ASK April 2017
Cats have lived with humans for over six thousand years. When their pet cats died, Ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows in mourning! But despite their cute and cuddly appearance, today’s cats still have a lot in common with their wild relatives. Read all about cats big and small, wild and tame in this month’s issue of ASK! Follow the evolution of cats “From Wild to Mild,” and check out the many varieties of cats in “Tiger Tabby’s Family Photos.”
Why can’t cheetahs claws retract like other cats’? Find out how cats’ bodies adapt to their environments in “Born to Hunt,” or learn “How to Speak Cat” if you’d rather ask one yourself. Sadly, many of our kitties’ wild cousins are in grave danger of extinction. Read about the fight to protect them in “Saving the Tigers.” And don’t forget to spot the wacky cat-themed April Fool’s item in Nosy’s News! This month’s ASK is the cat’s meow.
