Fang Shui Friday

Good grooming makes for good feng shui. Clean often, paying special attention to the delicate areas of the hindquarters.

This must be done in the northeast corner of the room in full view of everyone, especially guests.

When the wise cat is satisfied with the cleanliness of its hindquarters, it should present them for inspection.

Get as closed as possible to the selected guest, and then swing around so that he can admire your clean hind parts.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

I can do that! Me showing off how well I can reach around to keep myself nice and clean. Plus it is soooo much fun to do this in front of people who don't have kitties.
Plus mum was especially please with my digestive output the past two days. She says things are getting back to normal. That pleases her very much. Me too, that means I won't get taken back to the vet.

I think it's a fine thing to remember--to be sure that guests have a good view. So often we forget how interested humans can be in the minutiate of what we do.

I'm so glad you are feeling better!

Your demonstration photos are just perfect. This is a great fang shui tip. My brother's cat, Dodger, likes to present me with his hindquarters, so I will scritch the base of his tail. I am glad that your digestive output is nearly back to normal.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, Derby. No cat wants to make any more visits to the V.E.T. than we have to!

Hi Derby, I survived!

And I am glad to hear that you are getting better. I think you are a little bendier than me, I can't twist round that far because of my floofy stomach...

First, I'm very glad you're feeling better and things are "moving along" as they should.
Second, that is a great feng shui tip. Guests get such joy from watching me groom my hindquarters...luckily mommy and daddy don't try to interupt...

Eric and Flynn said...

Furry good tips Derby. I am furry good at cleaning my hindquaeters, but unforchinittly Eric isn't as flexybull as me, and me and mum call him "Bogey Butt"

I'm so happy that you're feeling better!

You should write for a magazine because you were very thorough in your explanation and visual tutorial that any cat could follow your instructions!

Happy Easter!
