Generally speaking, people either love cats or they don't.

There are folks like Sigmund Freud who once said "Time spent with cats is never wasted."

And there are people like American author and humourist Garrison Keillor who said "Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose."

Ouch.

Well, no matter how you feel about cats, they're definitely unique creatures.

The guys at ASAP Science - Canadians Gregory Brown and Mitchell Moffit - have a new video explaining the science of cats.

They cover a lot in a few minutes - how much cats actually sleep, why they rub against you, why they lift their tail when you pet them, what catnip does to them and more.

Check it out at the top.
