Snout and About

Today we are going to learn about snouts. This is on account of I think "snout" is a funny word. The meaning of the word snout is: The projecting nose, jaws, or anterior facial part of an animal's head.
Let us study some different snouts. Here is a generic cat snout:
Now let us look at a Harley Quinn snout:
In case you are having trouble visualizing Harley's snout, here is his silhouette. You can see that Harley has a long snout!
Here is my snout:
I have a much shorter snout!

What sort of snout do you have?

Freya's Staff said...

Teego has a big snout that's ALWAYS where it shouldn't be!!!

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

Daisy, thank you for the lesson on snouts. My Lucky has a snout a little bit like Harley Quinn's and Shadow's is a lot like yours! And she is an all-black kitteh, so you wouldn't have to silhouette-ize her head to see it!

Mr Puddy said...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Abby, the dog said...

Spunky and Manny both have short snouts, but Abby's mine is huge! Woof! Woof!

Keisha said...

O hai! :) I has a snoot with brown and gray furs. I like to sniff things with my snoot. D.R. thinks mah snoot is adorable. :)

Marg said...

What a great lesson in snouts Daisy. We never gave any thoughts to our snouts. We will have to go around an measure everyone. But Daisy your snout is very attractive. So is Harley's. Take care.

Link Bartholomew said...

My handsome orange snout is more like Harley's than yours, Daisy. Thanks for the lesson, Ms. Curly Cat.

Abby Normal said...

We think "snout" is a lovely word. It's the sort of thing our Mum would encourage her friends to "say out loud" when alone.

Kitty said...

"Snout" what a funny word, it's not elegant enough to use for cats though, what do you think?

Our "snouts" are between your's and Harley's we think.

HMMM interesting. Not only do you have a much shorter snout but you also have a very well defined "Stop". Harley on the other hand lacks it. He has a "dish face" as we all call it in the conformation world because his is really sloping. Nothing wrong with that though. He's still a handsome hunk. HEE HEE

And if you're wondering what a "Stop" is...it is the part between the snout & the top of the head (think of forehead). Yours is almost at a 90 degree angle.

My kitty sista has a compact snout just like you too, Daisy. Mine is on the long-ish side.

Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Thanks for the snout lesson, Daisy! We think Tofu has a moderate snout.

Grace said...

Hmm - I have a kitty with a long snout and one with a short snout - maybe I need a third kitty with a medium snout.

Snout? We call it a snooter! We think that the longer the snout, the tinier the brain. Which makes Salem and Grayce and The Baby the Einsteins at our house!

The Cat From Hell said...

Fabulous snouts! Kozmo has a huge chin (for a cat) and Me, of course, has the perfect siamese profile!
Thanks for the snout out!

LP said...

Well the pups have muzzles so that is a whole other lesson, but we have beaks... I think.'Cause LP calls us Birds of a Feather always flocking together in our mischief making.So beaks, right? Leo and Tulip have longish beaks.Mitalee and Esme have sweet Daisy-like beaks.

Ariel said...

I have a small snout like you Daisy.Yet mom says I have a noisy snout.

Pierro said...

Both of you have very nice sillouettes -- Daisy yours is very perfectly Devon Rex-ish.
Harley, your jaw line is quite manly.

Miles is bigger than me by one pound!
He has a huge head and a big fat tail and huge paws. He is very sturdy built. I am very light and delicate just like a bumble bee,

we both have Cornish Rex muzzles and that means a big muzzle -- huge and powerfully mancatly and cornish!

bonks!

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

I have a round head so I have a short snout. Ayla is a wedgehead meezer an hers is so pointy she looks like a anteater (heh-heh). Marley has an "in our foodbowls" snout!

Daisy you look like quite the intellectual in your specs! I love it!

Your Daily Cute said...

This is an excellent study on snouts, Daisy! Pimp has kind of a square-ish snout. I think Moo's is short like yours, but I'll have to take a closer look and see... He hardly sits still long enough to study!

Honey the Great Dane said...

I've got a big, saggy, baggy, droopy, jowly one - hee! hee! (With LOTS of slobber!)

Slobbers,

These snouts are interesting. I think you got short changed a bit Daisy, but you are a cutie even with a short snout. That's better than a snozzola MOL
