Whether you love cats or not, you can’t deny that they have some sort of mystical appeal to them. It’s not just in the way their eyes seem to be gazing right into your soul. And it’s not their little inexplicable quirks, either. They’re just, for lack of a better term, oddities. Adorable, interesting oddities.
Want a better understanding of cats? Keep right on reading because we’ve got a bunch of feline fun facts that might just make you love (or fear) them even more.
1. When cats "smile" they're tasting the air though a special breathing technique. They can taste your fear!
2. Despite that, they can't taste sweets.
3. Cats are able to hear and vocalize more sounds than dogs. In fact, they can recognize their human’s voice, but they’re usually too cool to care.
4. Here's a sinister one. Cats can imitate the sound of a human baby when they need food. They know that humans will instinctually react to this. Sneaky, huh?
5. Cats land on their feet so well that some of them have been known to survive falling onto concrete from a height of 320 meters!

Japanese Restaurant Serves Disturbing Meal of Live Frog Sashimi
Yes, it’s a live frog sushi – with a twist of lemon.
Japanese cuisine is best known for its delicious ramen, sumptuous sushi, and other delectable seafood dishes. But if you tend to veer off the usual meal offerings, then this area in Tokyo may just be the answer to your eclectic palate.
"Memory Lane", which is located in the district of Shinjuku in Tokyo, is famed for restaurants serving exotic dishes. The area is popular among tourists and Japanese alike with a penchant for unusual dishes. The restaurants offer bizarre dishes ranging from soft-shelled turtles to snake liquor.
One weird dish, though, has sparked online interest - bullfrog sashimi. In a video circulating online, one restaurant in Memory Lane was shown serving bullfrog sashimi by beheading and skinning the frog, removing its innards, chopping it up, and then serving it to customers on ice with soy sauce and a slice of lemon.Although the frog died immediately after it was stabbed, it can still be seen twitching around the plate due to muscle contraction. Viewers were quick to express disgust over the eclectic dish, saying the way the dish was prepared was cruel.
Watch how the frog sashimi was prepared in the video below. A word of caution, though - it is not for the faint-hearted....
