Flurffs !

I sometimes address Iella as Fluff, or Fluffs and a couple of days ago, I wondered what the Norwegian word for fluff was - her being a Norwegian Forest Cat and all. So I tried Google translate, and at first thought I'd some something wrong, as it didn't seem to be translating. After a bit of trial and error, I establish that the Norwegian word for fluff, is in fact, fluff.

Apparently, Norwegian has a small vocabulary, so I guess there's now a fair proportion of loan words from other languages used. Fluff, fluffs and fluffy are all the same in English and Norwegian. Though the pronounciation on Google has the U sounded deeper than in English, coming more from the throat. So Iella is now called Flurffs sometimes.

And here's a picture of her looking very flurffy.


No sense of dignity, that cat, eh ?

Awwww, adorable!

The Itty-Bitty Kitty Committee lady uses "floof" and "floofy" so naybe she heard it somewhere.

She's much more demure than Jasmin.

Hee, hee. I love that pic of Jasmin. I think she's watching something like the Jerry Springer show, and there really should be a can of cheap American beer and a bag of crisps or tortilla chips beside her.

That's a great photo! Got to be begging for a bag of something or a tub of popcorn to be photoshopped in! ;-)

I've seen her do it again since, too. :-P
