Hey guys. If you want a lot of attention from your human and have them ooh’ing and ahh’ing…stick your tongue out.

Just a little bit like this…and leave it out. Humans love this. I don’t know why…they just do. They think it’s really cute.

But be prepared to have the camera shoved in your face because for some reason they feel the need to get photos…lots of photos…of you doing this. And they might squee a little bit, too. Squee’ing is hard on the ears. So do what I do…pretend you’re sleeping. Humans are less likely to squee…at least really loud…if they think you’re sleeping. They don’t want you to wake up and then stick that tongue back into your mouth.

Rats. She’s squee’ing despite my fake-sleeping.

  1. Well, that is pretty darn cute Ernie, you sure got her going on about it!

  2. SQUEEEEE!!!! Ooops….sorry.

  3. We are trying so hard to contain our squeeing!

  4. Ernie, you are so cute with your tongue out! We are controlling our squeeing to protect your sensitive ears 🙂

  5. Sometimes after I’m done grooming, I leave my tongue out and my people go nuts. Signed, Benny

  6. Ernie, you totes know ALL about our parents. You were completely right…and you are experienced I can tell. That tongue even looks cute to me…never mind my mom. She’s squeeing.

  7. Well, Mummy definitely squeed when She saw these pics. Caspurr is the only one of Us who sleeps with his tongue out – and she whips out the camera before you can say Jack Robinson (mol).

  8. Oh Ernie, you have everyone squeeing all over the place. Great picture. You all have a super day.

  9. I can never click a pic before that blep goes back in a cat yap, Ernie! The only one who regularly leaves his tongue where I can photo it is The PO’M…

  10. Maybe try the tongue in cheek, haha. Mama is also out of her mind when I stick my tongue out and yes humans are weird.

  11. Awww you are so right, sticking tongue out definitely draws a lot of attention from humans! You’ve got great tip to moderate squeeing, but sometimes humans lose control 🙂

  12. That is excellent fake-sleeping Ernie……and what a tease you are giving her some of that pink tongue to squeeeee over!

    Hugs, Teddy

  13. Yep, that’s a classic kitty technique!

  14. Ernie thanks for that primer on how to get attention. I was wondering about that tongue think but since Dad does a quiet Aww instead of a Squeee you cleared it up

  15. We humans are weak when it comes to you kitties. We can’t help ourselves and you should pity us. Oh wait, I think you do most of the time.

    Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your mom. ♥

  16. Nothing cuter than a pink tongue sticking out – you so nailed the super-cute attention thing Ernie!

  17. Yes, the tongue sticking out will definitely work on the humans to pull out there cameras. A good raspberry tongue like yours that we got to see. Very cute. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

  18. I love kitty tongues too. Phoebe’s used to get stuck when she was bathing, but the second I grabbed the camera, she would suck it in.

  19. Mew mew mew so iss LadyMeow Ernie!!! Shee sayss yore tongue iss so pink an cute….Hu’manss sure are funny aren’t they???

  20. You are so funny, Ernie. And cute too.

  21. No matter if you are asleep or pretending to be we still love seeing that adorable little pink tongue sweet Ernie. Hugs and nose kisses

  22. Kudos to your mom; she’s quick with the camera!

  23. A quarter-turn of your ears should reel that tongue right back in if it gets stuck.

  24. That IS ridiculously adorable!

  25. Oh yes, a tongue showing is always a big hit.

  26. you should have used that this Friday, Friday is National Stick Out Your Tongue Day 🙂

  27. Ernie, our mom is the same way. They are so easily entertained, aren’t they? (And yes, she SQUEE’d too.)

  28. Thankfully mum can squee quietly. So I won’t wake up.

  29. tee hee! Ernie! we thinks a lot of folks are squeeing 🙂

    pip, minnie, hollie, sharpie, ditto, TL

  30. Great actor, Ernie…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead 🙂 <3

  31. NO KIDDING! What is their problem? My Momma came home one day and found me sleeping with my tongue just a little out and she made a whole production out of it! I used to do it more when I was younger … but you can guess why I stopped!

  32. Ernie, you are totally right. I can’t resist a cat’s tongue either 🙂

  33. Humans are weird, aren’t they? But you do look adorbs.

  34. I know how you feel. And when a bit of fang is showing my Mum goes crazy. She loves it. I don’t know why.

  35. Theo loves to do that. He also loves to sit with a spit bubble dangfrom his mouth. Both make me squee.

  36. We humans are so easily amused, aren’t we, Ernie? How is a cat to get any peace?

  37. You do look adorbs, Ernie. TW is strange. If I were to have my tongue stuck out, she’d think I was open-mouthed breathing or something. When she knew nothing about cats, she used to think Faith was having a stroke, believe it or not.

  38. Yup, that IS cute, Ernie. W were gonna squee, but we don’t want you to pull your tongue back in.

  39. Geez, our Mom joined in with your mom with the squee-ing. Good tips, though. *taking notes*

  40. yep-that gets me ooing and ahing every time!!

  41. There is nothing cuter than a little tongue when you’re snoozing! Pictures MUST be taken.

  42. That tongue is very cute. You will have everybody squeeing, Ernie.

  43. Yep Ernie, happens here now and then too.

  44. We think you’re always handsum Ernie. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  45. Yup, did you hear *her* squee from way overhere?? MOL!

  46. Humans go crazy when the tongue is out!
