According to Forever Vets

The three most loved pets as of 2022, in order of popularity, are…  

  1. Dog
  2. Cat
  3. Fish

I think all three pets are great, but when it comes to attitude, nothing beats the “whatever” attitude of a cat. ??

Cat Facts

Cats are amazing creatures!   It was hard to narrow it down because there are so many fun cat facts, but I did it and here they are.

  1. A healthy adult cat can jump 5-6 times their height. WOW
  2. Cats sleep on average 15 hours a day (Shocking I know, only 15 hours).
  3. Cats can run up to 30 mph.  I can run roughly that fast. ??
  4. The oldest cat ever recorded was thirty-eight years old. Her name was Crème Puff and she lived in Texas.
