Cat Myth--- busted?!?

I have an adorable 15-week-old Himalayan Kitten named Gary, and he's been with us almost a month now. It has been a couple years since having a cat, a many years since having a kitten.

He is a great cat, but so far with him I have learned that the myth

Cat's always land on all fours
IS NOT TRUE with my cat

Cat's are graceful
HAHAHA- after witnessing GARY attempting to jump on his cat tree and totally underestimating the distance and falling down comically time and time again, I just hope he doesn't give himself a kitty concussion.

Does anyone else have a Cat Myth Busted Story to share?

Haha, I'm with you on the busted myth of landing on all fours. Snowball will be on the top perch of the cat tree and will sometimes fall off, hitting every perch on the way down, then he hits the floor with an 'Oomph'. I'm dreading the day we need to drag him in for a broken leg or something.

As for my own myths to bust, hmm...don't think I have one other than to agree with yours. LOL!

Myth: Cats are independent.

Everywhere I go, they follow me -- from the bathroom to the front door to the trash can to the basement. They must be a part of it all!!

Scotty likes belly rubs occasionaly. He also responds to sit and up, but we're still working on shake. Come will be next, and then stay. =o)

Bumper tends to land on his head and is the most ungraceful cat going... i think thats part of his charm!

Will have to think of some myths

I wonder if landing on all fours is something that cats learn as they get older? When they were kittens, my cats landed however they fell, but now they seem to have the hang of it... most of the time.

Myth: cats don't like spicy food.

Rocket loves spicy food. Just a week or so ago I gave him the lid off a container of guacamole dip, and he slurped it clean, quick as a wink!!

MYTH: Cats DISLIKE newcomers

I just rescued three black kittens. My big black neutered cat Jade took over as the father of those kittens. He started protecting them and hanging out with them. Anyhow, he plays with them a lot....he defends the kittens against danger....he displines them when they are chewing on electrical cords or foam. He is a really good daddy.
