Cat Puzzles For Cat Lovers

From FlashPuzzleZone.Com:

The FlashPuzzleZone has just launched a gallery of “Cat Puzzles.” This gallery is definitely for the Cat lover. There are many different cat breeds among the jigsaw puzzles. There are dozens of breeds of cat, some hairless or tailless as a result of mutations, and they exist in a variety of different colors. One of my favorite cat jigsaw puzzles in the gallery, is a funny looking photo of sphynx hairless cat. The Devon Rex and Cornish Rex are beautiful looking cats, we have a couple of jigsaw puzzles in that family. Other cat jigsaw puzzles include a couple of Tonkinese photos, a beautiful Chartreux, and many other beautiful cats. So if you are a cat lover, the flashpuzzlezone’s cat jigsaw puzzle section is the place for you. If you have friends that are cat or jigsaw puzzle lovers, be sure to let them know about this section. 

The cat, also known as the domestic cat or house cat, is a small carnivorous mammal of the subspecies Felis silvestris catus. Its most immediate pre-domestication ancestor is believed to be the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica and both subspecies have 38 chromosomes. [1] The cat has been living in close association with humans for somewhere between 3,500 and 8,000 years. [2] There are dozens of breeds of cat, some hairless or tailless as a result of mutations, and they exist in a variety of different colors. They are skilled predators and have been known to hunt over one thousand different species for food. They are also intelligent animals, and some can be trained or learn by themselves to manipulate simple mechanisms such as lever-handled doors and flush toilets (see Cat intelligence). They communicate by calling (“meow” or “miaou”), purring, hissing, growling, chirping, clicking, grunting, and about a hundred other vocalizations and body language. [3] Cats in colonies use a mix of vocalizations and body language to communicate with each other. Much like some other domesticated animals (such as the horse), cats may also still live effectively in the wild as a feral cat. Contrary to the popular conception of the cat as a solitary animal, cats often form small colonies in the wild. The cat’s association with humans leads it to figure prominently in the mythology and legends of several cultures, including those of the ancient Egyptians, ancient Chinese, Norse, and the Medieval King of Wales, Hywel Dda (the Good) passed the first animal welfare legislation in the world by making it illegal to kill or harm a cat, with severe punishment for those who did. However, cats were also sometimes considered evil, for example being deemed unlucky or associated with witches in many medieval cultures.
