Default Boop test

I've been thinking about that phrase I learned a few weeks ago, "Booping
the Hube", after Hubie sent some purrs to Captain for his sore leg.

So I decided to do a little test to see if my kitties are boopable.

Conveniently, both cats are resting on the sofa near me, after having worn
one another out with chasing and wrestling all afternoon.

Captain is closer, and within arm's length, so he got the first test.

"Boop!"

He didn't move.

"Boop!"

Nothing. He is SOUND asleep. His boop-meter appears to be temporarily
deactivated. I GUESS he's boopable.

Next came Stanley. He's a little farther away, and I had to lean to reach
him. My movement woke him from his slumber enough to make him open his
eyes.

"Boop!"

Little whiskers tickled my hand as he sniffed my finger.

"Boop!"

More sniffing of my boop finger. I could feel him purring. Stanley is
DEFINITELY boopable. )

So we have one inconclusive result, and one "Yes" result. I'll have to run
another boop test on Captain when he's something resembling conscious.

Donna and the tired twosome known as Captain and Stanley

P.S. Captain just turned so that he's doing an upside-downy head, so I
thought he might be waking a bit. Nope. "Boop!" brought no response
whatsoever. Apparently he doesn't need to actually wake up to change
position.

On what part of the body do you perform a "boop"? I never figured that out
from the posts. I must have missed the original "Boop the Hube" description

I just tried it. I booped Persia on her wittle belly (but from the side).
Got the finger sniff. Booped again, she's looking at me like what *are* you
doing? Booped the other side and she said "MEOW???" LOL

Stinky is totally boop-resistant. All I get is the quizzical look.

IIRC, Hubie bats at the booping finger.

Aha. And here I've been applying boops to their flank. No wonder Captain
is displaying boop immunity. I'll have to give him a tummy boop and see if
that makes a difference.

Plus, I've just retested Stanley, who is napping next to me on the sofa.

"Boop!", said I, with my boop finger applied to his belly.

"Prrrt", answered Stanley, giving a stretch and going back to sleep. He's
still rated boopable. )

Donna, Captain, and Stanley the boopable furball

Awww, a boopable kitty is a wonderful thing. Hubert still gets booped
an awful lot; it's irresistible. :-)

I've been booping in the wrong spot, too! Will try again today

Some people are very boopable as well. Rob is not very boopable, he
f*rts when I boop him. Mike belches when I boop him, so is a marginal
boop at best. Mandy is VERY boopable. She about goes ballistic. Very
entertaining.
