Guys! I don’t know if me or my Moms ever told you this but I love to be clean.
I mean I don’t like any bad odors around me.I think I told you all this in several of my posts including the one where Moms and me stay at a hotel during Hurricane Katrina and I put toilet paper in my litter box after I took a dump at our hotel.
Well… while my Moms was in Angola for 3 weeks my Auntie Rae Rae was lookin’ after me. But, my Auntie was trying to get her career grove on. She came to DC with this unpaid internship and she had to prove herself and network so she came home late at nights and didn’t always have time to clean out my litter box.
Other ladies came by to look after me like my Moms friend Ms Jacky and the charter school lady teachers who rent the downstairs unit in our DC town home.
But, my hygiene suffered. My litter box got all jammed up with poop and when I tried to clean up, some poop got stuck to my bottom. Then I wiped my booty in the litter box, and it got all clumped up on my behind.
Moms went crazy when she saw chunks of hard litter and poop on my booty.
“Alfred. What’s this?! What’s all this stuff on your behind?”
“Moms, its dried litter and feces. My litter box got dirty when you were away. I tried to clean up after myself but the clumping litter got hard,and I couldn’t get it off. I licked and licked. And it just stays there.”
Actually, guys that crusty mix of poop and litter really hurt me. It hurt me physically and then it hurt my pride. You know we cats have our pride. You know Giant supermarket even has a brand of cat products called “Cat’s Pride.” Staying clean is really important to us cats. It’s important to me.
Any way, guys, my Moms has been back for almost three weeks now and she kept picking and pulling at the matted fur on my bottom until it was all off.
But, just between you and me, guys, my Moms wasn’t very hygenic about it. She had that dirty matted fur thrown all over the place in the house.
