Cats aren’t interested in sweet stuff because of a defect in the gene that codes for part of the mammalian sweet taste receptor. The receptor contains two protein subunits, T1R2 and T1R3, which are each coded for by a separate gene. The defect occurs on the T1R2 protein in domestic cats, as well as in cheetahs and tigers.
HI!!! My name is Samantha (Sam works better though). I'm 21 and also a poor college student who is attempting to get a language of arts teaching degree. I love going to concerts and I'm a HUGE bookworm. If I could go to Hogwarts and live in Disneyland it would make me the happiest little star in the sky! Ed Sheeran is my current musical obsession and I am a Swiftie. I'm proud Hooker from the Once fandom. I have a very strong passion for anything Disney/ PIXAR related. I love meeting new people and helping out when I can so please ask me questions!
