Meowmie haz been Reminissing abowt past Krissmissiz, and in partikewlar Miss Princess -- who surtanlee MUST have a SPLENDIFERRUS tree to Climb Up There in Kitty Hevvin.
She wuz brushin me dis morning and she tole me a true story:
"Madama Cee Cee", she sez...."Let me tell yoo ALL abowt Groomin and Zoomin"
You remembur my beloved Miss Princess -- she would RUN into the bathroom at the word "BRUSH!" She would stand on the toilet seat, front paws on the sink and let me brush her with the slicker brushes (one on each side, held parallel to her body so they didn't dig in). She would purr purr purr and grab the brush and brush her cheeks with it. I taught her the meaning of "Right" and "Left" (wich, Madama Cee Cee I am awlso tryin to teech YOO!), and when I said either word to her, she'd move her little head to one side of the other so I could brush her cheeks again. Every so often we would touch noses and I'd give her a kiss on her frowzy head. Then I'd take the natural bristle brushes and lightly dampen them and go over her with them -- this time brushing her belly as well. Sometimes I'd use the Zoom Groom on Miss P, but she REALLY loved to pick up the Zoom Groom in her mouf and drop it on da floor!!! Then came the hairball gel and she'd lick it off my finger, jump off the seat and Big Bad Baby Twinkle would come stomping in ("Hairdo!") while Princess waited.
You see, if BBBT didn't eat ALL her hairball gel, Miss P would finish it for her!! I always made BBBT wait until Miss P got brushed first -- Miss P was the queen of my kitties."
Ah yes Meowmie, I remembur Da Queen and how I miss her -- even tho she usta SLAAP me sillee!!
"Dat nefarriuss BBBT duzzint't put her paws on the sink. She just sits there on the toilet seat, in all her huge glory (she's 30 inches nose to tail), tail THUMPing against the garbage pail if she has to wait for me to get started. She too LOOOVES to grab the slicker brusshiz and gently brushes her cheeks with them. She gives me Hedd Butts and sumtimes she likk likk likkks MY hare while I am brushing her!! Since she is SOOO HEWGE she doesn't always reach her buttius when she washes herself, so I use a non-alcohol baby wipe for that."
Meowmie gentlee brusht my looong POOOOFY tale, and sed "Now I also have Sweet Cee Cee, who RUUUNS to me, long hair swishing to and fro, when I yell 'BEEE-OOOTY Parlor!' Cee Cee is a former feral, who, from the very furst day she came to live with me (she may have been someone's "throwaway") she LOVED to be brushed and was terrified of almost everything else. We both enjoy these brushing sessions -- initially I had to wear rubber gloves because she would grab at the brush and at me, and she doesn't know how to retract her claws. But she has grown into a much serener kitty, with love and patience from me."
I Ack-ed my agrreemint to dat and promisst I'd try not to hide when peepul (STRANGERS!!!!AGH!) came over to vizit Meowmie.
Now when Meowmie goes to brush HER hair there is usually a little face anxiously looking at her (snikker snikker!) , so MEOWMIE'S brushes also have some cat hair on them.
PS -- it's really easy to clean the hair off the slicker brushes and the other brushes -- Meowmie uses a wet Ace comb to comb thru the brush. She saves some of their hairs in separate containers. You see, Princess is gone (Cancer, 2005); some of her fur is in her urn, and Meowmie wears a little of Miss P's fur inside a pretty drawstring bag on a string around hur neck. The bag is near Meowmie's heart -- she and I miss our beloved Princess so very much.
