Gorilla Nose

I am going to show you something funny that happens to my nose when I get chin skritches: it turns into a Gorilla Nose! Here is my regular nose. See? It is a normal shape, kind of like a little heart.
But when I get chin skritches, my nostrils squinch shut a little bit! I am going to call this "Gorilla Nose" because I learned that term from Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage.
Here is a comparison:
Does anyone else make Gorilla Nose?

82 Notes for Daisy:

TT said...

I will has to see if Mommy Bean makes a gorilla nose when I's kneed on her. I do not know if mine does that. I will needs a looking glass to see, if I can'ts get the Mommy Beans to tell me.

Poppy Q said...

Banana kisses to miss pixie.

The Meezers said...

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Your nose is adorable, Daisy. We will have to look closely the next time we get scritches and see if our noses change shape!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Daisy, that is too funny, Gorilla Nose Girl!! No, but our eyes shut tight and sometimes our toesies curl up.

Judy said...

My toesies curl up too !! Mummy has nefer said my nose goes all gorilla like. Maybe she's too busy kissing me to notice.

Adan*Michico said...

Oah Wowww...Daisy~!!
This is very very interesting~!!! I didn't know your nose could do this very lovely different shape!!!!!
Wowww....But I think I will love both your regular nose and Gorilla nose~!

Parker said...

I am going to have to have Mommy check very closely! Gorilla Nose is very cute!

Isis said...

Ooh now this gives me a change for experimentation Daisy! :) I shall demand chin scritches and see if my nose changes when the scritches are done properly... This will however take a lot of research! ;)

-d ma said...

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hmmm...Daisy, you come up with the most interesting questions! We think your nose is adorable! Either way!!!

feefifoto said...

Oh Daisy -- the gorilla my dreams.

Zoolatry said...

Grrrr. Sniff. Scritch. HAPPY.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Dat's really interesting. It makes us want to know more. Why duz dat happen? Ut oh. Here comes mom to try to gives us Gorilla noses too!

Maria said...

Serious gorilla nose going on over here, with wrinkles all the way up the nose!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

We have a hard time picturing the word gorilla in reference to you, Daisy! You are way too precious!
Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon

Ariel said...

Hi Daisy,

I think your nose is adorable :)

Hannah Fanna said...

Is your nose cold? Is it fun to do Gorilla Nose? I bet to see a picture of your whole body doing Gorilla Nose would be fabulous!

(And more adorable than possible!)

Jessica said...

Kitter does, but she says she doesn't. Go figure.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Your gorilla nose is very cute Daisy! I'm not sure if we do gorilla nose but we'll check it out the next time we gets chin scritches.

Mickey said...

That is too funny! Heeheehee
My nose does not scrunch up quite like yours. You have a neat nose ;)
It is much cuter than a gorilla though !
Purrs Mickey

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Monty Q. Kat said...

MomBean does after I use the catbox...

Sarge Charlie said...

Did someone say I have a goreilla nose?

zevo husssein calamari said...

Hmmmmmm we have to test this one out....
I still think you have a cute nose no matter what you call it!

Tybalt said...

Daisy, you have a lovely nose . . . even when it is scrunched up like a gorilla's! Those pictures made my mommy 'squee' at your cuteness.

Mommy says she is going to look closely at my nose the next time I get skritches to see if it changes.

Junior said...

Wow! Gorilla nose huh? I will have to have Meowm check it out! I think we are both making Gorilla noses with Orions stink in the house!

Alasandra said...

We like your gorilla nose. ~Scylla, Charybdis & Socks

Quasi said...

Daisy, you're adorable. But since cats rule the universe, is it possible that the gorilla is really doing "skritched cat nose" and not the other way around? BTW, Steve and the female envy your mommy's camera skills, whatever those are.

Babs (Beetle) said...

Hmmm...Not sure about my nose. I will investigate that. You have a very cute nose. The gorilla looks like he has a serious skin disorder!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Well, we're gonna have to check this one out!

The Furry Kids said...

Ooh, this is the cutest post, Daisy. I do not know if my nose does this. I think I need some chin scritches. ASAP.

love,
Tazo

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Humph. If I ever got any attention, perhaps I would make such a nose but no one ever scratches my chin...

Lois Grebowski said...

nope... but my nose is funny looking as it is...LOL!

Cecil the Cougar: said...

I am not sure if I made a Gorilla Nose because I do not let Mommie get near my chin very often. When I see her hand coming close to me I give it the bitey to let her know I am ready to play! I am always ready to play!! Unless I am ready to sleep. Then I let her pet me.

CastoCreations said...

Either way it is an adorable nose! I am impressed with your mommy's talent to take a photo and scratch your chin!

Boy said...

I do I do! I makes gowiwwa nose too!

catsynth said...

You have a very expressive nose :)

PB & J said...

It's a happy nose! Maybe gorillas are happy?!

We'll have to see what our noses do!

Junior said...

Miss Daisy,

Apparently Orion was tested for all kinds of things when meowm took in his poo sample. A test was done in the v-e-t-s office and more testing done elsewhere. Mewom was told parasite testing was done out of the office and in the office they tested for the other stuff...heartworm andother things like that.

We just hope that with being on the same food I am and a little more time will clear up his aroma. If your Mom has any suggestions, we will be happy to have them.

Thanks!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I dunno...it doesn't look anything like the nose on that Gorilla!

Bonnie Underfoot said...

Daisy, I would love to join the pink ladies. I have sent you an email. I so look forward to visiting with some respectable felines.
Your nose is entirely too cute to compare to a gorilla.

The Whiskers & Purrs Gang said...

We just LOVE your gorilla nose! Our human hasn't noticed if we make one or not, but we told her to check it out the next time we get a chin scratch!

Still waiting for Asta's return. Did you know that our human got to meet her FOR REAL! What a cute dog!

Love,
Opus and Roscoe

Rosehaven Cottage said...

Yay!!! You can do "gorilla nose" too! Oh, Tom Tom will be so proud that someone on the other side of the U.S. can do "gorilla nose" too! He's the one that made us coin the phrase to begin with because when he scrunches up his all-black nose it looks just like the gorilla's nose in the picture you posted. YAY!

Hugs and purrs,
Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

Lorianna said...

Oh Daisy, that's so cute! I call Cody "Monkey Face" sometimes, because he does remind me of a baby gorilla. But, at other times he reminds me of a baby bear. Kitties are so entertaining. :)
Have a Lovely Day!
Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna
