Target Is A Squeezelbug

Target is the sweetest little cat I've ever known.  We have a cuddle and purr first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and at odd times during the day.  Target loves to cuddle so much that he also wakens me in the middle of the night, purring and headbutting.

As he's such a cuddle bug, we've developed a whole new language together.  I call him my squeezel kitty.  My kitten kersqueezel. My kitten kersqueezel cuddle fliffle.....

Au is completely nauseated by this mawkish nonsense but Target thinks it's the best thing ever.  All I have to say is, "Are you my little kitten cat?" and Target rolls over, purring in anticipation of having his tummy rubbed and his ears stroked.

We've just had our post breakfast cuddle and Target ha retired to bed for half an hours nap.  He's so happy that he's just a puddle of boneless fur.

Oh to be a cat!  

PS I'd show you a picture of Target right now but Blogger is acting up...so here's an older pic of Target smiling.

Oh, Target, our Mommy has fun names for us too, does yours talk directly into your tummy fur? We get all wiggly and happy--you should totally get your Mom to try it!

Lorenza said...

Sure you two share the best moments!
Blogger is acting weird again, right?
I had to upload my pictures directly from Picasa! Hmmm...
Kisses and hugs

Target is a sweetie pie!

What a darling cuddlebug! I am not a lap kitty and I don't even like being picked up and cuddled, much to the chagrin of SS.

Simba said...

How sweet to know that about Target (and Au too). Nothing as nice for a human as a good kitty cuddle.

I'm jealous cos Target only does that with YOU! I wish Target would be a squeezelbug with other people too!

Old Kitty said...

That's so sweet when a cat loves cuddles ! In my cat family it's only Pookie. Rosie tries to bite me after a while and Arthur is just too "male" for that. Not to talk about Kim who always runs away if we want to touch her ! But Pookie is like Target, she can't get enough !

Mr Puddy said...

Target, my mom would like to have extra cuddle from you : )

Mango said...

Nothing wrong with that. Cuddles are great for all involved parties.

Slobbers,
Mango

Brian said...

You really are a snuggly cutie Target!!!

Dianne said...

I love cuddly cats
Isadora is a cuddler, Siren not so much
Target is a sweetie

Pokey was an animated clay character on TV for years and years
he and his sidekick Gumby became cult heroes

We're called silly names too - but we're not telling you what they are cos we'll feel silly!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Irishcoda said...

How sweet! None of the gang are true squeezelebugs but I've had kitties like Target before and they're so lovable!

Sharon Wagner said...

Every morning my cat Akua rushes up to see me and get petted. It's so cute. He's just like Target.

Photo Cache said...

Oh Target you are such a cutie. My Buster is orange just like you.

GrammyMouseTails said...

He knows the cuddle bug gets all the hugs & scricthes! share the love :)

Live Out Loud said...

Oh! 'Squeezelbug'!! I love that!! Oh, he is cute. He wakes you up for cuddles? Mine used to do that - I actually sort of miss it and it makes me wonder what she's been doing all night instead...

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Oh how I would love to khuddle with Target ;-)

Hugz&Khysses,

Target is very cute in the picture - can definitely seem him as a cuddlebug :)

Target, you are so sweet. None of us are very snuggly with the humans, but Ciara just loves to snuggle with Thunder.

Kitikata-san said...

I think I am like Target. I love to purr and headbutt, and I really like being close to my humans as often as I can to be petted.

And, thanks for seeing me and my twin brother Tober! When I am photographed without a flash, my stripes look just like Tobers!

Clooney said...

Oh Target, we love your little nicknames and we love cuddly kitties too...they are so irresistable!

Carol said...

I'm smiling, too :) So cute!
I talk the same way to my pups. Love it!

Marilynn said...

Oh, my! That's what goes on with Grace ... and sometimes Ruse!! Isn't it fun? Better than human children ... who manage to grow up and not want those hugs and squeezes anymore!

Love the Squeezelbug!!

Marilynn, Grace & Company

Cheri said...

Love cuddle cats. Target is the best of all.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Oh Target..and Au too. I love you boys and you are so loving because your mom is so loving. People who don't have any kitties never can understand how loving and precious the love of a kitty is. You have to earn it but then, that puddle of boneless cat and those purrs and headbutts are worth every second you took TO earn it.

Whisppy said...

I have yet to find a cat that loves to be cuddled. My cats will tolerate it but I can tell they don't exactly enjoy it. If only Target would let me cuddle when I come by....

meowmeowmans said...

We love cuddly cats, Target! :)

ABBY said...

Target is so adorable!!

purrs

pat said...

My Mikan is the same! He will sit on my chest in the middle of the night and start purring!!

Perhaps it is the ginger tabby genes? ;-)
