more about cats

cute pink ears

"In addition to...sensitivity to ultrasound, cats can hear the same full range of frequencies that we can, from the lowest bass notes to the highest treble. Almost no other mammal exhibits such a wide range, about eleven octaves in total.

Cats' hearing is therefore superior to ours in many ways, but inferior in one respect: the ability to distinguish minor differences between sounds, both in pitch and intensity. If it was possible to train a cat to sing, it couldn't sing in tune (bad news for Andrew Lloyd Webber)."

  1. This is so interesting! And, something that I have not read before.

    What a wonderful photo (you're so good at photographing cats).

    Have a happy Thanksgiving, my friend.
