“How Often Do You Wash Your Cat?”

Young is not a cat lover. She is allergic to the beasts, and has therefore decided they are unclean.

The fact that I have a cat may make me dirty, somehow, in her eyes. But I guess now I am beyond the pale.

I admitted that I didn’t wash my cat, ever. He is an indoor cat right now, and he washes himself. I demonstrated, miming licking paws and cleaning ears.

She was not convinced.

But now, neither am I. Baxter’s clean. For a cat, anyhow. He washes pretty much all the time.

But he does lick his own butt. That’s pretty gross.

On the other hand, I’m not going to wash it for him.

    Don’t wash your cat unless it has fleas. Or sometimes, when they get old, they have a hard time. Otherwise, your cat is quite clean.

    I know that, and you know that, but an animal-mistrusting danderphobe from another culture might not see it the same way.
