Cat Paws and Claws

2019-04-07T00:00:00+02:00

A cat's claws(five on the front paws, four on the back) - are a cat��s primary hunting weapons. Their design makes them efficient for stalking as well as for the kill. Their paws end in sensitive, hairless pads which, when the cat is walki��ng normally or relaxed, conceal the sheathed or retracted claws. (Fun fact. Only the cheetah of all the cats is unable to retract its claws, trading off silence for speed. They are the fastest of the cats but are virtually unable to climb.)

Cat’s Teeth – Hunting and tearing teeth

2019-04-07T00:00:00+02:00

Wild cats and domestic cats allowed to hunt feed by tearing pieces of flesh from their prey and swallowing them whole as cat��s totally lack grinding teeth. The food is not chewed but digested entirely in the stomach. Most prominent among the cat��s 30 teeth (kittens have four fewer) are the four long canines set below the nose and above the chin which are used for killing and holding prey and for tearing the flesh.
