The of the cat is about 5 centimetres (2.0 inches) long, and weighs 25–30 g (0.88–1.06 oz). If a typical cat is taken to be 60 cm (24 in) long with a weight of 3.3 kg (7.3 lb), then the brain would be at 0.91% of its total body mass, compared to 2.33% of total body mass in the average . Within the proposed by Jerison in 1973, values above 1 are classified big brained, while values lower than 1 are small brained. The domestic cat is attributed a value of between 1–1.71 relative to human value that is 7.44–7.8. The largest brains in the cat kingdom are those of the , of which the largest relative brain size within the is the . It is debated whether there exists a causal relationship between brain size and intelligence in . Correlations have been shown between these factors in a number of experiments. However, . Most experiments involving the relevance of brain size to intelligence hinge on the assumption that complex behavior requires a complex (and therefore intelligent) brain; however, this connection has not been consistently demonstrated.

Cats are slender and flexible creatures that tend to fit into very small or tight spaces. If you've owned any cats in your life then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Domestic cats do come in a variety of sizes and may weigh anywhere from 4 to 30lbs when fully grown. For these math problems we are going to use an average sized domestic cat which weighs in at around 5.5lbs. Assuming a biological density of 66.3 lbs/ft3 the average domestic cat would have a volume of about 0.083 ft3.

Did you know that 90% of the world's freight is delivered using shipping containers? That's a lot of shipping containers! Although shipping containers come in a variety of sizes, the most common one by far is the Standard Forty-Foot Shipping Container (FEU). Inside a typical 40ft shipping container you will find a maximum capacity of 2261 cubic feet. To figure out the number of cats that would fit inside we first have to divide the volume of the shipping container by the volume of a cat. So 2261 divided by 0.083 is 27,241. Next we multiply this by the cat packing ratio to get the result. So 27241 x 0.5 = 13,620 (rounding down). Therefore 13,620 average domestic cats will fit inside a Standard Forty-Foot Shipping Container.
