In today's episode of our Life's Little Mysteries podcast, we'll take a closer look at one of the most puzzling animals on our planet, and one that you may share your home with: cats.
Why do cats love boxes, why do they wiggle their butts before pouncing, and does catnip really make them "high"? Listen to "Life's Little Mysteries 3: Mysterious Cats" to find out!
We'll also peer into an ancient Egyptian cat mummy with a surprise hidden inside, and we'll hear from an animal behavior scientist about how cats bond with people (it turns out that cats like us! They really like us!).
