Friday Cat Blogging
I couldn't resist posting this picture. The Count and I think Oreo's tongue is too big for her head. She'll often sit around with her tongue hanging out of her mouth, but it's not usually this far out. She looks really cute like this.
Yeah, I know... One... Two... Three... awwwww!!!!

Maybe her hair makes her do this...
I think she could be panting; does she gets overheated indoors??? She's so fluffy she almost looks like a Persian...

I think she might be part Angora. No, she's not panting and she's not overheated. She really just sits there with her tongue hanging out. It's funny. She usually does it after she grooms herself, but her tongue usually doesn't hang out as much as it did in that picture. She looks like she's giving us a raspberry. Heh.

Angora...yes...she looks like she's mixed with something.
Maybe even Maine coon cat...as they have long hair too and I think the Count said her mother was ferel????
BTW, can Maine coon cats mate with regular house cats??? Do they still live in the wild??? Maybe one wandered down to Mass. by the shore for a visit and became your cat's father...
I'm just thinking this because my brother lives upstate and they have a LOT of problem with these long hair ferel cats up there...so perhaps these cats could have been descended from housecats that mated with some sort of wilder cats and now have reverted to a semi-wild state.
Kind of like Call of the Wild with the dog Buck, but with cats. Actually why don't you do what Jack London did. Do a Call of the Wild story about a cat who goes wild and then another one about a wild cat (Maine Coon) that goes domestic...
Just like Jack London but with cats...
Could be interesting or funny depending upon how you handle it...

I had a cat who used to do that. People used to ask me what was wrong with her, lol.
Oreo is so CUTE!

She's cute, but she can be mean. She's sitting on my lap right now. If I try to move her or get up she'll hiss at me because I'm making her move. LOL

It's the "Call of the Wild" that's making her do this.

Ha ha!! The Call of the Wild. Since Oreo's been fixed, the only "wild" thing that interests her is the chicken I let her have from my lunch today. She used to like the "wild", but that always resulted in a litter of kittens. Thank God that is over with. Heh heh.
