We didn’t know that a mouse could shake 27 times per second and that a bear could only shake 4 times per second.  We didn’t know that our dogs could die if they didn’t shake when wet.  Do cats shake too? big surprise

Good question from Mrs. Schleyer’s class - I had to do some homework of my own in order to answer your question! I used to occasionally wash my cat, Mittens, although he really did not like it. I don’t remember Mittens shaking the water off, but then again, I usually had him wrapped in a big towel, both to dry him off and to keep him from clawing my arms!

So, I asked Dr. Keating from Trinity Pet Hospital in Carrollton, TX, and here is what he said:  “Yes, cats do shake when they get wet but they shake faster so it may not be as obvious as a dog!”
