Sharpening the nose. Video.

I once showed you a picture where Usyaka is sharpening her nose. She does it every morning with the blinds’ string.

Here’s the video of Usyaka doing just the same with a toy’s string.

    Oh God! Look at her paw, she’s HOLDING the string in order to touch it with her nose and mouth. Cats are smart animals, indeed but I sure never seen a cat doing this! Our cats have to meet, ours will be so much brighter, haha πŸ˜€

      Yes, exactly, she uses her fingers a lot on this process πŸ™‚
      Usyaka once met a huge rottweiler. We took the rottweiler away the moment Usyaka started walking towards the dog. She’s never met any cats, though:)

    In our home we call that making it “Mine”! Usyaka is one beautiful kitty!

    I assume she’s scent-marking the string, but why string, I wonder?

    • Alexandra says:

      I don’t know, I’m not sure it’s a scent-marking. It’s one and the same string, every morning and then any other string that is stretched in front of her nose.

    I see that people got interested in what exactly is going on. We’re so used to it we almost forgot it’s weird.
    I don’t think it’s the usual scent-marking, because she’s using her tongue a lot during the process. She wets a string and then slides her nose along the string, she presses more around the nose area.
    She does it every morning with a special string near the window and that usually happens when she’s washing herself before breakfast. I’m inclined to think she’s using a string as a tool to scratch her nose.
    Whenever she’s offered any other string she readily repeats the procedure.
    As it was noticed above, she does use her hands a lot in this to control which way the string is going.
    She likes having her nose scratched with a cocktail straw (It’s another story, I’ll show this some time later) so she probably just likes the sensation. Still, I’m not sure. It’s her thing, her secret πŸ™‚
