Feline Friday: Nin as a verb

Nin in the tunnel
As a kitten and a younger man, Nin had a problem. Everyday he would eat so much he would throw up. He didn't seem to know he was full. We tried a variety of foods etc. but it kept happening so we learned to live with it. We started calling this "ninning." Now whenever anyone or any creature in our lives eats too much or mysteriously throws up, we refer to it as "ninning" or that someone "ninned."

Nin's eating issues have decreased greatly in his old age, although he throws up about once a week, often a hairball.

I realize he is not getting younger and someday we will say goodbye, but I am confident his legacy of "ninning" will live on.

Has your pet become a verb in your house?


  1. Oh Nin......I have been a "ninner" (!!) since I was a baby too.....I just eat too fast and WHAM - it that I'm older I still do it but maybe not as often as before - just like you......I'm sure my Mom will always remember my "horking" (that's what we call it in my house) even after I've left for the Bridge too......a bit of an interesting legacy don't you think???

  2. No verbs here as we are prefect little dears ...... LOL. I do however do some ninning when I eat grass and peeps gets fed up with me. Have a fabulous Friday.

    Best wishes Molly

  11. We had one verb. We had a dog named Rover, and he would run so fast around the curves in the trails that he'd almost lose control and end up in the forest. So, we call that "Rovering" the curves!

    Nin does tunnels? Cool.
