Why does my cat suck on blankets?

Cats suck on blankets as a form of self-soothing, similar to how some children suck their thumbs when they feel upset. If your pet is feeling anxious or stressed, it may start sucking on a blanket to calm down and feel better.


People used to think the Earth was the center of the cosmos.

Named after Claudius Ptolemy, the Ptolemaic Model proposed the Earth as the center of the universe. He developed the idea based on observations of how the stars moved across the sky during the seasons and concluded it was because they moved around the Earth.

This model of the universe was later supported by the Church, as it fits with their teachings of how God made Man as the center of the universe and Earth as their home. It wasn’t until Galileo and Copernicus used additional observations in the 16th century that people realized that Earth wasn’t the center of the universe.


“Open your eyes to the beauty around you, Open your mind to the wonders of life, Open your heart to those who love you, And always be true to yourself.”
