Seeing the tongues of Thorin and Tyrion can make one wonder what we know about a cat’s tongue. Their tongues feel different to those of other animals which leads to a whole other set of questions, however, their tongues have unique qualities and important functions.

For one, it’s essential for their health, it keeps cats clean and regulates their body temperature, their tongues also go against the law of gravity when they drink, the tip touches the water and darts back up into its mouth, creating a stream of water behind it. The color of the tongue can even tell us if a cat is getting enough oxygen. The vet will also check a cat’s tongue carefully as cats are prone in getting tongue cancer.
