CAT NOSES ARE NOT JUST CUTE!

A cat's nose in the most important of all of their sense organs. They have about 200 million scent receptors, far more than dogs or humans. This sense of smell helps them in many ways:

  • To find prey

  • To greet another cat (they first sniff each others noses) and then move onto other areas.

  • To stimulate appetite (because they have very few taste receptors, they use smell instead of flavor to stimulate hunger, or to know when something is toxic).

A cat's nose color is generally related to the color of its fur.

  • Black cats most often have black noses.


  • White cats generally have pink noses.




  • Orange cats most often have a peach tone.




  • Multicolored cats may have multicolored noses.


Cats noses also come in a variety of shapes.

  • Some cats have a roman shaped nose.

  • Some have a snub nose.


  • Some have a dip between forehead and nose.


THE MOST FASCINATING FACT ABOUT A CAT'S NOSE IS THAT THEY ARE LIKE OUR FINGERPRINTS. NO TWO CATS HAVE THE SAME NOSE-PRINT.
