or is there something ridiculously sweet concerning cats sticking their tongues out?

I LOVE it when mine ‘forget to put their tongues away’ grin

I also love it when they forget to close their mouths after a meow smile

Looking a bit daft 😛

I sadly don't have a cat so no pictures to add but it's definitely not just you! grin

Ah yes, "ham-tongue", as DD christened it.

It's ridiculous and then when you try and stifle your giggles, they look at you as if you're the crazy one.

Judith Kerr captured it perfectly in the "Mog the Forgetful Cat" books.

Kloppy just looks glaikit when he does it confused I do giggle to myself though when I stroke his little head a bit too hard and his ear goes inside out 🤭

Kloppy just looks glaikit when he does it
Don't believe you - I bet he's cute as a wee button grin.

It is literally one of my favourite things in the world when my cat does this! Sadly no pics I am not quick enough grin

Another one for MN😻

@newnamenewposts I love their eyes

newnamenewposts Sun 15-Nov-20 00:46:35

@jennie0412 thank you. Yes he has the most stunning eyes even though he can be a little tinker at times.

Super cute !!

I agree! I had the pleasure of meeting this fella earlier in the year.

He's a sweetie - looks as if he'd been in the wars though?

Neither of mine do the tongue sticking out thing, but Boycat tends to raise a bit of his upper lip when he's blissed out & purring, showing just one fang. I find that adorably cute.

Grumpyoldpersonwithcats he'd been under CP care for a while and had surgery on his ear. Anyway, it was a very happy ending as his fosterer couldn't give him back after lockdown 1. I recently saw a photo of him and he looks better with two furry ears. Fabulous cat though.

And another 😍

Star doing her thing. She'd be highly offended if she knew her photo was on the internet. Is this the cat equivalent of the Daily Mail sidebar of shame?

Quite possibly. grin

Sybil does this as well.

They do look glaikit grin

If anyone follows 'The Big Cat Sanctuary' on Facebook, it's known as Tongue-out Tuesday on there 😹

Here is one from my previous cat Mia.
