    There is some debate around this as it is unclear just how domestic the Savannah cat is. It is a hybrid breed that originates from the crossing of Siamese cats with Servals, an African wildcat. The second largest breed of cat is the Maine Coon.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    White cats, especially those with blue eyes, are much more likely to be more deaf than non-white cats. This is because the same gene that codes for a pure white coat, also can sometimes cause blue eyes and deafness. All white cats have this gene, but the deafness and blue eyes are only sometimes present.

    Cats purr for a variety of emotions.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Although cats often purr when they are content, cats can purr at anytime. The purpose of purring may be much more complicated than simple communication. Purring is at the same frequency as sounds that can improve bone density and promote healing. Purring is thought to be one of the reasons that cats suffer much less arthritis and other bone conditions than their fellow mammals.

    Most cats don't like swimming because they fur gets stuck down and they have to spend a long time fluffing it up with their tongues and they get cold. But Turkish vans have special soft fur that is naturally water resistant, meaning they quite like a dip!
