Why cats don’t smell
Observe the cat and you will see how much time she devotes to her toilet. It is no coincidence that cats were called neat cats. Indeed, they can sit almost for hours almost anywhere, clean their soft furry coat, and wash themselves. And they do it quite carefully and skillfully. Here the cat licks its left foot and rubs its cheeks and behind the ear. Having made several circular motions, she again licks the same foot and again rubs it in the same places. And so many times. It is better to wash your paw wet with saliva – dust and dirt are more likely to be cleaned off, which the cat immediately licks off the paw. Then the same procedure is repeated with the right foot. But now it’s over with his head. The cat changes position, stretches the hind leg up and licks the hair on it. Curved – licking the stomach, side, back of the sacrum. Her tongue is bright pink, thin, but rather rough – it cleans the fur coat better than any brush. Having washed, the cat lies down, curls up, nose to tail, closes its eyes and sleeps or just dozes.
Due to careful body care, cats smell almost nothing. This is very important during hunting, when a cat watches for mice: if the cat emitted a smell, the mouse would smell it from afar and would not crawl out of the hole. Cleanliness of cats is also expressed in the fact that they are accustomed to leave their stool in a specific place. And then they are sure to rake the paw left. Such is their program of behavior: not to leave behind themselves traces by which the enemy could detect them.
