  • INTRO----- HI GUYS I’M ALEX FARNHAM AND THIS IS ANIMALIST

  • NEWS. YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT CATS TEND TO GREET

  • EACH OTHER WITH A NOSE BUMP, BUT WHY IS THAT? I MEAN, THINK ABOUT IT, PUTTING YOUR FACE

  • IN SOMEONE ELSE’S PERSONAL BUBBLE MAKES YOU PRETTY VULNERABLE TO BEING ATTACKED!

  • BUT FOR CATS, IT’S A SIGN OF FRIENDSHIP AND TRUST.

  • DURING A NOSE BUMP, CATS CAN IDENTIFY EACH OTHER WHILE ALSO USING FACIAL SCENT GLANDS

  • ON THE LIPS, CHIN, AND CHEEKS, TO SPREAD THEIR OWN FRAGRANCE.

  • EACH CAT HAS A UNIQUE SCENT SIGNATURE THAT CAN TELL OTHERS WHAT GROUP THEY BELONG TO

  • AND WHERE THEYVE BEEN. WHILE WASHING ITSELF, A CAT TRANSFERS THIS

  • SCENT FROM IT’S MOUTH GLANDS TO IT’S FUR SO THAT IT CAN BE SPREAD TO OBJECTS, OR IN

  • SOME CASES PEOPLE. IF A CAT NOTICES OTHER CATS WITH UNFAMILIAR

  • SCENTS, IT WILL MARK IT’S TERRITORY ON THEM BY RUBBING ITS FACE ON THEIR HEAD DURING THE

  • NOSE BUMP. SINCE SMELL IS A CAT’S STRONGEST SENSE,

  • IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE WHY IT’S ALSO THEIR FIRST FORM OF COMMUNICATION.

  • NOSE BUMPS START WHEN THEY ARE TEENY, TINY KITTENS WHO, DESPITE BEING BLIND AND DEAF,

  • HAVE FULLY DEVELOPED SENSES OF TOUCH AND SMELL. WITH THESE BASIC SENSES, KITTENS LEAVE THEIR

  • SCENT ON THEIR MOTHER WHEN NURSING AND RETURN TO THE SAME SPOT EACH FEEDING TIME

  • THE MOTHER CAT LEARNS TO IDENTIFY EACH KITTEN BASED ON THEIR SMELL AND HER OWN SCENT ON

  • THEM. IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR CAT SMELL LIKE ANYTHING,

  • WHAT WOULD IT BE? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

  • SO WE ALL KNOW CATS ALSO USE THEIR SENSE OF SMELL WHILE THEY EAT! WHICH LEADS ME TO OUR
