Sloth

Everyone knows what a sloth is,  most teenagers compare themselves to a sloth because they sleep a lot and like to just hang out. They sleep for 10 hours in a day, most people thought 15 to 20 hours in a day. The sloth is an arboreal animal, in other words, most of his day is spent in a tree. A sloth only climbs down the tree to use the restroom. There are two types of sloths, two toed and three toed sloths. Their appearance are the same, but the two toed sloths grow bigger in size. A sloth moves 2 meters per minute on ground, but in the trees the move 3 meters per minute. The fastest they go is 4 meters per minute when they are being chased by a predator. On the other hand, they can protect themselves with their sharp claws, biting, and their loud shriek. Last interesting fact, is they only eat leaves which does not give them the energy and nutrients they need. Which is why the move slowly, to save the energy they have.

Cats

What are your thoughts about cats? Cats are loveable creatures that love to cuddle and take naps all day long. They have soft and fluffy fur. If someone was down there cat can comfort them by allowing them to pet their soft, fluffy fur. The best part about having a cat as a pet, is the fact that cats are potty trained! Which is pretty great so you don't have to clean up messes. On the other hand, cats can make hairballs if you do not keep their fur short and brushed. Some cats do not enjoy being brushed, so try giving them a treat if they allow you to brush them. Doing this will allow you to brush them on a regular basis. Also, most people are against the fact people remove cats nails. If you think about it though, cats still get in the habit of scratching even without claws, it just won't tear your furniture up. So if you have young ones and don't want the cat to claw them, then try it. Most people believe it can cause a cat to become depressed and they cat protect themselves in the wild life without them. If you make sure your cat stays inside you won't have to worry about them protecting themselves from other creatures. Anyways, cats are really cool pets and are the best cuddly friend you could ever ask for!

They make sure their toilet area is away from where they eat and lie down. Also, pigs have a great sense of smell. Pigs are social animals like cows. They enjoy lying down next to each other and love close contact.
