Users of social networks and happy owners of cats with enviable regularity spread to the public cute and unusual videos, the characters of which are Pets standing on their hind legs.
Sometimes people say, that in vertical position their favourite Pets remind meerkats. Really, why is this happening, because the natural state of cats is to be on four legs? The behavior is dictated by the peculiarities of the body structure.
The Munchkins, for example, the center of gravity is different from cats of other breeds due to the short limbs. They can take a vertical position and to keep the balance. But the Scottish folds are the owners of the mutated gene of cartilage unable to support the weight of the ear in the standing position. It is important, that gene acts not only on ears.
