National Sense of Smell Day

Yes, it's actually a "day". It's an opportunity for teachers to promote learning about how the sense of smell works.


Did you know the domestic cat's sense of smell is about 14 times that of a human?


We kitties would like to take this opportunity to remind you humans to scoop out our litterboxes.
(Frequently, please! It smells much worse to us than it does to you!)

  3. SUPER pics of you, Allie. Swooooon - those WHISKERS!!!

    Mom knows our sense of smell is very very good. When Dad comes in the house, I sniff his shoes and I know exactly all the places he has gone.

  10. Where do you FIND all these days? It's true that we kitties have a much better sense of smell than humans! I wish they would realize that and act accordingly when it comes to stinky stuff.

  19. YEAH! Thank you for the PSA. Rumbledad is in charge of litter changes and Rumblemum is always having to either do it herself or remind him. Next time she's gonna show him THIS!
