How Does THAT Work? Digestion!

So I been THINKING real hard about something.... if you are SQUEAMISH you might not want to read this one. Even though it is part of NATURE. I was WONDERING, how does FOOD turn from delicious goodness into STINKY brown stuff? This took a LOT of thought, but I FIGURED it out!
This is a DEMONSTRATION cat. In case you did not RECOGNIZE me, the DEMO cat is ME! Harley Quinn!

Anyway, the RED part is my INNARDS. The FOOD goes down the THROAT into the BIG ROUND stomach. Finally, before it turns into POOPS along the way, it goes through the STINK ORGAN. This turns the foods BROWN and adds a bad SMELL to it. This is WHY you want to GET RID of the food by POOPING it out - because it is no longer any GOOD!
It is hard to believe, but TRUE. Science is INTERESTING that way.

84 Notes for Daisy:

Christine said...

So it must be that some kittehs have a more potent stink organ than others. Bigger kittehs = bigger stink organ = more stink. At our house, Sabby is the biggest, even bigger than you, Harley, he is almost 20 pounds! And his poop is the stinkiest of them all. Therefore, does it go to say that your poop is stinkier than Daisy's? Since Daisy is smaller, she doesn't have as big of a stink organ as you do, right?

Mumble said...

Thank you Harley. I always wondered about that and now I know!

Hurray for Harley!

Winston said...

Harley you are real smart to know that, I always wondered how that happened and now I know - thanks!

Ann said...

So when you see a kitty that is a little on the fat side, does that mean that maybe their stink organ isn't working?

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I liked your visual aid, Harley! Good teachers always use visual aids and you are a very good teacher!

The Meezers or Billy said...

Nicky's stink organ is HUGE! thanks for the informashun Harley! that was furry inneresting

DailyGs said...

If that is the case we think that Gracie has an extra ginorous Stink Organ!

Harley, do you s'pose that is why digesting and disgusting are kinda almost the same word?

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

MOL~!!! That's a great way to think of it. We think Cricket's Stink Organ is the size OF her innards!

Simba said...

That explains a lot, Harley. I love your scientific diagram, and your eyeys!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Harley, you are so smart! Wowsie...how did you get a picture of your insides like that??? MOL

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Harley... you make a good demo cat. thanks for the explanation.

Have a great day.

Kea said...

Excellent diagram, Harley! We're very impressed with your teaching.

P.S. Our human thought that cats on raw didn't have much of a stink organ. (A co-worker who feeds raw told her that, but maybe it depends on the cat or what kind of protein?)

Mr. Pip said...

How did you get to be so smart, Harley???

Your pal, Pip

Pandafur said...

Wowza Harley you iz so smart, I nevar did know abowt teh stink organ but now i unnerstand teh hole thing!

Ramses said...

Oh now that was really interesting, you sure do know lots of stuff! My Mummy says she thinks boy cats have bigger stink organs than girly cats, cause Tigs and I can make way more stink than them! ;) However we can't make cute kittens like Isis did at breakfast time on Tuesday... Boy do they smell interesting! :)

Purrs,
Ramses

Pierro said...

This is a verygood analysis.
Now we know how something so yummy can turn into something so smelly!

bonks you are a genius

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank you for the educational diagram Harley - it was not the best time for us to look at it though cos mum was eating her lunch!! ha ha !!
Please thank Daisy for her kind message yesterday.
Luv Hannah xx

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Haha, now I know how my yummy processed, thanks a quick biology mini course.
Cheers!

-d ma said...

now explain why didn't god make that the rose smelling organ rather than the stink organ...

Sharkbytes said...

Thank you for explaining that so clearly, Harley. I am a dog, but I think it works the same in us. Maggie the Vizsla

Marg said...

Oh Harley, that is such a good lesson on the stink organ. We love how you showed us with a little map. Good job.
Have a great day.

A Bay Horse said...

My husband must have a very large stink organ because he is stinky. I was always wondering. Thank you Harley!

Admiral Hestorb said...

Harley...you da MANCAT! A scientist..who KNEW! I love the lecture and the artwork is superb!

Please plan another,.we are all ears..er..eyes.

Busby and Raymond said...

Fascinating! We hope you do a post about hairballs next!

Maya said...

this is a very scientific investigation, Harley.
Now i know how it works :)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Now that is the most interesting explanation we've ever heard. Good detecting, Harley!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

It's good to address delicate issues, Harley! Thanks for elucidating that for us!

The Crew said...

Thank you for that very scientific explanation, Harley. That explains why Max's bombs make Mom's eyes water. He has a very large Stink Organ.

Jacqueline said...

You are such a silly character, Harley; thanks for the science lesson, we don't have to wonder about that anymore!...kisses and hugs adorable boy...Calle, Halle, Sukki

StarSpry said...

