#FurryFives : wash your human

Now then, girls, these are challenging times, so it’s important to keep your human clean! Let’s illustrate with the arm. First, give it a good sniff to check what kind of train-wreck you’re going to be dealing with…

Then take a deep breath and rasp the tongue along the length of that rascal!

Don’t be afraid to give it a little bite to get the cat juices flowing!

Take frequent breaks and hold the limb still while you focus on the remaining work..

Remember, the job’s not finished till the thumb’s done! Get the tongue out and w-a-s-h that digit!

Job done! Now for a little ‘me-time’ and a wait for the ‘well done’ stroke. Your human lives to fight another day…

#FurryFives : tea in bed

(From an interview with R-CatZ Magazine)

Mag: So, Miss Misti, how are you enjoying your life in the Lake District?

Miss Misti: Oh, cool. I mean, so much better than that bush in Bolton!

Mag: I can see! And you get early morning tea in bed, too!

Miss Misti: Comes with the celebrity… And I got two staff as well! That’s his hand I’m snoozing on. She’s busy tapping that screenie thing, as usual.

Mag: And do you have feline company too?

Miss Misti: Naw.. don’t want competition!. Mind you, I got the two moggies next door cowering… but I got my own Collie dog as a pet!

Mag: Well, Miss Misti, we’ll leave you to luxuriate…

Miss Misti: Thanks. I’ll be due a second cup of tea, soon. Suppose I’d better release his hand!

#FurryFives – Tabletop Racer

Misti: “Boring, boring…. uh-uh, I feel a transformation coming on!”

Misti: “Out of the pits and onto the long, ‘address label’ straight…”

Misti: Reaching over 100 mph just before paper brook – will she brake in time or spin off?

Misti: “Ooops! Its a race marshal… and he’s not pleased!”

Misti: “Sigh…I didn’t know there was a sin-bin in motor racing”
