Slaine seems to have them, but I think I might just be nuts.

Yup, two of my kits are prone to them, have been ever since they were babies.

Huh.

Things you learn! Do they like to have their tummies rubbed when they have them? That's what Slaine seems to want.

Now and again Sophie gets them but they don't last that long. It sometimes happens after she's ate.

Yes, it seems to have stopped now.

So strange.

Such weird, wonderful little creatures.

Yeah Gizmo gets them every now and then. They usually last less than a minute.

Forrest used to get them at least once a week when he was smaller. Now at 9 months he rarely gets them. They only last a few minutes at most.

I've noticed it more in kittens too, I think it's cause they tend to eat fast.

Other animals I've seen with hiccups - dogs, geckos, toads, and a tiger salamander.

Ferris has gotten them. It's so cute, because he has no idea what is doing it.

But I don't even attempt to rub his belly - I like my fingers just as they are!

Yeah, Popsie gets them quite often. Usually right after eating or drinking. It's so funny because he'll be sitting there and his whole body will rock back and forth.

geckos, toads, and a tiger salamander - that sounds pretty awesome, actually.

Fun that we that in common with creatures so different from us!

Glad to know Stimpy isn't the only cat who gets hiccups. He's the only cat I've ever had that gets them.
