Of course our pets are amazing. They love us unconditionally and provide much needed companionship. But our pets have some pretty spectacular features that make them even more amazing and can help keep us safe. For instance, a dog’s sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than ours, which is why they’re so adept at sniffing out danger. Dogs can “smell” a nearby storm, and some dogs have even been known to sniff out disease in the human body.
Dogs can also hear better than us. They can hear sounds over a wider range of frequencies and at a greater distance than humans can, and studies show that a dogs can locate the source of a sound in less than a second.
Dogs can sense our emotions. They know when we’re angry or sad and even afraid and can respond accordingly.
You may not believe it, but cats are amazingly agile. They can jump heights of five times their own height. And cats are fast. They can run up to 30 miles per hour — faster then Usain Bolt.
