Did you know that cats could and would starve themselves if they find the food you've served them unappealing? It's not a secret that cats are picky eaters, and this is not because they are trying to get on their feeders' nerves, but because they are wired genetically different from most mammals. In fact, a cat is the only mammal unable to taste sweet foods due to a lack of sweetness receptors on its tongue.

Cats conserve energy by sleeping for an average of 13 to 14 hours a day. Domesticated cats don't usually hunt for their own food; however, their instincts are still intact. In the wild, due to their physique, cats are considered to be predators, yet are still prey for larger animals; this is why they don't hunt during daylight. Cats would sleep during the day, hunt after dusk to avoid visibility, then would take a long nap, and just before sunrise, would wake for the day.
