Meet Magilla Glub Glub! He is a little cutie who often forgets to put his tongue away.
Nathan G wrote via Cuteoverload: “We live in Kigali, Rwanda and he is a stray, a local vet found him as a few week old kitten and gave him to us. He was very tiny when we got him and he had to be fed from a syringe, but he’s on to solid food now and has porked up nicely. We really like his bug eyes and when his tongue hangs out.”
Cats can do a lot of quirky, funny things that we simply cannot do. Look at these lovely kitties. They can easily touch their nose with their tongue. I know it looks goofy, but kitties got skills! You can try it yourself and you know it’s hard.
These cats say so proudly “I can lick my nose, can you?”
Have you seen your cats sticking out their tongue, acting all cute? It is adorable and goofy to look at.
Why do cats stick out their tongue?
A Grooming Tool
Cats spend almost 1/3 of their life time grooming. They extend out their tongue to brush their coat and remove loose hair. Sometimes they stop for a moment while licking their fur and forget to pull their tongue back in. If the moment is right, it would be the purrfect time to snap a lolcat photo.
A Relaxed Cat
Cats sometimes have their tongue hang out while they are asleep. Their mouth is relaxed, slightly open and their tongue protrudes out, giving them a funny and silly look.
It is true that if cats constantly stick out their tongue, it is likely that they are not able to close their mouth due to a possible injury on the mouth or a breathing issue such as one that is caused by a respiratory problem. If that is the case, you should have your cat seen by a veterinarian.
