Blinks and Bonks

Most everyone knows that we kitties will bonk heads to show affection. But did you also know that we 'blink' to show affection? It is a subtle sign with both eyes half way closed. Do you do this to your beans?
Not sure if Ducky is blinking or just falling asleep here!

Mum came home early from work today and climbed right back into bed. Ducky jumped up to sit on her and purr. She sounds like she has lots of rocks in her voice, lots of sneezy's, blowing stuff out of her nose. She got up long enough to eat a bit and is ready to head back to the sleepy spot again.

Just so you know mum is furry safe when she plays in traffic. She just directs traffic and makes sure drivers have all of their safety stuff on before they are allowed out on the track to go fast. Then for race time they take the qualifying times and makes sure they get lined up correctly.

She does not drive a racy car. She says she doesn't have enough green papers to do that, really doeesn't have any desire to do so even if she had enough green papers. After all these years she says the best part is seeing her furiends that she has made over the many years.

My mom knows about the bonks but didn't know about the blinks. I don't know why, though--I do it to her all the time!

Hope your mum feels better soon!

Our Daddy does the blinky game with us.
Sounds like Doctors Derby & Ducky will be on call! Take care of your Mum and get her well soon.

It was awfully nice of you to purr on her because, really, the hoominz are disgusting when they have stuff coming outta their noses.

Not much of a bonker but I am a blinker.

We knew about that--sometimes I pretend but don't really follow through--just enough to hook the Woman in.

I hope that your Mom feels better soon.

Max said...

We only narrow our eyes to show our displeasure at being lumbered with mum.

We blink and bonk all the time! Mama calls the blinks "blowing kisses". We are blinking and purring now to your mama--summer colds are no fun!

Kea said...

Nicki bonks all the time and his bonks are rough!

Our human does the blinky thing with us, too, but is never sure if we're really doing it or just blinking in a regular way.

We hope your mum feels better soon!

Are you sure about the blinky thing....my cats rarely blink so not as to miss the appearance of any food.

Simba said...

Didn't know about the blinks. Mom says she will have to watch for it now. She thinks my cousin Audrey does it, but not so much me. Audrey definitely does the head bonk thing.

We read about the blink thing a couple months ago - we do it sometimes. Mostly we bonk though!

Your mom evidently has an interesting job!

The tail and whiskers talk tons too! And the ears! TSB swears she reads us well enough but yet she refuses to let us go sometimes when we get to the point of being done with cuddles! Humans... sheesh!
