the zen of grooming

breathe deeply; recline; relax;

stick tongue out and catch a hank of fur;

disengage that brain!

move head upwards in long, sweeping motion;

lose yourself in the moment.

think of nothingness.

repeat many, many, many times.

meditate while ingesting furs;

what is the sound of one cat hurling?

Oh, Sam makes that sound all the time! He LOVES to give Mommy hairballs! :)

Great grooming techniques!

Wow, what a fabulous post about grooming. We thankfully don't have to worry about ingesting any fur.

What a fabulous moment of Zen.

The Crew said...

Ed, I highly recommend "hair ball formula" Iams. Mom thinks it's helped us cut down on the hurling.

Heh heh Ed! I assume exactly the same position when cleaning my floofy "ruff". Being floofy takes a lot of work, doesn't it?

it's all zen until Speedy sez yaaaaach...den dad yells and mom runs fur da paper towels.

Lux said...

That was very beautiful. Well, until the very end. ;-)

Hmmm...I'd like to know what that sounds like as well. The one perk of not being able to clean yourself is that you never have to worry about hairballs...lol!
