About This Quiz

Do you watch all of the cat videos on social media... twice? Do you upload some of your own? Does the announcement of a new cat show on television excite you? Well, get your popcorn and soda, because we have a quiz for you. But this one isn't for the faint of heart. You've got to really be a cat person to ace this quiz. Are you up to the challenge?

Most people who call themselves cat lovers think they know all there is to know about cats. But there is a ton of misinformation out there about cats. That's why we know that not everyone is going to get a perfect score on this quiz. You've got to be able to separate fact from the fiction, and not all of you will be able to do that. For instance, Isaac Newton did not invent the cat door, or the doggie door, for that matter. The pet door existed long before Sir Newton came along. If you believed this bit of fiction, you'll need to go back to the kitty drawing board and study up a bit before taking this quiz.

So, if you think you're ready, count your cat's toes (hint, hint...) and let's get started.
