Cleansing of the forearm was focused on last week. So, today, Evan would like to give you all a demonstration on how to do a proper ear cleaning.
First you have to get the
washcloth paw nice and moist. Slobber up that tongue, guys, because this is going to get messy.
Apply slobber to ear. Scrub-a-dub-dub.
And you know what your mama always taught you - don't forget to scrub behind that ear!
Up and over. Way over. Don't worry, if you're a cat, your head will not pop off.
Mmmmm. Ear wax.
We hope everybuddy has some sun to bathe in today! Just don't forget to wash behind those ears.
Evan's little sister Thimble is competing in the Sitting Pretty event of the Pawlympics today, so be sure to visit Dory's Backyard to see her and all of the pretty competitors! And don't forget to also visit Emma and Bailie for the Wabbit Tracking event!
***Our Tip of the Day:
Cats are fastidious groomers, as I'm sure you all know. Keep in mind, though, that some kitties have conditions or other circumstances that make grooming difficult. Overweight or obese kitties, for example, often cannot reach to groom their hindquarters. This can lead to matting in that area, as well as an overall dirty condition of the bum. Another example is older and arthritic kitties, who also often have trouble reaching such areas due to pain or discomfort. If your kitty cannot reach to groom certain areas of their body for any reason, they may require some assistance from their humans. For such kitties, you may need to comb them more frequently, or use fragrance-free pet or baby wipes, or even shampoo. There are dry shampoos on the market, as well as sanitizing and deodorizing shampoo sprays. Although dogs are not fastidious at grooming as their feline counterparts, it is still important to keep in mind that, if your pup can't reach their hindquarters or other regions of their body due to obesity, old age, arthritis, or another reason, they also may require your cleaning assistance.
