Have you ever had an electric shock when stroking your cat?? Here's the reason why.

During fair weather, when relative humidity is low, static electricity can build up on a cat as it touches other objects. Cat hair loses electrons easily, so cats become positively charged.

When a cat licks itself, the moisture makes its fur more conductive – so the charge can more easily ‘leak’ off the fur. Many cats don’t like being stroked in cold winter weather because a fur charge can build up to cause small sparks, irritating them.

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
