Do You Know Your Cat?

 They do something called padding to get comfy (when they are kittens they do it to their mums to get milk).

People feed them milk but it gives them bad tummy aches  (if you really want to give them milk you can get special cat milk from pet shops).

You may think eeeew when they bring dead mice and birds (however it’s a present to say I love you or thank you for feeding me).

When they scratch on the curtains they are not being cheeky they are doing it because you probably have not provided them with a scratching post.

People say that elephants never forget- well this is true! Elephants have big brains and good memories, they can remember water holes and paths that lead to good feeding areas and recognise other elephants that they have met- sometimes many years earlier. Did you know that the elephant is the second tallest animal known to Earth?

Baby elephants are born with black fur covering their skin. Most of it falls off. When baby elephants grow up, they will continue to have thick hairs at the ends of their tails and a little hair on their faces like lions, bears, rabbits, and human’s. Elephants belong to a group of animals scientists call mammals. All mammals have hair. Elephants are the largest land animal in the world. The huge ears of African elephants are the same shape as the continent of Africa.
