Spit-Shine Saturday

Kitties!


May Ling here.

It's important to stay clean.
You just never know when a snorgle or a petting might happen.
You don't want to offend your Person!
At least with Fur Odor.
(poop stink is different)

Organization is key.


First the Right side.


Then the Left.


Wash your eyes,


then your ears.


Get in there...gotta be able to hear mousies!


Wash the Cat Wax off your paw.


This may require a little work.


Attend to your nails.


Pbthbbbbt!
It's OK to spit out your nail sheaths.  Your Person will vacuum them up.


Major tongue extension is vital.


There, one last swipe, and I'm done!


Happy Saturday!


XX  May Ling

  1. May Ling, you did a fantastic grooming job! On the other hand, if I want to keep my human from woman-handling me so much, maybe I should STOP grooming. Just a thought.

  3. I wash daily but I have never heard of fur odor--except when I am putting my lovely scent on things and then I WANT to smell.

  24. Gosh May Ling, we are exhausted watching your washing menu. There is only one problem, our person doesn't vacuum. Now what do we do? Oh well just never mind we will still spit those nails out all over the place.
    We sure are glad you are clean and don't have any more fur smell. We sure don't want that. Take care.

  25. Thank you for that excellent tutorial on fur hygiene - we think we have been doing it all right but not necessarily in the right order!

  30. That's a great run-down of a cat washing. I do it much the same way except that I also lick my belly and pull my hairs when I do that. Sometimes I get white hairs in my teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is very good cleaning. I have made a note of that and will do my bestest to get a good routine like that :)

    ReplyDelete

  34. I love your style, May Ling! You have a great technique--love the spitting out the nails on the floor. I clean myself incessantly so consider myself somewhat of an expert. I approve of all your hygene tips!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You are so thorough, May Ling! Scarlett has a similar technique, but Melly only grooms one area for a second or two before bounding off to play.

  38. First off, I have never met a cat that smelled bad and I bet you are the cleanest animals around. You could give some lessons on grooming to a few people I have met. :) Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

  39. What on earth is a snorgle! It sounds delightful.

  40. Cleanliness is next to Bastliness. That was an excellent lesson. Thanks for the reminder about the ears--I'm a little lax in that department.
