Happy Fun Fact Friday, all!
Did you know that in order for cats to avoid predators, their saliva has deodorizing enzymes so they remain as scentless as possible?
It is also why your cat grooms him or herself immediately after eating – to prevent the smell of the prey they just consumed from attracting predators!
How cool is that?
Everything happens for a reason in the cat world! 🙂
