A group of cats is called a “clowder.”

A cat can’t climb head first down a tree because every claw on a cat’s paw points the same way. To get down from a tree, a cat must back down.

Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only about 10.

There are at any one time in the UK, tens of thousands of pets in shelters and rescue centres, all waiting, desperately, for a new, loving home. Whilst some of these dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and just about every other pet you can imagine, will be lucky and will find a new family, too many others will not and they will spend their entire lives, lonely and depressed in shelters.

We’re all familiar with the following collective nouns: a gaggle of geese, a colony of ants, a flock of sheep; but what about a nuisance of cats, or a mischief of mice? I’ve read but never used the expression a murder of crows in a conversation. Maybe I should.

Dogs abound in literature: the loyal Argos of Homer’s The Odyssey, Jip in Dickens’ David Copperfield, Fred Gipson’s eponymous Old Yeller, Dorothy’s beloved terrier Toto in The Wizard of Oz, Tintin’s sidekick Snowy, and Elizabeth Barret Browning’s spaniel Flush – the subject of a whole book by Virginia Woolf.
