Remember Rich Hall from “Not Necessarily the News” and”Saturday Night Live” back in the 80’s? He’s the guy who came up with Sniglets:

Sniglet (snig’ lit) n.
Any word that doesn’t appear in the dictionary, but should.

Sniglets came to mind today, as I was scritching Spooky’s backside and he achieved the highest elevator butt I’ve seen in a long time. So of course, that brought to mind:

Caltitude (kal’tih tood) n.
The height to which a cat’s rear end can rise to meet the hand stroking it.

I believe Spooky reached about 4 or 5 inches of caltitude today, maybe 6. I’ll have to get out a tape measurer next time. That must be a record.
