This is a pretty good collection of cat facts and trivia. A sampling:

  • It is a common belief that cats are color blind. However, recent studies have shown that cats can see blue, green and red.

  • A cat can jump even seven times as high as it is tall.

  • Cats do not think that they are little people. They think that we are big cats. This influences their behavior in many ways.

  • In ancient Egypt, killing a cat was a crime punishable by death.

  • Besides smelling with their nose, cats can smell with an additional organ called the Jacobson's organ, located in the upper surface of the mouth.

  • A happy cat holds her tail high and steady.

  • A cat's brain is more similar to a man's brain than that of a dog.

  • If your cat snores, or rolls over on his back to expose his belly, it means he trusts you.
