The legend of uncertain origin to explain why the cat has the amazing ability to purr.
What distinguishes the cat from other animal species, in addition to the unmistakable meow? I am purr. We have already explained why the cat purrs and why we benefit from it, but we have never talked about a legend that emphasizes why the cat would be able to purr.
The legend is of uncertain origin as some argue that it comes from the British tradition, others from the German one. It wants to go and explain how the cats received the gift to be able to emit that celestial "music"! and now we will tell you!
In an undefined time, a king and a queen brought one into the world beautiful girl! the happiness was great for this happy event, so much so that they accepted without reserve the request of a gypsy, to be able to read the future to them. The rulers certainly thought that their daughter's future would be surrounded by virtue, wealth and beauty. In short, a very bright future. Unfortunately, the response of the gypsy was not like that! It would have contracted a serious illness resulting in death, if she revealed her feelings to a young prince!
The parents of the little girl fell into a state of restlessness and despair, but, the gypsy gave him advice, so that the prophecy would prove less harmful. Three white cats were placed to protect the princess and the felines were entrusted with flax balls and gold balls.
These three cats were special cats as special were their powers. If they played with the linen balls, the princess did not run no kind of danger, if instead they started playing with the gold ones, it was a clear sign that the princess was in serious danger!
For 16 years, cats only played with flax balls until a prince came into the kingdom who did fall in love madly the princess. She, who was aware of the prophecy, tried in every way to repress the feeling of love she had for the prince, but one day they both confessed their feelings.
And from that moment on, the cats dropped the flax balls and started playing with the gold ones! the prophecy was coming true, but it changed! The fatal disease did not affect the princess in the least, but the prince. Since that day if the princess had not been able to weave 10,000 skeins of linen, on the 27th day on prince would die. The fate of the prince seemed already sealed, since there was a detail not to be overlooked so that the prince had saved his life. That is, the princess had to weave the skeins, without that other hands would help her in the work.
The princess lost all hope, but the three white cats came to her aid. THE cats in fact they were equipped with one outstanding ingenuity and with a stratagem they helped the princess to weave. Did you understand what was the trick adopted by the cats? They had no hands, but, legs and therefore they could help the princess.
So princess and cats finally managed to save the prince. The cats for this generous gesture received a prize! That is the ability to purr! And since that day all the cats that descend from that noble "family" have the gift of being able to emit that sweet sound!
That of the black cat it is a real myth: there are many questions that we usually ask ourselves, because the legend about black cats sees these cats at the center of some statements that are not always true, indeed. So let's find out everything you need to know about it.
Splendid and fascinating Ashera, a cat of unusual origin which still today generates not a few controversies in this regard. Similar to a wild feline in appearance but as sweet as a common domestic cat, the Ashera is a hybrid created in the laboratory.
It is quite recent story of the cat Chausie , a hybrid cat breed created in the 1960s in the United States. The Chausie was born to satisfy the desire of some feline enthusiasts to have a wild but at the same time tameable cat at their disposal.
There are things that are learned with experience, others that are acquired through "secondary" ways, at least as far as theory is concerned. Well, they didn't explain the theory well to this Tabby kitten In the video , who cannot drink from the tap.
The body language of our four-legged friend is crucial to know how he is and what is going through his head. Centuries of coexistence increasingly in close contact have allowed us to improve the bipedal-quadruped relationship. Anyone who knows felines knows that most of their communication is non-verbal.
