s eyes generally tend to be large and well protected deep inside strong sockets. Each eye is unique to be equipped with a depth of focus specialization to provide better observation for grey.
Your cat’s teeth are the most typical organs for hunting. Teeth can provide fangs for killing, incisors for holding onto prey and molars for tearing. The lower jaw is particularly flexible to be good to chew food.
Your cat’s ears look like cups collecting a wide range of sounds. The muscles in the ears act as precision instruments to shape the ears in specific ways to seek for specific sounds. Similar to your ears, your cat’s inner ears can help to be balanced.
Larger bones along the middle of your cat’s back are to support the weight of the torso. Muscles along the back are strong enough to deliver large prey in long distances if necessary.
Cat’s back legs can drive them move backward and forward. The “knee” is the opposite of the “elbow” on front legs. The combination work of them can give your cat a unique ability to spring and pounce.
Different from the back legs, cat’s front legs not only can move forward and backward, but also roll around a bit so that the underside of paws can be turned toward the face.
Cat’s paws are long enough that your cat actually walks on its “fingers” supported by sensitive pads. Claws can be stretched inward and outward.
