Full Monty (Q) Friday

When I saw Monty Q lying like this on the floor:
I thought of dear Gizzy, who used to do the very same thing.

Turns out Marie lies like this too. Skittles suggested that we should call the pose the MontyQ.

Next, when the cat in question lies on his back, showing, well, everything, like this:
it should be called the Full Monty. Here's a picture of Donny doing the Full Monty:
Yesterday MontyQ demonstrated the Full Monty himself. You can go look for yourself.

So whaddya think, cats of the blogosphere? Have we got a New Standard Cat Term?

I *don't* do the MontyQ, but I present the Full Monty to my family when I'm feeling particularly safe and secure. I approve these terms.

Dragonheart said...

The Full Monty is definitely the appropriate name for that position! As for the Monty Q, I am amazed that other cats can lie like that - wow!

Karen Jo said...

I love both terms. I think that we do have new standard cat terms.

Kimo & Sabi said...

WE has not mastered da MontyQ, but we can do the full monty real good!

Derby said...

Good term, but we have to be careful between the Monty and the Monte. One will give the lady's a thrill.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

I think that both are awesome New Standards! Great idea Millie.

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

I think it's perfect! I think Mommy got some pictures of the furballs demonstrating the poses and will add those. Also, thanks for letting us know about Poppy Q.
