You asked/I answered!

A number of our friends an' readers were curious 'bout INVISA-BISCUITS, so I'm re-running this post in order to 'splain it to efurryone ...

Here's another informative vocabulary lesson to build your FELINE LEXICON ...

From DaisyMae's Feline Dictionary of Terms and Phrases, the phrase of the day is:

MAKIN' INVISABISCUITS (verb) ... may kin in viz uh biss kitz ... A derivation of "makin' biscuits" when a feline kneads a stationary object using his/her front paws in a rhythmic manner simulating early kittenhood behavior with the sole purpose of stimulating milk dispersal from a lactating queen.

When a feline "makes invisabiscuits," s/he is recumbant and kneads the air while purring in a blissful manner.

Note: Invisabiscuits are not to be confused with the very foul and flatulent "air biscuits."

Sentence example:
1. When he's especially relaxed (or high on 'nip!), Sparky Fuzzypants likes to tempt Mom to pet him by makin' invisabiscuits and purring like a misfiring lawnmower.


Sparky Fuzzypants is the only one of the Feline Americans who makes invisa-biscuits on a regular basis. Mom sometimes calls him "Mister Biscuits" which sends him into orbit. He'll lay on his side with his front feet in the air an' he'll knead a whole pan full of invisa-biscuits just for Mom.

I did NOT know that about invisabiscuits-I asked my mom if I do that and she said that I rarely make biscuits she CAN see, much less invisible ones-she'd like a whole pan of 'em, too!

That is a very good term - we don't do that tho - We have missed your DMM's Dictionary time. We learned so many wonderful words that way.

Have a happy weekend.

Mom and Dad say that Clyde (one of the cats that came before us) did this too. Mom and Dad referred to it as "The Paw Thing". :-)
