    I taught my cat to sniff anything I put in front of his nose.

    Amazing huh?

    It started with my finger, then moved to a pencil, now he'll sniff my lighter, inhaler, and even my shoe!

    And you thought your threads were worthless.

    Damn I hope Julie is okay. It's not like her to skip out on a cat thread. [​IMG] Brad, I know you're joking here, but put anything up to a dog or cats nose and it will sniff it. TF

    [sarcasm]Trey, thanks for the head's up![/sarcasm] [​IMG]
    I know I was joking. I like to show that "trick" to visitors of my home. They usually just stare at me, but at least I laugh.
    Sometimes you have to amuse yourself, even at the expense of your pets.

    "kitty biscuits" - In our house we call them "tootsie rolls". If they're in kitty litter then they're called "almond roca"...

    Well to answer the elusive "where was my finger" question, I'll give it shot:

    It was in my mom's... I mean my... Well, actually, it was in my wife's... No no no no that's not it, where was it? (thinking)... hmmm, Oh yeah! It was in...

    a can a tuna. how original is that?

    "it was in my mom's...", oh this is going to be sick....
    "it was in my wife's...", oh this is going to be good....
    "Oh yeah, it was in...", wow, I'm disappointed.[​IMG]

    Hey Julie, if I did that with my tarantulas, I think they would just crawl right in... Knowing they like moist dark places, your mouth is a perfect cubby hole... Now that would be a conversation piece in a party! Actually, I saw a Guiness Book of World Records on TV and somebody actually did just that... Of course the audience was all going nutso over it while I was going "awwwwww,how cute" [​IMG]

    Brad, I call it that and my wife laughs about it then says I'm a pervert.
    Being called a pervert by your wife while she's smiling is very nice...[​IMG]

    Well, since people are jumping on the cat sniffing thing I thought I would pose this question. I have a cat who, after sniffing sometimes, will open his mouth and breathe through his mouth for a couple of seconds. What the heck is he doing? Does he not like the smell? If he doesn't like the smell, why was he so intent on sniffing for such a long period of time before opening his mouth and breathing through it?

    Getting a cat to sniff just about anything is tantamount to teaching a fish to swim. I've never known a cat not to want to check out the smells around him or her.

    Tommy - cats have smell receptors in their mouths as well as their noses, so when they really want to get a good whiff of something (say it's a weak scent) they'll open their mouths and "sniff" it that way.

    My tiger kitty Misha who loves to sniff me does that sometimes.

    I had a fish that could swim once. Then it learned to jump, unfortunatly it never learned to crawl back up into the tank.

    We had a daft (or should I say normal?) cat once which when you tickled a particular point on her back, would lick uncontrollably. Most amusing! Also an easy way to make her take tablets [​IMG]

    My dog also has what we call a "Tongue Button" on his hind quarters (no, not there, you pervs!)

    If you scratch the haunchs beside his tail, he licks uncontrollably. If you keep it up, he will start chewing on his foot. As soon as you stop, he stops. It's quite funny.
