The Code of Hammurabi by HammurabiThe Code of Hammurabi is a well-preserved ancient law code, created circa 1760 BC in ancient Babylon. It was enacted by the sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi. The stele containing the Code of Hammurabi was discovered in 1901 by the Egyptologist Gustav Jequier, a member of the expedition headed by Jacques de Morgan. The stele was discovered in what is now Khuzestan, Iran (ancient Susa, Elam), where it had been taken as plunder by the Elamite king Shutruk-Nahhunte in the 12th century BC. It is currently on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Do Cats Have Belly Buttons?
Do Kittens Have Belly Buttons?
It's a reasonable question given the fact that cats don't have obvious "innies" or "outies" like people do. The short answer is yes, cats have belly buttons. The belly button, also called a navel -- or umbilicus, if you want to get truly technical -- is present in all mammals. Cats are mammals, so cats have belly buttons. As with everything anatomical, it had a purpose.
What an interesting question! Their cats and their belly buttons — two things that just thought of were enough to make people laugh. But a question of being put upon always has a reason and needs an answer. So let me answer briefly: Cats really have belly buttons. In terms of anatomy, the belly button , also called a navel — or umbilicus is present in all mammals. Cats are a mammal and so obviously cats have belly buttons. They are located in the middle of the abdomen and are about 5 mm wide.

Kittens are cute enough, but the thought of kitten belly buttons brings on cuteness overload. Maybe you haven't had so much time on your hands that your mind has wandered to pondering whether or not kittens have belly buttons, but just in case you need to know: they actually do. Any mammal, including cats, have a scar where their umbilical cords once were, but rather than being called scars, these permanent marks are known as navels or belly buttons. When a baby kitten is still inside her mommy, she gets her oxygen, blood and nutrients just like a human baby does: through her umbilical cord. When the kitten is born and no longer needs the umbilical cord for survival, Mama Cat chews it off, tying off the blood vessels and eliminating the need to knot the cord or otherwise close it off.
This is mysterious, isn't it? I have a 1. But if I had seen these kittens when they were born, I would have seen the umbilical cord. Kittens in the womb get their nutrients from their mothers the same way we do, through an umbilical cord that's attached to the placenta on one end and the belly of the fetus on the other. All mammals have this system except for the marsupials like kangaroos and opossums and the two egg-laying mammals platypus and echidna.
Yes, they do, all mammals have belly buttons also known as a navel or umbilicus. The belly button can be difficult to find under their thick layer of fur, I have three cats, and only one has an easily visible belly button. During pregnancy, the placenta attaches to the uterine wall of the pregnant cat queen. The umbilical cord is attached to both the queen and the fetus, which provides the unborn kitten with water, nutrients, and oxygen from the mother while removing away fetal waste and carbon dioxide. Each fetus has its own placenta and umbilical cord. So, if there are four fetuses, there will be four placentas, the only exception to this rule is if two of the fetuses are identical twins, in which case they will share a placenta. At this point, the kitten is still attached to the placenta and may still be receiving blood and oxygen.
