Nose Prints

Humans are linked to things by finger prints. But not us kitties, not even our paw prints. What can give us away? Our noses.

A cat most distingushing feature is the unique pattern of ridges on the nose pad.

Wow, that is interesting. Plus my nose is different in that it isn't even all the same color. It has a ligher pink splotch that goes across the pad.
I sure hope the Feline Bureau of Investigation (FBI) doesn't have my nose on file.

Really? Damn! My OTW reads these blogs too, and now SHE'LL know too! I thought since Persephone and me are both black we're free and clear for the trouble-making, since she can't tell us apart when we run really fast! Now she just has to check nose prints!!!

Hope your weather is getting better!

I haf two dark splotches on my nose that Mom noticed got bigger, but the vet sez that's normal.
The Feline Bureau of Investigation sounds like US! I investigated a "bureau" fur my 6-word story, too!
PS somehow mine Mom doesn't need nose prints to know who done it.
