Chicklet is one of our two cats who frequently finds himself in a poem....


You know the feeling…that sharp pain that shoots straight
 up through the roof of your mouth and into your sinuses and right up into your brain?
It generally happens when you eat ice cream
 or guzzle down a frozen drink.
It soon goes away as you thaw out.
Our cat, Chicklet will jump up onto the tv table
At the side of my desk and guzzle down
My glass of ice water until he cannot
Reach anything but the ice and yet
That little pink tongue
Hits the ice cubes at what seems like
90 miles an hour, leaving deep indentations
the size of his tongue in the cubes.
So I wonder, do cats get brain freeze?

I know one thing there ESP is very powerful. My cat Giuseppe can wake me from a deep medicated sleep without touching me. It happens every day I awake and see him sitting about 10 feet away just staring at me. This was an excellent writing.

Ha! I bet cats do get brain freeze! Hair balls are easier to spit out than brains! LOL...interesting observation, Susan...

Hmmmm, interesting question. I will have to observe mine, I have three, and see what transpires. I do know my pups chew ice cubes and guzzle down their puppy ice cream and no worse for the wear, but I will watch the kitties more closely...

Be always safe,
