A cat can jump as much as seven times its height. Cats have five toes on each front paw, but only four toes on each back paw. Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten.
Goldfish have a reputation as short-lived creatures, but given proper care, they can live as long as 30 years in captivity. The oldest captive goldfish ever recorded was won at a fair in 1956 and died in 1999 at age 43.
Large parrots can outlive you. Macaws and Amazons are the longest-lived pet birds. With excellent care, your bird may live up to 100 years. African grays live about 25 years, as do conures. Cockatoos may reach 40.
