Soooo Close

You’re lucky I’m outside this door. Or I would give you the biggest, slobberiest ZERBERT ever!

Antonio (Irish Setter) wonders what he’s missing, Marcel (kitteh belleh!) and Nastassia T.

    OMG bellehbellehbellehbelleh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

  2. mindadale says:

    One of those perfect moments that are so hard to catch on camera! Way to go, Nastassia! 🙂

  3. skippymom says:

    Oh and um, could somebody grab my head and kind of whack it back into place? I hurt my neck trying to look at the kitty belly upside down, or do I mean right side up?

  4. Adorable! I love Marcel’s curled up paws and the big white kissy spot on the top of Antonio’s head.

  5. Marcel is tempting Antonio with his belleh body! what a tease!

  6. Rachael says:

    His kissy spot is what keeled me.

  7. sleekityin says:

    Marcel is giving Antonio a masterclass lesson in the art of the Qte:
    Curled front paws, exposed floofy belleh, upside down head tilt.
    Checklist complete, chin scritches/tasty snack now imminent.

  8. I can totaly see the movie in my head…Antonio going in for the zerbert and Marcel clamping on to his head and then ….pandemonium!! 😆

  9. 260Oakley says:

    Sing it with me:
    How much is that moggie in the window?

  10. You may see my belleh but you cannot touch eet.

  11. skippymom says:

    Chloe likes to lie on her back exposing her irresistible belly, but if one of the boys sniffs it or I touch it, she smacks us. Such a typical girl.

  12. FluffyPants says:


    *run away*

  13. Kari Callin says:

    I’ll give the kitten a zerbert for you, pup!
    (cough, cough, cough)
    (spits cat hair out)
    TA DA!

  14. And orange and red fur flying everywhere! I see it, too…

  15. The combination of curled up paws and floofy belleh is a killer — Marcel knows just what he’s doing, that sweet furry muzzle does not fool me for a moment!!! [melting silently]

  16. Theresa says:

    ah, reminders of the most delectable kitty belly, my Stinky’s. Pure, blinding white. 😉 His back feet would splay to either side, and he would sort of spread, and looked very wide . . . in fact, he looked like an aircraft carrier. 😆

  17. Fird Birfle says:

    Here’s a small, brown paper bag, skippymom.

    Breeeeeeeeeeeeathe IN. Breeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaathe OUT.
    Breeeeeeeeeeeeathe IN. Breeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaathe OUT.


    THAT’s better, now, izzn’t it?? 🙂

  18. Fird Birfle says:

    @ skippy mom: see my note and a-Cute Medical Therapy, above.

  19. you cruel people! do not tease me with kitteh belleh!!!

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    A belleh Dancer !!!

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    (as in the GOOD Batman tv series): WHAP !!! BAM!!! ZING!!!!

  22. Fird Birfle says:


  23. ZERBERT? I am not familiar with this term. I have been away for a few weeks in “a small town in France”.

    Is it anything like a noogie?

  24. warrior rabbit says:

    I believe it’s a raspberry to a body part… like a furry tummy.

  25. warrior rabbit says:

    I would like to be told (preferably by the owner) that Marcel and Antonio are buds.

  26. Theresa says:

    The funny thing was I would stick my face in the belly fluff, and he would just look confused and wrap his paws around my head. 😆

  27. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m not the owner but in case she doesn’t see this, I think it’s likely they are buds or Marcel wouldn’t be exposing his vulnerable tummy in that way. He’d be all up at the door facing out with an “oh yeah?” posture instead.

  28. What we would call a ” belly blow”, or as you said, a raspberry to the tummy regions. Oui? Avec le spit or non?

  29. ….and I think kitteh is well aware of this pup! You are yet to comprehend the magnitude of evil that resides in a kitteh’s brain!

  30. Oh and also I luuuuuuuvvvvvsssss it when my kittehs do this.

  31. More like taunting his luxuriating in air conditioning.

  32. Time for a kitty comm – upance. My little Hunter thinks that ” He is Gods little cutest furry fluff ball ” and he always gets the dog into trouble. Our Kitty ” Hunter ” does the same thing – lay on your back and play cute while the doggie pays the penalties. We humans are getting smarter and watching. The culprit is the cat .

  33. Fird Birfle says:

    yknow how boys delight, in verbally recreating the sound of a fart?

    A zerbert aka a raspberry (not sure how it developed as “raspberry”) is verbally making the sound of a fart, and also making it AGAINST somebody else’s skin.

    Most enjoyably on a ticklish body part.

  34. Bill Cosby used the term zerbert.

  35. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    Poke? Run away? No way. I wanna snorgle that white fluffy belleh. He looks exactly like our own dear departed Taffy Anne.

    The puppers is incredibly sweet looking too.

  36. Cerulean says:

    It originated on the Cosby Show. His youngest had taken hold of the concept that letters spell words by the other end, asking “What does Z-B-R-T spell?” Other members of the family were like “nothing, it’s not a word” but Cosby supplied the word and demonstrated the definition. By the way, this means you are all misspelling zbrt.

  37. I think Marcel’s expression is of pure innocence…”like whaa?? I’m just laying here doing absolutely nuffin! I don’t have a clue why Antonio is watching me from outside.”

  38. so sad. I’m in mods….*steals a sammich and finds a drink*

  39. FluffyPants says:

    Haha if I poke my kitty’s tummy, she’d eat me, so that’s why I’d run away 🙂 Maybe this kitty is kinder.

  40. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    Marcel sings,

    “You want it all but you can’t have it,
    It’s in your face but you can’t grab it”

  41. Fird Birfle says:

    Which brings me to mind of one of my favorite older songs …

    “Keep a-knockin’ but ya cain’t come in
    Keep a-knockin’ but ya cain’t come in
    Keep a-knocking but ya cain’t come in

    come back tomorrow night and try it again”

    Hint: by “knockin'”, he/ she DI-unt mean “on the door of the
    house in which I live” 😯

  42. warrior rabbit says:

    Also known as a Bronx cheer, I believe.

  43. warrior rabbit says:

    I mean the basic raspberry, not the zerberted raspberry.

  44. That Cat is very lucky!
    Bella and DiDi

  45. I have been sick with the flu and my cat has been posing like this,trying to cheer me up.

  46. snoopysnake says:

    Can too! I just gave him a very cursory belleh rub. Admit it, everyone, so did you!

  47. no spit, just the noise 😯

  48. 😆 I would just love to see a picture of that, Theresa 😆

  49. Theresa says:

    Not available, I’m afraid, but here is a picture of his belly:

  50. 😆 Don’t all kitties think they are “Gods little cutest furry fluff balls”, martha 😆

  51. AWW 😀 That is so nice of your kitty, Trina 😀 What is his/her name? 😀

  52. Oh, I so want to snorgle Marcel’s belly 😀

  53. skippymom says:

    I miss Stinky!
    (no, I never knew him, but I still miss him)

  54. Fird Birfle says:

    clicked and enjoyed, Th.

    Espec. was charmed by the Monty Python capshon, unnerneath Stinky’s picture.
