Crush Your Cat's Head Friday


Self inflicted crush.

My cat has a little siamese in him, and I can totally see the resemblence in this picture.

I've been noticing all week how ROUND he always is, whenever he's curled up. This is a perfect example. ;)

Cute cat. Did you know that Yoshi could crush it's own head on a Friday or was this a surprise..

I LOVE when cats sleep in a ball like that. They're so cuddly!

Minerva said...

Just like you...late thirties (later than you) cat mad, single and with breast cancer...

Hi there...

Yoshi looks extra soft and warm and fuzzy in this pic.

Kranki, I am so getting a cat. I just can't handle all these fabulous pictures and not have a cat of my own whose head I can crush (gently - nothing PETA-worrisome!)

She is just trying to hide her embaressment. My cats try that all the time, doesnt help.

Jeans said...

I want to blow hot air on her tummy!
What a cute minou!

Ah, it's happened. We learn to treat ourselves as others treat us. Poor Yoshi, crushing her very own head.

Susie said...

Does Yoshi do this? Thought you two might enjoy :)

Squirl said...

Wow is Yoshi talented. She decorates the Christmas tree and crushes her own head. What's next?

That is one happy loved cutey pie of a cat. Hey - how's the jewelry making idea coming along

AWWWWWWW! When Oscar does that he doesn't get any rest... I attack him with kisses and rubs and cuddles. He totally loves it.

The cat biography was very cute!
Now I am commenting on a few previous posts, and I could be to late. I know the Starbucks cards would be welcomed. I know our nurses our thrilled with any gift be it food, or drinks any token of appreciation.
I also cried when I read your post regarding the young women with the infant. Despite the fact I see sick people every day-nothing breaks my heart more then a trip to the oncology floor. The worst for me are the children I have been known to hide in a closet for a good cry!
I think of you daily Stacey!

I just love it when cats put their paws over their eyes.

"I'm blocking it all out".

Very sweet.

Thanks for participating without prompting Yoshi!!

Divine Calm said...

That is the cutest thing ever!

LadyBug said...

Awwww, what a sweet pic!

kalki said...

I love Yoshi.

Yoshi is now self crushing?
How utterly convenient for you! Now if you could just get her to clean her own litter box, you'd be way ahead of the game.

eclectic said...

*heh* Proving that crushing is critical to the emotional health of domestic cats.

ern-I think the roundness is very cute. I call her The Prawn when she sleeps like this.

happyandblue2-this was not a surprise. She has always been a self crusher. In fact she taught me all I know.

HDL-don't you just want to stuff your head right in the middle of them?

minerva-OH MAN! Another one!?! I am sorry to hear you are going though the same thing. But I am glad you stopped by to say hi. I'll come by your blog soon.

closet m-she is extra cute but her breath still strips paint.

dima-I am sure you will find the perfect cat for you who will love the crushing.

jessica rabbit- I do notice she totally avoids my eyes when curled up. Maybe shame is the reason. I thought she was just trying for some privacy.

jeans-I am gonna blow on her tummy the next time she does this from you.

susie-alas it has come to that. I am so ashamed. I love that sink site. So far Yoshi has not found joy in sinks. I don't know why.

squirl-if she could do laundry I would weep from joy.

easty-you will have to forgive my chemo forgetfulness but I can't remember what jewellery thing you are talking about. Sorry! ;-(

spoonleg-I can totally understand that. I am the same way with Yoshi.

SWLF-Nikki! Hi! I hope the techs enjoy their coffees. And I have seen that mother a couple more times at the clinic and she seems to be doing ok but it is still very sad. Kids have their own hospital to be treated at and I don't see any at my clinic thankfully as that would put me over the edge. I am so glad to see you here.

leafgirl77-there was no prompting for this photo and I know y'all don't believe me but she really loves being crushed. She purrs. HONESTLY!

divinecalm-can you see why it is so hard not to squeeze her from cuteness.

ladybug-she looks so small on the bed. Aw!

kalki-Yoshi loves you.

bucky-you just have no idea. However I really cannot complain as she is a tiny cat and has tiny poops. When I cat-sit my neighbour's fatties I almost faint when I clean their box. Like night and day difference. I have it easy. Was that TMI?

eclectic-I cannot speak for other cats but for Yoshi a regular crushing is imperitive!
