Are you fluent in floofin' cat talk, hooman? All good purr-ents should know their floofs from their boops! Have a peek at our top 10 cute cat words and learn about the wonderful world of internet cat slang.

10. Smol

The word smol is used to decribe something purr-ticularly cute and tiny. Fur example, little kittens are very smol and should be kept safe and happy at all times, especially outdoors! Have a peek at how that's done here.

9. Feetsies

Feetsies is the word used to describe a cat's feet. Cute cat feetsies can be curled up or bunny style and with or without socks.

8. Cat Loaf

A cat loaf occurs when a cat tucks their feetsies under their body so that they resemble an adorable loaf of bread. This position is most often used for effective cat-napping.

7. Cat Taps

Cat taps occur when a cute cat gently and repeatedly taps any object, hooman or fur-sibling to get the attention they rightly deserve. When you see a cat tapping, it's time to purr-lay, hooman! Have a peek at 5 fun and easy ways to play with your fur baby here.

6. Boop

A boop occurs when a hooman, purr-ent or fur-sibling lightly taps a cat's nose, also known as a snoot or meowzzle. Head boops are when a cat shows love by nudging their head on the object of their affection. Have a peek at the other ways cats show love here!

5. Mlem

A mlem occurs when a cat's tongue licks their snoot, their fur, their water, the air or just about anything else. If your kitty is mleming too much, it may be a sign of stress or anxiety. Have a peek here to find out.

4. Blep

A blep is that cute moment when a cat tongue sits stationery outside of their mouth for a time. While they may look silly, all cat purr-ents know that the mind of a cat is always busy devising a new cunning plan... or maybe they've just had too much catnip.

3. Teefies

Teefies is the name for the tiny little teeth of a cat and can include the pointy and fierce canines and the itsy-bitsy incisors. Keep 'em pearly with our guide to kitty cat dental care here.

2. Toe Beans
