Groomin'.....On A Sunday Afternoon

Some animals just don't appreciate the time and effort we cats put into grooming. We don't go out in the backyard and just go to the bathroom anywhere. We don't chase cars. We don't roll on our backs in our poop. It just isn't done.

Now, don't get me wrong, I like all animals and especially dogs. To use an old Caucasian expression, some of my best friends are dogs. It's just that when it gets down to cleanliness, I'd like to think that cats are just a step above the rest of the animal world. Yes, it's true that we can be a bit picky and finicky at times, but I've observed this in many species. I think this just separates the thoroughbreds from the saddle horses, if you get my drift.

For those of you who may dismiss my feline thoughts as self-serving and narcissistic, you may want to withhold those thoughts until you have watched the following video.

I't seems the pup was ok with the grooming part but from his reaction, he'll handle the washing of the private parts, thank you!

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep. Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it. He told them to go way and let him get some sleep, but they persisted until he finally gave in. He said, "OK, follow me," and flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him.

Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest of trees. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him. He said, "Do you see that tree over there?" The bats, all in a flurry screamed, "yes, Yes Yes!" He said, "Good, because I didn't!"

A circus owner walked into a shop to see everyone crowded around a table watching a little show. On the table was an upside down pot and a duck tap dancing on it. The circus owner was so impressed that he offered to buy the duck from its owner. After some wheeling and dealing, they settled for $5,000 for the duck and the pot.

Three days later the circus owner runs back to the shop in anger, "Your duck is a rip-off! I put him on the pot before a whole audience and he didn't dance a single step!" The duck's former owner said, "Hmmm...., Did you remember to light the candle under the pot?"

As a butcher is shooing a dog from his shop, he sees $10 and a note in his mouth, reading: "10 lamb chops, please." Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag of chops in the dog's mouth, and quickly closes the shop. He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light, look both ways, and trot across the road to a bus stop. The dog checks the timetable and sits on the bench.

When a bus arrives, he walks around to the front and looks at the number, then boards the bus. The butcher follows, dumbstruck. As the bus travels out into the suburbs, the dog takes in the scenery. After awhile he stands on his back paws to push the "stop" button, then the butcher follows him off. The dog runs up to a house and drops his bag on the stoop.

He goes back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself -Whap!- against the door. He does this again and again. No answer. So he jumps on a wall, walks around the garden, beats his head against a window, jumps off, and waits at the front door.

Finally, a big guy opens it and starts cursing the dog. The butcher runs up screams at the guy: "What the hell are you doing? This dog's a genius!" The owner responds, "Genius, my ass. It's the second time this week he's forgotten his key."

That's Possum's Journal for now. More soon.
