10 Tricky Cat Questions

9. Cat eye color is genetically connected to coat color.  True or False?

True!

 

10. Cats cannot perspire. True or False?

False. While cats do have sweat glands on their feet, it is not an efficient cooling method. Consequently, cats can overheat very quickly and suffer heatstroke even after only a few minutes in a locked car.

 

 

How did you do? Did any of these answers surprise you? Or are you a bonafide expert on felines?
