Cat

Cats are not afraid of water.  They can even swim when they must.  But most cats do not like baths, or being chilled with water.

A cat spends much time grooming itself, using its rough tongue as a washcloth to “bathe” its body.

The tongue can reach almost everywhere except the head and neck.

The cat licks a paw and washes its face and head with a wet pay.  It is soiled with something that only a bath will clean off.

The cat’s all-purpose tongue also serves as a spoon when drinking milk.  It take four or five laps before swallowing.  Its rough surface helps file bits of meat from bones.  All cats are hunters.

Their sharp claws help them catch rats, mice, gophers and other animals.  A hunter that must get close enough to its prey to pounce on it must be spotlessly clean and have no odor to warm its victim. – Dick Rogers
