Sugar and spices and everything we like to eat does not touch any interest for cats, these pets only care about the meat you use to provide energy and meat for her either a bird or a mouse what you see crosses in front of them as scientists have discovered that cats do not have the ability to taste candy on Unlike other mammals

Animal tongue vs human tongue

Animal tongues contain protein receptors on the surface of cells that form the tongue, which bind them to the material that touches the tongue, and when touched by a substance, it sends a signal to the brain for interpretation.

Humans have 5 senses or sensors that transmit signals to the brain to feel. When we want to taste candy, two different types of protein cells on the tongue are activated: Tas1r2 and Tas1r3.

When a person eats a candy, the signal is released to the brain as a high source of carbohydrates, but cat bodies belong to carnivores.

The DNA of cats and their breeds contains only one Tas1r2 gene, which alone cannot be called a gene. It is not enough for cats to taste sugars or at least they do not recognize sugars as we do.

Scientists know that even though cats cannot taste sugars, they can taste other things that we cannot realize. Cats can feel the amino acids found in red meat, chicken, and even fish, a way that makes them feel what you eat.

Scientists say that cats are the only mammals that do not have genes to identify sugars and that their livers do not contain digestive enzymes for this type of food, so it is better for everyone who loves cats to avoid feeding them a lot of carbohydrates
