Do you know what smell cats hate the most? Take a guess. Is it their own urine, or is it…sour milk? Wrong! Cats are not too fond of citrus smells either. In fact, they will usually avoid anything with an acidic scent. This includes oranges and lemons as well as vinegar and other fruits that have tart flavors to them. This blog post discusses how to keep your cat away from items that they don’t like by using scents such as peppermint oil, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon grass and more!
Cats are sensitive to smells
Cats have a powerful sense of smell that can detect even the slightest whiff.
Cats seem to be obsessed with smells and their reactions reveal much about how they perceive them. Cats are able to take in scents through their noses, which makes up two-thirds of their scent receptors; however, it is still unclear as to whether or not cats actually enjoy smelling things because they do so at varying rates depending on what’s going on around them
They can detect smells that humans cannot smell
Cats have an exceptional sense of smell that is not comparable to any other animal on the planet. Scientists believe this has something to do with a gene mutation from their common ancestor, which allows them to detect smells at concentrations up 100 million times lower than humans can!
Cats are very sensitive creatures and they use scent as one way of understanding what’s going around them; when these scents become too concentrated for us (which would be equivalent in intensity or concentration) we tend lose our ability to identify it- but cats don’t. Cats also make great companions because just like dogs, they’re always interested in playing games such as fetch- so you’ll never get bored either!
