Little Book of Cat Facts.

Much like everyone else, I was fairly depressed when reading this book. Because of this, I didn't enjoy reading it very much. What I did enjoy was the page of Cat facts (39). So I decided to make a similar entry for one of my favorite animals.

The First Chupacabra attacks reported were in 1995 in Puerto Rico where eight sheep were discovered dead with three holes in their chest and drained completely of blood.

The Chupacabra is indigenous to Spanish speaking countries, as well as the south west United States.

El Chupacabra translated to English literally means “goat sucker”

The above fact could be misinterpreted as someone who is sexually attracted to goats.

Both the X-Files, and Dexter's Laboratory have episodes dedicated entirely to the Chupacabra.

If you see a Chupacabra, its probably just a coyote with a severe case of mange. If not, report it to your local authorities at once.

Mange. Mange.

A Chupacabra's memory can last as long as sixteen hours-exceeding even that of monkeys and orangutans.


  1. This is the best post I've read so far, especially that last bit blantantly ripping off Caspers about Chupacabras and their memory exceeding that of monkeys and orangutans. This satirical piece was really amusing!I liked how at first the facts seemed embedded in truth and then you get to end, where it talks about reporting to the authorities if you see one and talking about their memories as if it has been measured, and you realized this has gone off into the absurd. In any case, why do you think Caspers' uses these facts? Do they add anything more to what she says?

  2. I think Caspers put these facts in her book to try and make a connection between humans and animals. How pigeons and humans both use upper and lower eyelids to blink, or that cats have a third eyelid. The line that stuck out a lot for me was right after she puts the facts about the cat's eyelids, "I stare at the wall and blink like a pigeon. No haw."
