Purrpare to take a licking.

Furst we has a little nibble.

Then we cooncentrate on the ear.

Extend tongue to top of the head and wash thoroughly.

Dry the head with toe tufts, and rinse your tongue.

Display clean head for all to see!

Dante, although a tried-and-true mancat, has distinct maternal tendencies towards Dylan. Not only are they best furiends, but Dante takes Dylan under his wing (so to speak) and gives him a good licking from time to time.

You can see the affection between them as Dante wraps his paws around Dylan's neck to hold him in place for the duration of the catwash. There is absolutely no resistance on Dylan's part because of his total trust for Dante.

What better way to illustrate the love and hygienic rites between two manly mancats on this Mancat Monday! Dante is the groom and Dylan, the groomed.

We do that... Except with Gandalf it's more of a "sit there until I say I'm done with you, Grayson" kind of a thing.

What a sweet post! Well washed, Mancats!

The Island Cats said...

That's very nice of Dante to give Dylan a bath...Wally usually starts bathing Ernie...and Ernie puts up with it for a little bit...but then a fight breaks out resulting in a rousing game of Thundering Herd of Elephants!

The Monkeys said...

It's very cute that Dante has a protege like Dylan who seems to be a very willing student!

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

Cute, and well done on the demo.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Shaggy is like that too with both Scooby & Scout. Of course Scooby & Shaggy are littermates and Shaggy has been taking care of him his whole life, and when Scout came to us as a wee kitten, Shaggy got busy right away with the lickin'!
