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.
