“Do kitties have belly buttons? They’re mammals, so they have to have belly buttons, right? Have you ever seen one?” Someone asked me that question and my brain got very busy. I could have used Google, but where’s the fun in that? Instead, I tried studying my cat. He was not impressed, nor helpful.
So, I asked my friend, The Vet Tech. VT laughed and said, “Cats have belly buttons, I see them every day at work. Usually, you have to shave their fur in order to see it.”
Then she said, “Do you know what the softest thing in the world is?”
I said, “Hmm, something velvet, or maybe babies? People say babies are pretty soft…”
“Kitten belly fur is the softest thing in the whole world” VT said decisively.
This calls for a double blind scientific study! Is kitten belly fur the softest thing in the world? Fortunately, this explains what kitty belly fur is really like. Study #4 closely.
