Interesting Cat fact

Have you ever seen a cat smell something, then make a funny, snearing face? That's what my husband and I call "icky face." Actually, the correct name is "flehming" and that grimace is made in reaction to an intense odor. The cat is actually taking the smell in deeply through the roof of it's mouth and into an organ called Jacob's organ.

Thank you for your compliments.
Our mommy, who is actually a daddy, says he hadn't thought about a book about us. Can you imagine it? But now he will certainly think about creating one (he can do that).

I did not know this! I have seen the expression, but I did not realize what they are doing!
