The Nervous System

     What makes a cat want to hunt birds? Why does a cat recognize the sound of the can opener? How does a cat think? How do reflexes work? These and many other questions are answered by the intricate feline nervous system. It is the control panel for every sense and body system. The central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord. The brain is the computer that commands the other parts of the body. Cerebral spinal fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord and acts as a shock absorber. It helps prevent concussions when the head is traumatized.
     There are five primary senses: vision, hearing, touch, smell and taste. There are additional body monitoring sensors for balance, temperature, muscle tension and blood oxygen level. There are millions of stimuli bombarding the nervous system every second. The able central nervous system makes sense of it all and preserves and protects each animal, so it is important that it functions properly. Damage or disease affecting the nervous system can have far reaching implications.
