So all cats except the hairless breeds (such as Sphynx) are covered in a generous coat of fur right? Did you know that different parts of the hair on your cats body have different names? Heres a good example for you… have a peek at your kitty’s ear, you will see little tufts of hair. These are called “ear furnishings” and grow there to insulare the ear, helping to keep out dirt, bugs, and direct sound.Always make sure you are careful with their ears when petting your cat, so that you do not injure their hearing :) (especially around small children).
