Even if you’ve never heard the word “blep” before, you’ll know exactly what it is if you’ve lived with cats. A “blep” is when a cat leaves his or her tongue slightly out of their mouths. Known for their usual regal air, this leaves cats looking a little less than distinguished.
I’ve lived with cats my whole life and I think this phenomenon is hilarious. A few months ago, I learned it actually had a name and today I googled it just for fun. LOLOL! The images that popped up were RIDCULOUS!
I also found this article which tries to explain why cats blep. The expert in the piece says it has something to do with when a cat is doing the Flehmen response (which I call vampire face). Apparently, they get so into what they’re smelling they forget to put their tongue back in their mouths!
Anyway, I could go on and on about how wonderful, funny, and fascinating cats are. Let’s get to what you came here for. Look at these pics! 😹😹
