Meet Louie, My New Kitten

My favorite Christmas present I got this year was my new kitten named Louie. As a major animal lover, I have always wanted my very own pet and I finally have one! Louie is 3 months old and I absolutely love him! He loves to play and he especially loves to cuddle in my lap. I love knowing that if I ever have to travel, I can bring Louie along when I stay at Red Roof Inn with no extra charge!

Here are some fun facts about cats I got off of Cat Time:

  1. The average cat sleeps 16-18 hours per day. (No wonder Louie loves cuddling in my lap most of the day!)
  2. Most cats are lactose intolerant and should not be given cow’s milk.
  3. A male cat is called a “Tom” and a female cat is called a “Queen.” (Louie is a Tom.)1419704639502
  4. Cats have more than 100 different vocal sounds. (Louie has a silent meow and a loud meow. He mostly wants food or attention when he meows.)
  5. Cats can run up to 30 miles per hour. (Louie runs this fast whenever there is a loud noise!)
  6. A cat can jump approximately seven times its height. (Right now, Louie can hardly jump up to my bed, but he is still growing!)
  7. A cat’s sense of smell is approximately 14 times greater than that of a human.
  8. Cats have five toes on each front paw, but only four toes on each back paw.
  9. Cats who fall five stories have a 90 percent survival rate.
  10. A cat’s whiskers aren’t just for show – they help cats detect objects and navigate in the dark, especially since cats cannot see in complete darkness, only at low light levels.
  11. Humans greet each other by shaking hands; cats greet one another by touching their noses together.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas just like I did and a great New Year’s! Make sure to follow the Red Roof dog, Mac, on twitter at @redroofmac.
