In case you're wondering, yes, Orson's belly is even softer than it looks.

  1. I understand that it's a sign of trust and contentment when a cat exposes their tummy. Orson must really be happy to do that. Good job!

  5. Haha, the third picture is just too funny!

  6. I....want Orson. WANT!!
    I wonder if he would consent to living in Canada with 2 big sisters. Well, 2 older sisters anyways, they're probably smaller than he will be.

  10. he's an angel straight from heaven.
    i love the side ways shot of his little nose and his feet sticking up.
    has he found a forever home yet?
    i'll bet there is a lot of interest in orson.
    too bad they have to shave all the fluff off of that beautiful lil belly.

  14. Been having a bit of a computer nightmare this afternoon and one look at lovely Orson here and, like everyone else, want to snorgle that belly of his...

  15. What a cutie. That is the most perfect fuzzy belly for snorgling I've ever seen!

  16. Heart-meltingly cute!!! My old biddy Kylie cat has a scrumptious-looking tummy, but there's no way you can ever touch it.

  18. oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Orson tummy is mmmffmmfmmfmrmfmfmmm
    ppfft pffth ahem... snorglable

    The first shot of this Orson collection is pure kitten bliss and trust! There is a full tummy field of such fluffy white belly fur that I have to wonder - will Orson STILL make weight when he has endured the attentions of the vet techs - pre-itty-bitty-bit removal?

    He has such a gloriously pink nose leather and lips that are almost startling in that gorgeous white fur on the lower half of his face.

    His eyes are closed enough that they nearly disappear in the tabby-markings of the upper face - in UTTER kitten bliss!

    Thanks Charlene for your help keeping Orson's white fur so bright!

    Ooof I want to bury my face in that fuzzy wuzzy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh. My. God. I just got a cuteness headache.

  26. The third one makes a really lovely computer background.

    Now to resist snorfing computer...

    ReplyDelete
  27. OH what they all said! And yes, for a kitty do that he has to be 100% secure, safe-feeling, happy and well-fed.....My Evangeline *occasionally* allows some tummy-stroking. Lilliane? Well - she sprawls on her back on the table mewing "rubmerubmerubmerubme"....no shrinking violet, she!

  28. I love that Orson boy! For many of us, it was love at first sight!

    Wonderful news from the cattery ~ Miss Beatrix II has been adopted! I wasn't there to meet her new family but I hear they're marvelous. Hooray!

    And YAYs for Orson (not this little guy, but our big guy at the shelter), and Madi (she was at PetSmart for a whole month)who also found their new forever homes! Woo Hoo!

  29. I believe that in certain internet cat circles, this pose is known as "The Full Monty". It looks like Orson is a born master of this.

  32. Oh good grief... my poor kittehs won't know what hit them when I get home. Watch out bebes, mom is in need of some serious surrogate belleh snorgles!

    LOL, Junior! Tis a full monte indeed.

    And shana, woo hoo for Madi, Big Orson and Miss Beatrix II! That's awesome! I love hearing your reports!

  33. OMG! In lieu of snorgling Orson's delectable belleh... I must snorgle my Sampson's. He does love some belleh snorgles & scritches!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just want to shove my face into his soft little belly-meats and snuggle!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ohhh...I love Orson. His little belly...oh the cuteness!! Are we allowed to borrow some of these pix for screensavers?

  39. Looks like you have a Maine Coon mix on your hands. Classic Coon sleeping pose, long ear tufts, big feet and soft belly...makes me wish I didn't live in the North East because I want him!!!!!

  40. I never comment but Orson's belly demanded I do so. It has its own power. We should send him to the U.N. for peace talks.

    I am so lucky I am in the Midwest; otherwise, I would have to break my rule about owning more than two furry faces. I am in love with Orson.

  41. Oh, I love soft kitty bellies! Smokey has the softest tummy--I can just sink my fingers into her silky fur, and she loves it. Orson looks just as soft.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Eeee! I love little Orson! I wish he could be mine! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  43. Another thought - Orson just realised the extreme levels of his cuteness and keeled over! ;)
