_____________________________________________________________________________________________

A cat (Felis catus) is a small, furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal. Humans considered cats as domesticated pets. They help humans hunt household pests. They are good companions, too, at home. Because of their close association with humans, cats can be found anywhere.

Cats have strong, flexible bodies and quick reflexes; they won’t get hurt or die when they fall. They have sharp claws and teeth that help them catch or kill preys. They can see in the dark and use their ears to locate their preys. They can hear higher frequency sounds than humans can perceive. Thus, they say that “cats are nosy.” They like heresays; it’s a joke for everybody.

They use different vocalizations and other types of body language for communication like meowing (one thing that makes me smile, kidding aside), purring, trilling, hissing, grunting, and growling.

They have a rapid breeding rate since they are lovable pets for humans. Did you know that there’s a hobby known as cat fancy? You can register your bred cats as pedigree pets. However as much as cats are lovable for humans, they can’t be taken care of people who have allergies. You may suffer from dyspnea (difficulty in breathing) or coughing brought about by cat’s fur, just like in asthma. Cat’s fur may also trigger allergic rhinitis. Thus, you can’t cradle, hold, or touch them. If you have allergic rhinitis, you may suffer from unstoppable sneezing. Otherwise, you medicate or use your nasal spray to stop sneezing.

So as much I want to go near to cats, I can’t . . . timelessly . . .
