Kitty Cleans Up

Saturday I was taking pictures of pumpkin puree on top of my washing machine (don’t ask, you’ll see later in the week) when I turned around and beheld this:

Kitty had positioned herself perfectly in a patch of sunlight (a warm spot, of course) with angelic light surrounding her.

*cough cough*

Ok, so she’s not so angelic, but she looked it for a few minutes anyway. You know how you see something every day, but don’t really see it?  I downloaded these into my computer and noticed how soft her fur looks in the sun.

And how long her tongue is…

It’s like she’s got a roll of toliet paper in there and she’s unrolled it out. 

Harland:  It’s toliet paper to her. You know how after she comes out of the litter box and the first thing she does is lick her b-

MeNevermind!  This is a family website.  ……Anyway, I’m not sure how this cleaning technique gets the job done:

I watched her lick her arm and rub it all over her face and ears for about 5 minutes,

and then I touched her, thinking she would be damp, but she was dry. No spit. So how does this work?  Clearly it does, otherwise she’d be walking around with a clean body and dirty head. 

Kitty:  I know, but I’m not telling.

    Do you know what I think is the cutest thing about Kitty? That dark spot on her nose! It is utterly charming.

    Those are wonderful pics of her in the sunshine! Sometimes when my siamese licks too long on one spot he feels damp. How do I know? Cause I keep touching it just to watch him wash the human off his precious self!

      ha ha…we do the same thing….We can almost hear her thinking, “crap, that human touched me, now I have to clean there again” Tee hee, the fun you can have with a cat.

    Lovely feline photos! At first, I thought maybe the kitty’s name was “pumpkin puree”! I have watched in fascination as our cat’s groom themselves. Their rough sandpaper tongues evidently are designed for that!
