Neville sticks his tongue out more than any other cat I’ve had as a roommate. Usually, just the tip protrudes. Once in a while, it is more. I don’t know why he does it; I don’t know why any cat does it. Perhaps Nev is using it to test the temperature, his fur preventing him from attaining an accurate reading otherwise. Perhaps it’s a hint that he is hungry, and that I should feed him. Perhaps he is expressing his opinion of me, his surroundings, or life in general. Perhaps he thinks he’s a snake.
Whatever the cause, I find it amusing. I captured the moment in a slightly blurry photograph. I intend to show it to too many uninterested people.

It seems that Neville is not afraid to express his opinion.ReplyDelete
WE love it. MOARE!ReplyDelete
He's such a cutie! I've never had a cat that did this, my life is empty for it. :)ReplyDelete
That is too cute.ReplyDelete
Believe it or not, the world of science has actually investigated this urgent mystery.ReplyDelete
Their conclusion: FLOOFY DETECTIVES. (Yes, that's a quote.)
When I wrote that Neville may think he's a snake, that wasn't far off? (By the bye, 'Flehman' would be a good name for a cat...)Delete
That's so adorable. I don't know why it elicits such a response in humans, but it does. Nicki used to forget to put his tongue back in quite often, then fall asleep like that. Silly boy. I did read the the link Undine posted, and I guess it makes sense. It's as good an explanation as I've ever read, at any rate. :-)ReplyDelete
It's not just his tongue that made me laugh, but the expression on his face too.ReplyDelete
That “What are YOU laughing at?!” look.Delete
I agree with Kea, that really is adorable!!!ReplyDelete
We just love your blep, Nevsky!ReplyDelete
