    OK, Mo does this wierd thing where he snorts and breaths loudly, flares his nostrils and his pupils dilate! He does it when I have food that he wants, or when I'm getting his dinner ready! He's done it for the last 3/4months and today I thought her was gona pass out or something! I think its an excitment thing like what dogs do sometimes, just wandered if anyone elses cat does this?! He gets himself so worked up around food.

    :LOL: when you said that I pictured a dragon about to blow fire out his nose! That's a weird little thing he does, huh?! That is too funny! Never seen anything like it.

    Piglet snorts a bit when she's walking around checking things out...she sounds almost like a little pig (hence her name, I suppose). I think it's kind of cute actually...LOL!

    I pictured Steve Urkel from Family Matters when you said Mo snorts. Is he secretly a geek?

    I think it's an excitement thing for sure, because my Moody does it around my females when they go in heat--he snorts, huffs, flares his nostrils--the first time I heard him do it I thought he was having an asthma attack or something--he was just expressing excitement--wanted some of that--like Mo wants some of the food. I think it's Sphynx for the same way I feel about potato chips! :LOL:

    Uh, I think she meant "GEEK", not "Greek", as in geek, nerd, dork, doofus. :Study: Steve Urkel is a geeky character from the American 90's sitcom "Family Matters". On the show, he used to snort a lot when he'd laugh. Here's more info on Steve, the ultimate geek:

    I think it's cool that Mo is descended from Russian lines, though...he must have good sphynx stock running in his blood. :ThumbsUp:

    Oh I can hear Urkel's whiny voice in my head now. I think the voice was worse than the snorts! It's so weird to see him out of character with a normal voice- and normal looking outside of his geek outfit. :LOL: Trip down memory lane!

    Ha HA HA HA HA. Oh dear, what a numpty, I didn't read it properly! I'm glad you pointed that out. Thats really funy. How embarrasing! I don't think we have that show here though, we only have rubbish tv programs here other than the american tv shows. Yep I'm proud that Mo has Russian blood, his daddy sphynx has won a lot of shows and prizes.
