English is a great language but it is short a few expressions. So here are a few definitions from our cat vocab:
Snizzle circle: a hair band. The origin of this term lies in Target's baby name, Mr Snizzles, as well as in the fact that these soft stretchy hair bands are his favourite toys.
Squizzle: to pet a cat, usually by bunching your fingers and running them under the chin or at the bit where the tail and backbone meet. (Note: Tom says, "scrizzle" so this word already has UK and US variations!)
Fuzzle: a friendly nickname for any cat but also a verb that describes those times when you're lying flat somewhere with a kitty on top of you who is absolutely boneless with bliss because you are squizzling him.
Kitty collapso: when a cat is so relaxed when sleeping that you check his breathing to make sure he's OK.
So this is how you get, "Target was playing with his snizzle circle until Au asked for squizzles. Then Target got all jealous so we fuzzled for a bit and now he's completely kitty collapso."
