Last night, I had the fortuitous opportunity to witness something I don’t believe I have ever seen before.

Murphy has had the sneezes lately.

(I think he has a little cold – no eye or nose discharge – just a few sneezes and sleeping more than usual.)

I was going to bed, and Murphy jumped up on the bed, and had his little furry face pointed at my sleeping husband – so Murphy was facing away from me.  And being the immensely happy cat that he is, his tail was straight up.

Thus, I had a clear view of his little kitty butthole.

And he sneezed.

And at the same time, his little kitty butthole gave a little pooch outward.

Not a blow out – just a little pooch.

Just a small physical acknowledgment of the change in air pressure in his body?

OMG.  It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

Up until now, I have only been on the front end of a cat sneeze (not nearly so funny and definitely a wetter experience).

So, do all cats’ buttholes pooch out when they sneeze?

Or are we just the lucky owners of one talented cat?

Inquiring minds want to know.
