Project Main Details

Cat Facts  
These Cat Facts will be put on a phone line. The main purpose of this phone line is humor (due to the random nature of cat facts). The cat facts can be read in either a dead-pan fashion, or a very overly-excited (car salesman-like) fashion. Please feel free to provide both versions in the audition. The final script will include 99+ Cat Facts to be read aloud.

Every year, nearly four million cats are eaten in Asia.

On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping. That means a nine-year-old cat has been awake for only three years of its life.

Unlike dogs, cats do not have a sweet tooth. Scientists believe this is due to a mutation in a key taste receptor.

When a cat chases its prey, it keeps its head level. Dogs and humans bob their heads up and down.

The technical term for a cat’s hairball is a “bezoar.”
A group of cats is called a “clowder.”

Female cats tend to be right pawed, while male cats are more often left pawed. Interestingly, while 90% of humans are right handed, the remaining 10% of lefties also tend to be male.

A cat cannot climb head first down a tree because its claws are curved the wrong way

A cat can’t climb head first down a tree because every claw on a cat’s paw points the same way. To get down from a tree, a cat must back down.

Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only about 10.

A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain than it is to a dog’s. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.i

There are more than 500 million domestic cats in the world, with approximately 40 recognized breeds.

Approximately 24 cat skins can make a coat.

While it is commonly thought that the ancient Egyptians were the first to domesticate cats, the oldest known pet cat was recently found in a 9,500-year-old grave on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. This grave predates early Egyptian art depicting cats by 4,000 years or more.

During the time of the Spanish Inquisition, Pope Innocent VIII condemned cats as evil and thousands of cats were burned. Unfortunately, the widespread killing of cats led to an explosion of the rat population, which exacerbated the effects of the Black Death.
