I heard that yesterday! Apparently they only meow to get our, specifically human, attention.

Strange, isn't it?

Nah.. it's a screaming noise. My pal the cat does it sometimes at night, standing on a fence post like he's the Lion King.

Lol sorry, can't help you there. The only time I ever hear my cats making 'screaming' noises is when they get into a turf war with other cats.

Did not need to know that! but now that you mention it.. cats tongues are also covered in hook-like barbs. I believe they assist in drinking.

I'd pay to have a tongue like that. :)

The male cat's ‘penis' is covered in hook-like barbs, and as he withdraws these barbs abrade the females cat's ‘vulva'. She will scream and turn to bite him. An experienced male cat will maintain control of her until he fees it is safe to release her and move away.

It may sound horrible but these hook-like barbs are essential in causing the female cat's ‘vulva' to be stimulated so as to release the eggs. One mating often is not enough to cause the ‘vulva' to release the eggs; therefore, in some circumstances 2 or more matings are needed.

Sexy ain't it

In attempt to steer the conversation away from how cats get busy.. Isaac Newton predicted the world will end in 2060.

Edit: Oops. He didn't predict exactly 2060, he said no sooner than 2060 which he arrived at through some odd calculations.

In 1952 Einstein (Albert, who else?) was offered presidency over Israel. He denied the offer for various reasons. One of them being "he was getting old".

This is a zoomed in version of the very first photograph capturing a human. (Picture fact!);

Edit: Lol "Capturing a human" That sounds like something that would be said on an animal documentary. Rephrase, capturing a person!
