Do you ever…


…catch your cat in the middle of a huge yawn, and stick your finger in their mouth? So they get a huge surprise when the yawn is over and there’s suddenly a squishy thing in the way?

I have to admit I do it when I can. I’m such a terrible cat-mom! But it makes me giggle, I can’t help myself.

I used to do it to people too, but they get annoyed.


I bet you think about this the next time your kitty yawns in your face. 😀

  1. omg, I thought I was the only one who did this. I do it all the time! My kitties aren’t even surprised anymore, they just give me a look. People teeth are too scary, though, so I’ve never tried with a person.

    • Ha! My dog is so big, I’d fit my whole hand in there. I don’t think I’ll try it with her, though. She more of a nervous yawner, and I’m always careful that I don’t give her another thing to stress over. Ruining her lovely yawning experience might turn into her having to go upstairs and lie in her bed before she yawns 🙂

  2. The Big Mister and I, unfortunately started doing that years ago to each other, but finally had to call a truce. HOWEVER, he has started it again!

    I’ve seen cat teeth. I ain’t gonna put my finger in the Mouth of Pointy Doom! 😀

  3. Hey, you are cruel! No! I never do that ( although I did feel tempted couple of times). C’mon, I was told it’s even dangerous because so many muscles stretch at the same time that when the movement changes abruptly it can cause damage. Anyway, it can be just one of stupid scary stories.
    I bet your Lokii doesn’t yawn that often near you 🙂

  4. I do it too! Actually Dreifuss likes to.. love nibble. It’s the weirdest (and scariest thing). If he finds my fingers somewhere (like in bed) he’ll start nibbling, even working my finger back to his back teeth. He’s never once hurt me doing this and only does it with me. When I’m not thinking about how much it could hurt I’m sort of touched by his weird gesture.

    I like to grab my cats tongue too. If he’s liking my fingers or something I’ll snatch it. It’s damned funny.

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
