In this essay I am going to examine how dogs and cats can find their way home over long distances. Firstly, it is well-known the story about that cat that travelled 200 miles in 2013 to get home. How could it be? It is just unbelievable! Cats use a system to make a mental map of the place; like that they claim their territory, which is very important to them.
By the way, there is a cat called Omar. It is thought to be the world’s longest cat. It is 120 centimetres long. It is nearly two thirds of the height of an ordinary person! And it weighs 14 kilometres.
In addition to this, finding the way to get home depends on the different species. For instance, seabirds and also dung beetle are thought to steer by the sun and the stars. As well, many more animals navigate via magnetism, included cats. Mammals have a range of ways to get around, so it doesn’t surprise us that dogs can do very long ways thanks to their big scent.
Last, but not least, from my point of view, we should all agree that cats or dogs can be as clever as humans are. That is why they can do incredible things such as spending time with us, helping us in our real life and the sweetest thing, giving us so much love.
