There Are No Words

DSC_0681

Really, there are no words to describe the softness of this little boy.

I consulted a thesaurus, and all words fell short:

Comfortable, cottony, cozy, creamy, cushiony, cushy, delicate, doughy, downy, ductile, easeful, easy, elastic, feathery, fine, flabby, fleecy, fleshy, flexible, flimsy, flocculent, flowing, fluffy, fluid, formless, furry, gelatinous, impressible, limp, malleable, moldable, mushy, pappy, pithy, plastic, pliable, pulpy, quaggy, rounded, satiny, silken, silky, smooth, snug, spongy, squashy, supple, thin, velvety, yielding.


Nope.

He's all of that combined and multiplied by a squillion.

  1. I am just amazed everytime I see his picture how much he looks like Bug...too bad we aren't closer or I would swear they were related. :) Good luck to them and I am sure they will make your parents very happy!

  4. I am soooo excited for your parents! (Not like I know them or anything, but from reading your blog these past years, you can tell they are great people, and Nigel & Mimsy are clearly great kittens)

  5. Awwww .. we wish we could stroke him.

    We've made up a noo word to describe him:

    Comfloofycuddlesum!

  6. He's perfection. Perfection times a squillion.


    I think he might object to being called flimsy and limp though :)

  9. Ahaha! I like 'flocculent'. You are right though: it is not nearly cute enough for Nigel.

  10. I have a wonderful "throw" that my critters and I like to curl up in. It looks something like Nigel and it's called "Lammie".

  11. P.S. That's the name that was on the label bt when I say it I'm sayin "lambie".

  12. I think 'floofy' says it all.

  13. I think Nigel's what happens when a kitten thinks he's a lamb.

  14. Awwwww! Softer than a chinchilla, I bet. As I have said before, Nigel is so floofilicious!

  15. I'm very happy to see that Nigel has his tail tucked up under his paw. It is very important to hold onto the tail while sleeping, lest it move around on its own and entice mischief. My girls all learned this lesson and now sleep holding onto their tails. Of course, they prefer to use their front paws but Nigel still has a short, stubby little kitten tail which probably does not yet reach to his front paws, regardless of his bendy-ness.

  16. Such a sweet looking little snugglemuffin! He looks like the negative version of my beloved Mr Floofenshorts (aka Sunspot), who was all black save a couple appearing and disappearing curly white whiskers -- the other whiskers were straight and black.

    Oh, do I want to kiss your little Nigel!

  17. I'd love to play "Where's Nigel?" with a photo of him asleep on a sheepskin pad. I think that would become his version of an invisibility cloak.

  18. I like "downy" and "cottony" and "fleecy" of the list your thesaurus provided. Your parents and these kitties are going to have a wonderful life together!

  19. what a tease you are Laurie!
    kind of like eating a delicious cookie in front of a four year old and telling them how 'scrumpdillyishous' it is, but too bad YOU dont have any. :) hee hee

  20. Oh goodness gracious! There are also no words to describe the loveliness of this picture... :) But it certainly makes me happy!!!

  21. flocculent is a delightful word to describe darlin' Nigel

    ReplyDelete
  22. PLease put up a video of Nigel before he goes, I have to see that cottony-fleecy-floof move around :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. I "vote" for flocculent as well.

    Any Canadians out there remember the Royale kittens? I think Nigel would fit right in.

  24. Who needs goose feather pillows when there's Nigel to snuggle with? I'm officially jealous of your mum and dad, Laurie! :D

  25. If Nigel and Baby Pat from Pitter Pats were to meet, I think the entire universe would melt from the extreme cuteness and floofiness!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awww I just love when they curl up like this, you just want to snuggle right up there with them, he is just the epitomy of fluffiness!!

  27. Kittens like him are so soft that you cannot feel the fur at first when you touch them.

  28. He reminds me of my beautiful tabby Benny - sooo cute!
