Poor little fellow.


#3

Doesn’t his tongue ever dry out?


#4

Hey! I have one of those!


#5

A cat? A fireplace?

A. . . tongue?


#6

Has that cat been drinking superglue again?


#7

Best part – 34:28


#8

Yeah, what’s the deal? Is he okay?


#9

My guess is that he has some sort of chronic breath obstruction. Would explain the snortling noises and the need to breathe through his mouth. Poor thing.


#10

Some cats stick their tongue out when they’re feeling very satisfied. I wouldn’t be alarmed.


#11

Isn’t it a loop? He probably puts his tonge back in his mouth after a few minutes IRL.

EDIT: whoah, it’s not a loop.


#12

From the Repository of All Human Knowledge…

Like the more famous Grumpy Cat.


#13

Dude, its, like, totally not a loop!


#14

Oh. Wait. I didn’t realize it was a fireplace.


#15

It is a several different cuts spliced together, though. If you watch for a while you can catch it.


#16

Bah, humbug.


(That is one hell of a cute cat, though.)

#17

Yeah, not a loop or robot. One real content cat enjoying the radiant heat from a gas fired… erm , fire.


#18

Turn him upside down and …

well, never mind


#19

They need to be together!


#20

She’s actually a dwarf. She has no teeth and is polydactyl (22 toes total). Her tongue hangs out all the time because she’s got a radically underdeveloped lower jaw, but she eats just fine, if a bit sloppily. She’s otherwise healthy, and behaviorally is just a happy little stubby-legged cat.

She’s not a good jumper, but is an excellent waddler and (with 22 claws) climber.

One of our vets had an office cat that had the sort of breathing obstruction you’re thinking of - though not a Persian, his face was “smushed” so his nose wasn’t quite set up right. His name was Smeegol, because he had a puffball toy that he was utterly obsessed with…he’d carry it around constantly, and he did would make loud, Gollum-like wheezes through it. But, again: active, happy, cared for.

Such cats require extra, and not inexpensive, care - Smeegol needed regular eyedrops and special food because of nutrient malabsorption issues - and I’m always happy to see them in good homes with people willing to put in the extra effort and expense.
