They drink water too, but can go on for longer periods without drinking water.They are sexually mature by the age of 6-12 months. They mate and breed frequently. A female may mate with multiple males during heat periods. The gestation period is about 2 months and the litter consists of 2-6 kittens.

So, what about the common belief that a black cat crossing your path is bad omen? Well, I have personally experienced a black cat crossing my path, but never suffered any losses !! However if any cat near me is behaving strangely or producing weird cries, I become a little cautious, not because I believe in some myth, but considering the powerful hearing and smelling senses of Cat, mentioned above.
