Must Clean Toes

Must Clean Toes

Kelly carefully washes between each toe on one paw, then methodically continues with the rest, her tail happily curled in a semi-circle as she enjoys the spring sunshine.

I’m glad I don’t have to lick my toes clean. Even though I’ve watched my cats for years, I still can’t figure out how they keep themselves so clean by licking themselves. Kelly is a constant bather, and knowing her fastidious personality I’ve always thought she was trying to organize all her tortoiseshell speckles into some sort of order.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

    My feline half-bro and sis, are constantly doing project lick. They tell me I shouldn’t depend on my human to keep me bathed, well… I may be a bit odoriferous at times, but… I don’t have trouble with hairballs coming up at the wrong times. Uck!