Thanks for sharing that information, Harley! I especially liked the demonstration cat :)

Junior and Orion said...

Wow! A stink organ! Mine must not work very well, and Orion's works overtime!

Junior

Janet said...

This was very informative, Harley! You are one smart kittie!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Harley, I never knew this until today. Thanks for the stinky post :)

Grace said...

So funny!

Aoise said...

It makes perfect sense when you fink about in. Food in. Goodness extracted, then left overs given bad smell and pooped out. Cheers Harley !

"Lois Grebowski" said...

hubby has a stink organ, too! hahahahahahahahahahaha! but then he also says I've got one as well...

:-)

Puglette said...

wow! i never knew, but it certainly makes sense. i wonder if there is an operation that can remove the stinky adding thingy. some doctor would be very rich if they figured this out.
hugs,
puglette
:o)

Pricilla said...

Harley, what would we do without you explaining all these things - but you missed three stomachs!

Goat have 4 stomachs you know!

Bonnie Story said...

Wow, that explains it all, Harley!! God job. Let's not forget the last step of leaving the Kitty Roca in the sandbox. And covering up carefully. Key step.

Cat said...

Wow Harley, you're like a scientist-cat. It would be good to get a research grant (treats) for further study on your theories.

Harry Spotter said...

Thanks for the interesting science lesson. YOu make a beautiful model. Your insides are cool. The stink organ works well with Harry and Fiona.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow Harley thanks for telling us that - we used to think it was just magic or something but we are glad to know that is really is science and stuff!

Hey, do you think you could maybe try and figure out the telephone some time and explain it? WE don't get how it works at all - we know it can't be like the TELEVISION but it kind of sounds like TELEVISON, and you explained everything so well on the television and eveerything else (we even went back to read about babies when we got our new brother and sister - we think it has to be the same with kittens and babies - oh but if not let us know please) and we know you will be able to figure it out!!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh we also had to tell you that you are one of our Friday Friends - we know you have a ton of visitors already but we still wanted to have you!

Sparkle said...

I do not like the stink organ!

the casbah kitten said...

I think Alice has an extra stink organ...she has TWO! We think explaining hairballs would be great! You're so smart Harley.

Eric and Flynn said...

Thank you Harley for explaining that too us. We wondered why our delicious food went stinky like that.

Trixie said...

I didn't know we all had a stink organ! That's probably why Bouncie used to stink up the place.

Katnip Lounge said...

Harley, we must be defective! We only poop roses and rainbows.

No, really!

Anna said...

Yep Harley! I think you are on to something!

Angus Mhor said...

I must say, Harley, I certainly appreciate your graphical elucidation of the workings of our innards..now I can PROVE that I don't do it ON PURPOSE!

New Jersey Memories said...

You are very, very smart, Harley, in addition to being so handsome. I learn a lot from you. What a stud.

Angel and Kirby said...

Not all stink organs are created equal. I, Angel, must have a very small one cause mp Poop does not stink, But brother Mac! Whew!

Skeezix the Cat said...

Harley, do sum cats have more than one stink organ? Cuz I think I have abowt eleventy of them. I'd be willing to donate sum of them to cats (like Daisy) hoo were born withowt stink organs.

Sinseerly,
Skeezix the Cat

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Wow! That is really interesting stuffs about our insides!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Harley, we fink yoo shud become a Professor.

Keiko said...

Harley, you are so clever! Mummy says our stink organs all work differently and she can tell our poopies apart even if she doesn't actually SEE us do them...

the booker man said...

miss amy and her kitties sent us over to visit, and i gotta say, you are way full of the smarticles for a kitty! thanks for the informational on digestion! does it work the same way for doggies? cuz, boy howdy, does my big sis asa make some stinky poopers. egads!
*woof*
the booker man

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Wow! A scientist in our midst! Thanks for the clear lesson on digestion...you made the whole concept to...well...easy to digest! Amy and The House of Cats sent me over to say "hi!" Visit me if you get the chance.

Ayla and Iza, said...

That is AMAZIN Harley! We will haf ta ask TBT if we can have a stinkerectomy operatshun...

Ayla and Iza, said...

Ooh, we meant ta add: Thanks fer the CAT scan of yer innards! That helped us unnerstand much better...

Gattina said...

Wow ! after this scientific explanation, I feel like a savant ! No I finally know why poop stinks, hahaha !

meowmeowmans said...

Harley, you are one smart dude. We've always wondered how digestion works!

The Furry Bambinos said...

Harley, thank you for explainifying that to us! We think that The Itteh Bitteh Foster Kittehs must have VERY LARGE stink organs.

Extremely LARGE.

Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, and Caramel

JD at I Do Things said...

Ahhh, the STINK organ! That explains a lot. Do you think it's possible for a cat's stink organ to be on the outside? Because Pru's butt just never stops stinking.
