We’re ending the week with some old-fashioned cat wisdom and four feline fun facts. When these paintings of cats and kittens were painted over 100 years ago, cat care and veterinary advice was in Dark Ages. We’ve come a long way since then but the facts bear repeating in a fun new way.
World Spay Day is February 23rd. Kitten season is coming. Kittens as young as 4 months old can and do get pregnant.

This is an ad for silk thread from 1912. Cats and kittens have been depicted in art with ribbons and balls of yarn for hundreds of years. If you Google “cat ribbons” over 14 million results pop up.

3) Black and white cats like all two-colored cats are called piebald.
