Why does a cat bury a bowl?

Cats often surprise their owners with strange habits. Some refuse to drink from a bowl, but stubbornly attack the tap. Others arrange the most rigorous test drive for fillers. Still others act like an alarm clock in the middle of the night, suddenly deciding to knead their feet on their master’s belly. But if you delve into the matter, we will find that many of the “strange” habits are not at all strange. These are echoes of instincts that in the wild save feline lives. For example, do you know why a cat is burying a bowl of food? If not, we will tell you about it!

The mustache in cats grows not only under the nose, but also on the forehead, near the eyes, on the chin and even on the paws. More precisely, it is correct to call them not “mustache”, but “vibrissa”. These are sensitive, hard hairs that are longer than the coat. There are about 40 pieces of such hairs on the cat’s body, and only 24 of them are on the face.

Unlike simple hair, vibrissae are surrounded by hundreds of nerve endings and muscle fibers, and their root goes deep into the tissue.

Each vibrissa is a separate organ of touch, which 24 hours a day uninterruptedly transmits a signal to the animal’s brain. Vibrissas are present not only in cats, but also in many other mammals, including dogs. Continue reading

What are the needs of cats living at home?
Such a cat is limited in movement and spends most of its time sleeping and eating. Her inactive lifestyle is reflected in many physiological processes in the body. Low activity can lead to disruption of the gastrointestinal tract, deterioration in stool quality and the appearance of a sharp, unpleasant odor from the tray.
