Dougy occasionally dresses up for the holidays by styling…
…his ear. Like it? I think it gives him a ’50’s retro “duck butt” look.
Dougy does this sometimes when he cleans his face. If he doesn’t put his ear back in position, I do it for him. On the other hand, I sometimes think he is channeling the ghost of my childhood dog, Peanuts, who was a canine comedian and who sometimes wore his ear this way . Dougy is my feline comedian, Sometimes he wears his ear this way.
Hmm… I don’t think I’ve ever tried wearing my ear that way. I wonder what it feels like. Dougy may be on to something there. Maybe it lets the ear dry out from all the humidity. Maybe I should try it sometime, ’cause I get itchy ears a lot from allergies.
Andy does, too, but we control that through diet. I wonder, too, how that feels. Apparently it doesn’t hurt, but it looks like it would….
Very cute Dougy.
It fits his personality…! Ha!
Nothing better than the slicked by ear look. It makes a statement to all….”See my ears are spotless.”
If I don’t put it back in place, his ear wiggles generally take care of it.
I’ve never met a cat who would sit there with his or her ear folded that way. Dougy is indeed a comedian! 🙂
I had to look up photos of the 1950s “duck butt” look. 🙂
Makes me laugh every time! He already makes me laugh but the way he postures and preens during his clean up. The folded ear is a bonus chuckle!
My late brother was one of those kids with a duck butt ‘do in the 1950s or I weouldn’t know what they were. Well, maybe I weould, but that exposure pretty much was close and personal. I had a buzz – uniformly short all over!
Oh, Dougy! 😆
As noted elsewhere, he puts on a funny show when cleaning up, and the folded ear business is the frosting on the cake: Dougy makes me laugh!
