Animal Defensive Mechanisms

When threatened by predators, the puffercat (floofus maximus) swells up to twice its normal size, distracting attackers with its floofy underbelly because who doesn’t want to snuggle such a floofy belleh, am I right? Who’s got a floofy widdleย tum-tum? Who’s got a floofy-woofy widdle tummy-tum-tum? Is it you? Is — it — you?

    The puffercat floof will overwhelm and defeat any clothing in a color darker than itself. (And watch out for the pointy bits concealed in its extremities!)

    Widdle tum-tum? Yuuuuge tum with floofs extending through the toe beaners.

    Armed and flooferous! Do not approach. Call a certified Profloofinal.

    I think it’s a yeti.

    • debg April 12, 2016 / 10:16 am

      Allein, it’s a house yeti–you know, sized for suburban or urban living.

      • allein April 12, 2016 / 11:19 am

        I wonder if they like snow..

  10. Mariana Paes April 12, 2016 / 10:45 am

    just imagine if you could shrink just enough to curl up and take a nap in all that belly fluff…

    • Lurkingduck April 12, 2016 / 11:11 am

      Mariana, my thoughts went the other way. Just imagine if this was adult human size. What a great concept for a bed!

    OMG! The FLOOF!!! My brain is running in circles going “floof, floof, floof……….” IQ lowering totally successful. We must unleash this on the world!

    poor over weight kitty

    • Faye April 12, 2016 / 11:21 pm

      It’s 60% floof, trust me. I’ve seen a good number of unintentionally drenched cats.

  16. Clairdelune April 12, 2016 / 7:04 pm

    OMG, this kitty is wearing one of those oversized fur coats fashionable in the 1920’s. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Fabulous floof!! Could be a WMD used for psychological warfare… reducing a whole segment of the population into blubbering idiots longing to tough the floof… OK, I have to stop looking and thinking about it.

    Hey NTMTOM? Can you just randomly reprise this post? This is the best hug-out-of-the-blue. Ugh so cute – and ditto to all with the floof. ๐Ÿ™‚ flooofy floof floof! eeeee!
