If you're curious what show I'm referring to above, it's a French show that has been released on Netflix in English. It's called Black Spot in English, but its French title is Zone Blanche. I admittedly enjoy the suspense and horror elements it has to offer.
Of course, the above doodle is our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop!
Happy Caturday, friends!
Did you know?Did you know that the Norwegian Forest cat is often believed to be the breed most capable of climbing down a tree headfirst? Norwegian Forest cats stem from Scandinavia, where their ancestors traversed rough and rocky terrain. Scaling this sort of terrain required significant musculature and perhaps even especially strong and thick claws. Nowadays, Norwegian Forest cats often still retain these strong muscles and claws, which is why this breed tends to be deemed the most likely domestic cat to successfully climb down a tree headfirst.
As further explanation, cats' claws curve downward in a way that makes climbing up a tree relatively easy for them. This is because the curved claws can hook into the tree as the cat scales it. This same curvature of the claws, though, can make climbing down a tree headfirst difficult if not impossible for a cat. The curvature of the claws would instead make it easier for a cat to climb down a tree backwards, as that would allow the claws to hook into the tree. When it comes to Norwegian Forest cats, though, they're somewhat known for successfully traveling down trees headfirst. This is quite possibly due to their ancestrally inherited hefty musculature and strong, thick claws, which could allow them to better grip a tree even when going down it headfirst.
