Jackson Galaxy is back and this week he's asking the question, do cats lick us our of affection...or obsession?
Check out more Jackson Galaxy videos here!
And no one seems to be talking about it!
There are "illuminated manuscripts" that were created by Medieval monks that are holy books, filled with beautiful and meaningful works of art. And sometimes, the Medieval monks would just draw cats...licking their butts.
I know what you're thinking, basically we are thinking it too, "Why?"
No one really seems to know for sure. Apparently, butt licking cats is a weirdly common theme in medieval art. There is one theory that we also believe in, that theory is these cats were just etched in the margins by bored monks who did so to amuse themselves. Remember that scene in Superbad, where the main character had a fascination with drawing a certain phallic part of the male anatomy?
Perhaps, this is sort of like that. Perhaps the idea of sneaking these lewd cats into these holy books was just a funny inside joke that the monks would pass along, and on those particularly long and boring days, scribble pictures of cats taking care of their basic hygiene.
In the end, we'll probably never learn the truth but in the meantime, we can enjoy the art.
First, Find a mirror. Now stare at it and on the count of three stick out your tongue. You'd probably think that's kind of silly. However, what may be silly coming from us, is completely adorable coming from animals. Laugh with us with these adorable animals who love to lick windows and steal your heart.
There are several reasons why cats lick each other. They can be for hygiene purposes, to transfer their scent or to help detect a health problem. In this AnimalWised video, they explain in more detail why cats lick each other and help you understand their feline language a little better.
Definitely one of the strangest things we have heard lately but Hey, it's better than coughing up hair balls hours later.
The product started raising money on Kickstarter last year and 2,022 backers have already pledged $52,179 to help bring this project to life. So if Have you ever wanted to lick your cat, Now you can.
