Top 10 Cats in the Sunshine

Are you having trouble with cats coming into your lawn and even your home? Well, I have been looking around the internet at images of cats (an endless task in itself) and it seems that cats can be struck down and incapacitated by simple sunshine! Some seem to enjoy it and other seem to live in fear of it. And so, on this rather none sunny Caturday here in Wales, UK  I have decided to bring you ten of the very best images of cats enjoying the sunshine and trying to avoid it…

10 – This lot hate the sunshine and have sadly become trapped here!

FACT: The sun is said to contain about 99.85% of all the mass in the solar system! I have no idea what that means, but it sounds heavy!

9 – But some seem to seek out even the tiniest bits of sunshine and enjoy it!

FACT: Our Sun is classified as a G2 dwarf due to its size, heat, and chemical makeup. Apparently it has an averaged surface temperature of about 5,000-6,000 Kelvin! …Who is this Kelvin guy, and how does he know how hot the sun is?!?

8 – This poor cat was incapacitated while just trying to get home!

FACT: Based on the average life of a G2 star, the present age of our own sun is said to be about 4.6 billion years. This means we are just about halfway through its lifetime already!

7 – Now that is what I call pure enjoyment!

FACT: Just how big is out the sun? Well let me put it this way: Approximately 109 of our planet Earth would fit on the surface of the sun, and more than one million would fit inside it! So very, very big indeed.

6 – No room for any more it seems.

FACT: Approximately every 11 years or so the sun reverses its overall magnetic polarity so that it’s north magnetic pole will suddenly become the south pole, and vice versa! That sounds quite scary if you ask me.

5 – “You humans want to go outside? Why, when the sunshine is in here?!?”

FACT: If you weigh about 150 pounds here on Earth, you would weigh about 4,200 pounds on the sun! This is because the sun’s gravity is 28 times that of Earth! You might need some sun cream on before you go.

4 – This single beam of sunshine has paralysed 5 cats!!!

FACT: Indo-European, Meso-American and Egyptian cultures all had sun-worship religions. But to add to this in ancient Egypt, the sun god Ra was considered to be a member of the high gods. He achieved the highest status because he was believed to have created himself and eight other gods!

2 – Trapped! Poor things, hold on in there just a few hours more until sundown!!!

FACT: Here is a strange one for you, scientists have discovered that both male and female mummies had tattoos which symbolizing sun worship! I bet it hurt like anything back then to get a tattoo done.

FACT: The Greek philosopher Aristarchus was a clever old chap, as it was him who was credited as being the first person to claim that the Earth orbited the sun! Well done Sherlock.
