Two Tails on Tuesday

When we come back from our walks, the first thing we do is eat. Notice the water bowl. We don't know why mum puts it by our biscuits, we have never ever drunk from it. We prefer to drink from the tap, or better still, rain water. Mum has put that bowl there ever since we were kittens-nine years it's been there being refilled every day!

Tuesday Bonus Pic! One Tongue on Tuesday.
Mum didn't realise until she put the photos on the computer just how long my tongue is! She said to me 'However do you get all that tongue back in your mouth Flynnie?'

What very handsome tails you two mancats have! Our Mum does the same thing with the water bowl. We much prefer it fresh out of the tap.

Misha said...

I can't tell you two apart from the back!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! you do have a very long tongue!

The Creek Cats said...

Wowzers! That is a loooong tongue you have, Flynn!

Yes, you are the Gene Simmons of the cat world.

I have a water bowl by my food dish too, rarely use it. But the one mum has in her litterbox room? I use that all the time.

Sweet Praline said...

You look like twins from the back. I like bottled spring water now.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You look so much alike from behind! I love your long pink tongue!

katztales said...

Terrific matching tails! Target and Au have an upstairs water bowl and a down stairs drinking glass - and they love both.

Tuck said...

At least you know that the water is there in case you ever need it!

Angel and Kirby said...

Our Mom does that wiv the water bowl too. She puts fresh water every day and we ignore it. We prefer from the tap, or the barf!

We love your stripey tails ~ really cool!

Kari said...

No doubt you're brothers, is there.

Double the beauty.

That must be your Emergency Water. You know, just in case it doesn't rain or something. Our Nana has 9 gallon jugs of water in the garage. Just.In.Case.

The Island Cats said...

The minute she takes the bowl away is the one time you're gonna want to drink from it...

Flynn...that tongue is amazing! Maybe your mom should try to measure it!

Furkidsmom said...

We drink from our fountain but Cousin Trooper drinks from the sink. You do have a very long tongue!!

Tracey and Huffle said...

It is a long tongue. All the better to bathe you with!

We think we're a bit afraid of that tongue.

The Kitty Krew said...

That is a long tongue, Flynn! Reminds our Mommy of the photo she posted of Bugsy when he took a baff when his cone came off after the eye surgery last month.

You two blend well into the flooring of your food room. As has been said, the water bowl is probably a 'just in case'. You know how finnicky we kitties can be, one day you may decide you don't want the tap or rain water! MOL

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Cat Street Boyz said...

Oh my Cod, that is an amazingly long tongue! Do you have a rewind button for that thing=^Y^=

Sam and Andy said...

We agree....those bowls beside the food are just for looks......we prefer our special cups in the litterbox rooms....or drinking from the tap.

xxxxxxx

SuziQCat said...

What neat tails you have boys...glad to see you getting along so well.

Maybe if your mom filled that drinking bowl with tuna juice, she could tempt you :)

♥Da fambly cat-a-blog kitties♥ said...

Our momma nearly passed out when she saw that loooonnnnnggggg tongue! WOWZA!

CCL Wendy said...

Eric and Flynn look even more alike from that angle! They both even have a white strip in their ginger furs on their backs!

Your mama is just being a good mother because she knows it is essential to your good health to always have a source of clean water. Not her fault that kitties prefer dirty water.

Yes, wow -- Flynn's tongue is amazing. Are you sure he's not part lizard?

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

HOLY CAT TONGUE, CatMan!!! WOW!!! And we really like that your both have the matching white stripe on your backs!

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh boys, humans are just like that, they keep doing things during their whole lives without knowing why...
purrs and love

The Crew said...

Hey, you guys sort of blend right in with the floor color. Nice tails, too!

I prefer ice cubes in my water. Max likes the faucet and Tipper & Misty don't care one way or the other.

Daisy said...

I am very relieved to see that I am not the only cat with a long tongue!

Cats in trees said...

A nibble after (or in between) outdoor activities is always the best.
And your tongue is impressive. But you are a big boy, so we guess it saves a lot of bathing time.

jenianddean said...

Great pics today! You guys almost blend in with the floor where your food is. Mom and Dad have tried to get us to drink from the tap, but it makes my napping sink all wet. And that tongue -- better for bathing!

Our Mom has water all over the house and she hardly ever sees us in it. I myself prefer to make her turn the faucet on and I get "fresh" water.
