Cats, which belong to the feline family, carry ringworm and parasites such as fleas and toxoplasma and are more widely used as pets in homes around the world.
The ancestor of the domestic cat is presumed to be the desert cat of the ancient Egyptian period, the Persian cat of Persia, which has been domesticated by humans for 3,500 years (but not as completely as the dog).
General cat: round head, short face, five fingers on the forelimbs, four toes on the hindlimbs, sharp and curved claws at the end of the toes, claws can retract, with night vision.
Hunting other animals by ambush, most can climb up trees. Cats have fatty fleshy pads on the bottom of their toes to avoid making noise when walking and not scaring rats when hunting. The paws are contracted when walking to prevent them from being blunted and will be extended when hunting mice and climbing.
Although the cat looks high and cold, whether you are poor or rich, it looks down on you. Different breeds of cats also have different characteristics, for newcomers to cat ownership, too much personality of the cat is very difficult to manage, so what cat is suitable for newcomers?
