1. Tough tongue: Cats’ tongues are covered with little structures called “filiform papillae,” which are like tiny hooks pointing toward the throat. These hook-like structures help hold food while a cat is eating. The papillae also help with grooming. Humans can feel these barbs when licked by cats.

2. Sleepy time: Cats are born loungers and will spend on average 16 hours of the day snoozing. Only sloths spend more time asleep.

3. Meeeoooowww: Cats only meow to communicate with humans, not amongst themselves. (Learn more about the Cat’s Meow and the sound the cat makes around the world.)
