That Jacobson's organ allows cats to perceive the chemicals surrounding us all at every minute of the day. It's the same organ reptiles use when flicking their tongues....elephants have one, too. Interesting, isn't it?

Love the nose pic! I remember how my cats' noses acted like a vaccumm cleaner and if they smelled something they didn't like, they'd try to dig it up!

That's a great website. I love kitty noses too, and as some of the commenters on the webpage said, their pink toes too. A warm pink kitty nose and warm pink kitty toes. That's what I want.

thanks, I love our cat's nose....but I thought the idea that no two humans have identical fingerprints was debunked????

Excellent hearing and smell...most cats run to use a clean litter box but hate fragranced litter because of that fact.
