Mom’s Smart….

I was just lying outside tonight thinking about really important things.  Before you say it, Shakespeare….I was NOT thinking about treats.  Anyway, as I went over things in my kitty brain, it suddenly dawned on me how spooky smart Mom is.


Remember the other night when Mom brushed and brushed and brushed me?

Sure, I was downstairs taking a nap where it’s cool.

You missed out on something really nice.  Anyway, I was so happy that Mom spent that much time with just me.  So, during the night I thought I would return the favor.  I kept trying to groom Mom’s hair all night long and she kept moving around and kept telling me to stop so she could sleep.

She said she wasn’t real happy with you ‘cuz she had to go to work really tired.

Well, she figured out what I was thinking and why I kept trying to groom her hair that night.  She knew I was just trying to repay the favor.  Now she doesn’t spend as much time brushing me ‘cuz she wants to get some sleep.  She said she’ll do the long sessions of brushing on the weekends.

Boy, Mom really is smart.

I think I’ll probably still groom her hair ‘cuz I love her and want to take care of her.

I lick her fingers and arms to make sure they’re clean.

We all have our different ways of showing love, don’t we?

Yes, now let’s get back to playing outside before the rain comes.


I love to be brushed!  I think it’s a fun game that Mom and I play.  Shakespeare hates to be brushed so he misses out on the game.

I don’t want anyone touching my fur.  It’s too beautiful as it is.

You could use a little brushing.  You pick up leaves and grass and stuff when you’re outside.

Well, unlike you, I manage to get my fur cleaned all by myself.

That’s silly.  You could get brushed and you would feel so good.  Last night Mom brushed and brushed and brushed me.  She said I had a couple of knots that she wanted to get out.

She brushed out enough fur to build another kitty.

I know.  I feel so thin now!

You’re not thin!

You’re just jealous ‘cuz Mom spent so much time brushing me.  I just wonder why all that fur comes out of me.  Is it because it’s so hot and I don’t need it?  Will it grow back in when it gets cold?  Is that why humans have to wear all those clothes…….’cuz they don’t have fur?  I think it’s much better to have fur.  Yes, getting brushed is about as good as when humans go to a spa and get a massage.

What do you know about that?

I read things on the internet.  The internet never lies…… least that’s what it says on the internet.
