My little black cat has the pinkest tongue - love watching him wash himself.It's like a lovely, tiny slice of vair naice ham.
My big bruiser is a polydactyl and I love his massive bear paws and their delicious stripes.
Only one thing per cat is permitted wink.

Lovely thread!

Angry cat - despite his fury at the world for making him a domestic cat rather than a lion, he gets very soppy and purry whenever his upper back is scratched and starts sticking his tongue in and out very quickly. Sometimes he forgets to put it back in again when the scratching is done (but don't tell him, he would be mortified)

Simple cat - the way, when you pick him up, he puts both his paws around your neck and gives you a very enthusiastic, and often rather slobbery, head butt

So hard to choose just one but both of these melt my heart!

RescueCatHugeTabby's utter tolerance of DD and DS. He came last year when they were 2 and 3 and he has never bitten, scratched or shown any aggression to them. In spite of the cuddles, cars driven on his back, helicopters being landed on him and a game of jumping over him as he lays down. He doesn't move, he doesn't care, he just likes their company even though they are quite mad. I love that streak of calm acceptance in him.

RescueCatTinyTortie came a fortnight ago and I love her feisty attitude in a kitten sized body. She is totally unafraid of the kids, of RescueCat1 and the one time Cat1 tried a playful pounce she swore so much the air turned blue and he's had a respectful distance since. Love it.

BeastCat - the way he sticks his tongue out at you, just a little bit. Its adorable

SoppyCat - The way he jumps onto the bath in the morning when i'm in the loo and demands i give him a kiss

My 13 y/o black and white cat is the friendliest cat in cat-dom.

If we have a visitor ... he is there!

If we have someone in to fix the boiler ... he is there!

If my cleaner comes very Thursday ... he is there!

If I put my arse on the sofa (rarely) he is there! cuddling up for a stroke.If

If I come home from a day at work he is out in the front garden waiting.

If I come home from 2 weeks holiday and have left him in the care of a pet sitter he is OUTRAGED and yowls a LOT!

He is the most sociable cat that ever did live. Infact, he is a dog in cat's clothing.

I love that minor monstercat sits on the changing table so ds can kick at her while I change him. She just purrs.
Major monstercat must drink from the bath tap every time anyone uses the loo

The way my Bengal kittens come tearing into the bathroom whenever someone goes in so they can jump on the loo seat and watch the flush.

The look of utter contempt on the Siamese face when they do the above.

The way my ASBO wrestles with the kittens and gets them in a simultaneous headlock but grooms each of them in turn when they've conked out.

The zen-like calm and kindness of our ancient Main Coon

I love the way my boy "talks."
When he's being ignored he sometimes comes out with "oh nooooo! Noooooo!" Cheers me right up.

Playing kitty fishing. I lie in bed and throw out a long ribbon whilst holding onto one end and kitty will leap up from out of no-where and roll around licking and biting the ribbon every time. Then she'll jump up, run off and hide then wait for you to throw the line out again.

I love sneaking up on bootsycat when he's all curled up and snoring away on dd's bed and he chirps while I cover him in kisses

piratecat Thu 11-Apr-13 09:07:56

his fangs.

black cat, with fangs too big. bless. the vet said he'd grow into them, but he hasn't.

soooo cute!

thebestpossibletaste Thu 11-Apr-13 21:12:03

I love it when my Siamese talks to me and I love the way the kitten cuddles with the dog.

bootsycollins Thu 11-Apr-13 21:22:19

I'm away for the week and I'm really missing my dc (darling cat) sad

Having a lovely time but it'll be sooooo good to be reunited, I miss his pink little nose.

piratecat Fri 12-Apr-13 08:26:51

a couple i knew were away once and rang their cat at home and left a message on the answering machine. this was pre dc.grin

I have four kittens aged two weeks (Ragdoll crosses) who I got after a friend's cat was stolen six months ago, and was dumped whilst in labour in a bin bag. It was found dead with one other dead kitten, they got taken to the vet, vet recognised the cat and contacted my friend but my friend couldn't care for the kittens and I volunteered.

Tiffin- the way she kind of flop crawls. She tries to push herself up but doesn't quite manage to do it fully and 'walls' even though her stomach is still on the ground. And then she kind of stretches out her front to walk but her back paws make tiny steps so it doesn't work very well. She'll. probably get there in a week and a bit.

Gracie- she has the pinkest little nose ever. It's very noticeable, even comparing her with the others. An adorable, pale pink. She kind of looks at you pathetically, with a slightly twitchy little pink nose which I kind of have my eyes drawn too all the time.

Jessie- her purr. She is the first one! And it's so adorable. I lift her up and put her in my lap and stroke her and she kind of makes a weird purring noise (almost a hiss but it's a purr) and she does it when I rub her stomach too.

Samba- he 'cries' for food. It's adorable (and he's not upset, just...demanding). He makes a cute kitten version of a cawing bird! It's lovely. It sounds a bit like this but he only does it when we stop the feed of formula.

Walk, not walls.

My big fat ginger and white cat stands up on the bench outside the living room window when he wants to come indoors. Then when I open the door, he refuses to come in and I have to go to the bench and carry him in,

Sad and lazy, but very sweet.

nipersvest Fri 12-Apr-13 17:22:19

he doesn't meow, he quacks, and when he runs he runs like a rabbit.

MrsSchadenfreude Fri 12-Apr-13 19:49:38

I love the way that Big Pussy Boy sleeps near my feet at night, with one giant paw on my leg or foot. If I roll over, there is frantic patting until he finds me again, then a contented sigh as he goes back to sleep with his paw on me.

Tiny Kitten's permanent expression of outrage. (Big Pussy is none too bright and looks permanently bewildered.)

TheNebulousBoojum Fri 12-Apr-13 20:23:50

The tiny, whistling snore.
Sometimes I walk into the room and don't know where she is, and then I listen and...then .....(snore) grin

JaffaCakesAreCAKES Fri 12-Apr-13 20:30:29

His huge shovel-like paws

tigerdriverII Fri 12-Apr-13 20:36:50

I have a boy and girl, litter mates, never been separated.

I love the way they both roll over and have to be tickled when they come in from their adventures.

I love the way my girl grooms her brother.

I don't love the way he beats her up!

I don't love the presents they bring (rabbit's eyeball on the doorstep, anyone).

They are totally adorable though.

juneybean Fri 12-Apr-13 20:39:10

When she comes in at 5am after her night on the tiles and climbs into bed with me.

something2say Sun 14-Apr-13 22:02:28

We have a routine when I get in from work--when I can be bothered-- whereby he lies down on his rum wagging his tail and turning this way and that to see where I am. I meanwhile hide really obviously and stalk him knowing full well he can see me. I tip toe around the corners and so on and then I pounce on him and he runs about waiting for me to catch him and give him a massive cuddle which he pretends he doesn't like but secretly does.

cozietoesie Sun 14-Apr-13 22:29:16

The 'whuffles' Seniorboy makes when he's dreaming in bed with me. A cat actually dreaming is such a signal of trust that it tickles me every time.

My boy cat fetches sticks, he doesn't drop them at my feet though, you have to wrestle him for it!
