Does Your Cat Do This Too? 7 Cats Sticking Their Tongue Out

By Devan McGuinness |

7 Cats Sticking Their Tongue OutHappy Friday, Friends!

What better way to ease out of the work week and jump into the start of the weekend than with some adorable, cute cats?

What makes these cats even cuter is well, they forgot to do one thing — put their tongues back in!

My two cats, Puppy and Ming-Ming do this from time to time and just a few days ago I caught Puppy with this adorable, yet angry face as I interrupted his grooming and he forgot to put his tongue back in.

I used to wonder why or how cats could just sit there like that, but turns out it’s kinda common and usually done for 1 of 3 different reasons.

1) They forgot: Cats spend a lot of time grooming so their tongue is out licking their fur. You may either just see a quick moment as they look up and you catch them with their tongue out, or they simply forgot to put it back in their mouth.

2) They’re relaxed: Some cats get into this really groovy state of being relaxed and their jaw muscles relax or their tongue falls out when they’re asleep.

3) They’re sick or injured: Some medical conditions can have your cat unable to keep their tongue in. If you notice them doing it all the time, it may be worth a visit to the vet.

Now, lets see it in action and browse through some adorable cats who have forgotten to put their tongue away.
