Anatomy the Sense
The sense of a cat.
A cat possesses 5 senses like us.
Hear, see, smell, taste and feel.
In a cat are the senses only much better developed.
They are at all times aware of their surroundings and what is going on around them playing back.
The ears of a cat can move independently of each other.
As a result, you get a bit of a radar effect.
They can also observe very highs (up to 60,000 HZ).
Even higher than dogs.
For example, they can with ease the high beeps of a mouse (40,000 HZ) observe, that we all can't hear.
In the ear of the CAT is also the sense organ, which makes sure that a cat can climb well and can change very quickly from position or movements may at.
The eyes of a cat are particularly well developed.
They can see things well at times when we would be utterly blind.
The eyes of a cat are so developed, that they can observe everything around them and even things that fall just outside their field of vision.
A cat also has approximately six times less light than we need to be able to see.
This allows a cat at the slightest twilight also still see perfectly.
At absolute darkness sees a cat too nothing at all, this is what often claims to contradistinction are.
Also that a cat would be totally color blind is wrong.
A cat reads a smell as we do with a book.
He cans most complicated scents, or combinations of these, recognize it.
For example, a cat you cannot just fake, when you eat a pill by his intestinal want to do!
With the organ of Jacobson (this is between nose and pharynx), a cat can almost taste the smell of something.
He takes with the tongue fragrances from the air and then expresses their tongue against the opening of the organ Jacobson.
The taste of a cat is the only sense that is not highly developed.
It is much worse than with us.
We have roughly 9,000 taste buds on our tongue and a cat less than 500.
If a cat so has a preference for certain food, it will be because of the smell, temperature or structure of the food, or a combination of all three.
Feel does a cat with his whiskers.
Whiskers are hairs that thicker and stiffer than other hair.
They exist just like any other hair out lifeless material, without nerves.
It's not a whisker to one of the most sensitive senses of the cat makes his hair follicles.
Each hair follicle contains a tube with blood (blood sinus).
The root is 3 x so deep in the skin, then each regular hair.
When the whisker is touched by the bending of the hair (this can by touch, but also by sound, wind or other vibration) the blood into the sinus moved.
The blood strengthens the movement, whereby the nerves at the end of the sinus extremely subtle movements.
This makes making the whiskers are super important for the survival of the cat.
It is said that the whiskers of a cat so sensitive to vibration, that they feel far in advance when a storm or an earthquake is coming.
