Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness

"Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this by all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs aren't like this. A dog's idea of personal grooming is to roll in a dead fish." ~ James Gorman
Before a cat eats.... she washes. Before a cat plays with the catnip toy .... he washes. Before meals, before sleeping, before bird-washing.... the cats wash.

Sir Nicky

After exploring under the bed.... a cat washes. After being brushed ..... a cat washes. After being petted .... a cat washes. After a bath .... a cat bathes again.
In fact, before and after almost anything a cat does ..... he(she) washes.......

Miss Scarlett and Mr. Rhett

....... even if it isn't their own neck.

Miss Chloe and Miss Clover

...... and even if it isn't their own ear.

The cats are getting their coats ready to board Friday's Ark and will hopefully stay clean until the Carnival of the Cats, hosted this week by Pet's Garden Blog. (end of post)
