Cats on Tusday: Tummies!

Cats on Tuesday

Here are some photos of our tummies! Since we Sphynx have no fur, you can easily see our "belly buttons" (called an umbillicus). In Dragonheart's second photo below, we have indicated his umbillicus (you can click any of the photos to see a larger version). Like all placental mammals, cats have a belly button, where the umbilical cord was attached while in utero.

look how they sleep... so cute~

Eric and Flynn said...

We've looked but we can't find our belly buttons in all our fur. Mum says they are definitely there though.
Those are sweet sleeping photos, you both look so relaxed.

I like your tummies, Dragonheart and Merlin~! Flat and tight tummy~!! Perfect as men shape~~~
Me and my brother Lego's tummy has oil in there, HAHAHAHAHA~~~

Gattina said...

These are cute bellies !
Thanks for the pet piller link. The trouble with Lisa is that we can't catch her ! she feels when it's pill time even if we don't do it at the same time. Once I have her she gives up and keeps quiet and we can easily put the pill in her mouth ! But what a show every day !!

Criz Lai said...

That looked like mine too.. haha. I love the way you guys sleep. Any nice dreams recently? :)

Parker said...

AAAIIIEEE! So much cute in one post!

Ramses said...

Cute bellies! Tigmut'hep wants to see his own belly button so is trying to eat until his belly is big enough that he can see it easily! ;)

Irishcoda said...

What a couple of handsome tummies belonging to a couple of handsome guys! We can't find any of the gang's belly buttons either, not through all that fur!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Thanks for showing these! The LL and TM were having a talk the other day about animal belly buttons. The LL is really squeamish about BB's (she's weird) but she was brushing Snap's really hard the other day because it was really itchy from the flies. Then the TM said kitties didn't have them and the LL said yes they do!!

Belly buttons are funny! You got some cute ones.

Hee hee! You guys have cute tummies. Titus doesn't have any furs on his belly button so anyone and everyone can see it. Mine and EG's are hidden under our furs. But now I have a feeling that Momma's gonna go searching for them. :)

Love,
Tazo

The best bit about your two tummies is there's no fur to spoil the view. FAZ

we'd forgotten you don't have air conditioning. mommy says she believes in moderation, open windows and fans when possible. we're sorry you don't get to use it. at least you always have open windows right? bird sounds, nice smells...

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Hehe your belly buttons are super cute! You can find Renna's belly button because she has not grown all her furrs on her belly yet. :D
