A Little Washing Up

Before Kitty got sick, we used to make fun of her for all the cleaning she did – constant grooming and licking, licking, licking. Harland figured she must have some sort of OCD.  But we were proven wrong in the first few days of her illness. She had a fever, was vomiting and lethargic, and she didn’t do any cleaning for a couple days. We noticed that her fur was kinda dirty-looking and appeared to be oily.

We stood over her and remarked, “Wow, all that cleaning IS necessary.”

Kitty:   “That’ll teach ya’ for making fun of me.”

(Pictures taken this morning.)


Me:  “Yes, Your Royal Fluffiness.”





Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Oh my she is really going at it. I love to touch a place they have already done and watch them do it again to get the “human” off. It is true sick cats don’t groom. I also noticed alot of cats in shelter cages don’t either. Maybe its a stress thing. Glad she’s back!
