Bathtime on Tuesday

I was bathing in my favorite bath spot, on top of the stereo receiver, and Mom brought out the camera and started taking pictures. Humans are strange, aren't they? Anyway, that's all right: I don't mind sharing my beauty routine.

For proper bathing, it helps to be limber and flexible:

Often, a girlcat has to wash quickly and vigorously to make her leg fur lie just right:

And here I am, washing in what Mom calls the Kitty Drumstick Position:

So did I miss a spot? Mickey, darling, would you mind checking?

And here I am, sending Mickey a poem. I hope you enjoy it, dear.

from "i carry your heart with me" by e. e. cummings

"...i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you"

Very nice grooming technique, Marilyn. I'm sure Mickey will be impressed.

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Wow....you are one foxy lady! Don't worry Mickey, I'm not trying to steal your girl, but she is HOT!

Watch out for the flashy box....once it comes out it never goes away.

Excellent grooming technique. I'm betting that those pictures will make Mickey have urjes.


Daisy said...

Marilyn, you are a good groomer! I am going to start calling that the Kitty Drumstick position now, too!

Karen Jo said...

I love your Mom's name for that position. It just sounds so right. You look beautiful after your bath.

We love the smile on your face in the last picture. You look so satisfied with yourself!!

Mom's love taking pictures of us, don't they. Hum, drumstick position. That could be a cat yoga position. Thanks for sharing your de-stressers with us.
Be blessed,
Samantha, Tigger and Mom

Jeter and Mickey said...

Dear Marilyn,
Those are very exciting shots of you! There is nothing better than a very clean ... pure white kitty!
I wish you could see my face ... I'm smiling!
...and what a poem. I carry your heart in mine.

Hey Marilyn, what CDs do you listen to while you groom?
