We never learned about all this in school! Even though cats are one of the most popular species of pet, these are the kinds of facts no one is talking about. It's time for that to change--don't you think?

"More than once I've woken up with my sleeping cat's paw in my mouth," shared @hugefrog88, "so it's great to hear about the sweat thing." LOL! We are so sorry for laughing, but that's such a cat-like thing for a pet to do. Why in the world were they pawing around in your mouth?!

As fun as that fact is, though, there's one in particular that has commenters talking: that cats cannot taste sweetness. @Brendanp66 went as far as to claim, "the sweet [fact] is a lie," so we had to double-check for ourselves.

Despite many cat owners claiming that their fur baby enjoys ice cream or sugar, those kitties are definitely not tasting sweetness in the same way a person would. Luckily, food for cats doesn't need to be sweet to be enticing!

All in all, it seems like these cat facts check out!
