Welcome to the Kids section of Wicklow SPCA! This section will offer you some interesting facts about animals!

Cool cat facts!

Did you know a domestic cat can sleep for up to 14 hours a day?!

Did you know cats can make over 100 vocal sounds, while dogs can only make 10!

Amazingly a cat uses whiskers to determine if a space is too small to squeeze through. The whiskers act as antennae, helping the animal to judge the precise width of any passage.

Just like fingerprints, every cats nose pad is different!



Cool dog facts!

Dogs can be trained to detect upcoming epileptic seizures! Wow!

Dalmatian puppies do not have any spots on them when they are born. They actually develop them as they get older!

There is a doggy disco held in Italy every year where owners can dance with their dogs.

Nose prints are used to identify dogs, much like humans use fingerprints!



Cool horse facts!

There are no two zebras who have stripes that are exactly the same!

If a horse rests its head on your shoulder, it means the horse trusts you! Careful though! Horse are very big and extremely strong!

It's not only zebra's fur that is striped, their skin is also striped!!

There are approximately 2,000,000 horses in Ireland!!
