A kitty is thought to be "making biscuits" when they knead soft dough with their front paws. Some kitties are advance biscuit makers and can also knead with the back paws too.
The dough? Well, any soft substance will do, blankets, etc. but the best dough is tender human flesh.
The more tender the better, less work to soften it up. Sometimes you knead the biscuit dough to make your future nap spot just the way you like it, pliable and soft, and sometimes you make biscuits when you're enjoying your pets (these are happy paw biscuits).
For me, no dough is better than the soft,
I purr so loud that I don't even hear "Seriously cat, can you move those paws around? I'm numb in that spot." I like to concentrate on one perfectly tenderized spot.
I don't make biscuits as often as I used to, Mom is pretty tender, but I do have my moments. Sometimes I forget myself in the process and remember being a tiny kitten with Mother Tabby. It's a nice memory.
Anyone else love making biscuits?
Is it a girl thing? Coz over here only Angelina and Nicole make them biscuits. har har har *evil laughs*
I like (looking around and whispering) boob biskits. Smushy! xoxoReplyDelete
Fin, us kitties here in Va. definiely love making biscuits. We are old but we have memories of our moms too and use the old woman here to make them on. (We mean the getting old woman or..well...that woman!!) Lots of love and here's to making lots more biscuits!! Love, Angel & LillyReplyDelete
YOu describe the biscuit-making so well, Fin. I am very like Prancer with my biscuit action - Mom call sit "pushaboobie!ReplyDelete
Binga is a four-footed biscuit maker. I'm very dainty and I only use my front paws. And we are not allowed to do it on my human unless she is covered with a blanket. Which is just fine with us - she's too tough and would be an awful lot of work.ReplyDelete
In this household, only Cosmo makes biscuits. He can make biscuits in whatever position he might be in....ReplyDelete
Festus loves to make boob biscuits! Mama trys to shift him to other places but he always goes back to the boobs.ReplyDelete
We do love to make biscuits too. WE don't do Mom as much as we used to since she has gotten old and tough. But we knead the bed so it is soft for her to sleep in. Too funny Fin. Good memories.ReplyDelete
I never had an experience on human fresh. I only use my front paws and do on my pawrents' dressing gowns and only do on night time when everyone sleep. When I've done I'm sleep on top of it. I really want to call " Make My Own Bed " because that what it was : )ReplyDelete
Alfie is biscuit king in our howse. he does biscuits on mom EVERY day! :sheesh:ReplyDelete
All of us are bisuit making fools. The more tender the flesh, the better...ReplyDelete
Chumley used to make biscuits on the mom, or any blanket, and suckle too, so she has said. We don't. Nicki makes them on blankets, and Derry, who never made biscuits at all until more recently (learned from Nicki), will only do it for a few moments on a soft blanket. Annie would make biscuits too, but not for very long.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, I love to make biscuits. I almost always make them in my couch bed before I settle for a snooze. Lishy makes biscuits sometimes, but he always does it with very straight elbows. He looks like he is marching, it looks very funny. Fui has only ever done it twice that mum has seen, both when he was having cuddles in bed with mum.ReplyDelete
We both love making biscuits - the trouble is our mum is always complaining that we make ouchies on her - she's just a wimp!ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Tim loves to make the biscuits. Mom says this is how she knows when to trim his nails. Knead - ouch - knead - ouch. MOLReplyDelete
Fizz likes to make biscuits on humans too! She gets her head way down and gets really into it!ReplyDelete
While we're all pretty good at making biscuits here, Sister Gracie is a pro!ReplyDelete
Ahhh...what great memories, Fin. Some of us here still make biscuits, but we like Mom's tummy best 'cause it's nice and squishy.ReplyDelete
Fin, we can just imagine you, kneading away. Grayce is the chief Bean-kneader here, and she LOVES to tenderize Mommy's chesticals!ReplyDelete
When she's allowed to, that is.
I love to make biscuits! Especially on mama's boobs.ReplyDelete
oh you made us laugh about your mom's arm lol!!ReplyDelete
Cody used to ALWAYS make biscuits and my husband and I have noticed in the past month he seems to have closed up his bakery. Any ideas as to why this is?
:-D Except for Minnie, we're all "bakers" here. Our mom doesn't always appreciate it when we use her for the dough...ReplyDelete
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and Hollie
My biscuit making often includes little pinpricks with my claws because as you know dough does not rise well unless there is space for heat to escape.ReplyDelete
Mom says I am the best biscuit maker she has ever seen! ~WallyReplyDelete
Fin, I'm one of those cats that can make biscuits with my back feets too. And I ONLY like making biscuits on my mom's squishy arms. ~Ernie
Sounds like you've earned your Professional Biscuit Therapist license. I only make them on one particular blanket. Glogirly tries to cut down on the carbs you know.ReplyDelete
Glogirly LOVED your "street cred" remark. ; ) And you're right. It was a potentially harmful oversight on my part.
What a great post, all my kitties make biscuits, its usually how I find out they need their nails cut. My smallest and oldest cat loves to help me watch TV, when I lay on my tummy she will climb my up my leg and perch on my butt and kneed to her hearts content, I am hoping she is getting rid of all the cellulite, but somehow I dodn't think thats whats really happening. ;) Have a great week!!ReplyDelete
I love making biscuits! Mom doesn't mind because I have no claws and my paws are tiny.ReplyDelete
We love making biscuits here, too! :)ReplyDelete
Is that what's it's called? Our mama calls it kitty massage bec we only do it on her flesh and no where else. She loves it.ReplyDelete

I like making armpit biscuits and my litter-sister Cassiopeia makes biscuits in our mom's hair whe she sleeps at night! Mom lets both of us do this when we want to, but says our claws really hurt under her arm, and the hair thing can be annoying at 3am.ReplyDelete
Ralphie likes making boob and tummy biscuits, Nortin goes for the neck and face. Needless to say, the claws are kept short and smooth.ReplyDelete
