Ear Cleaning

TIPPER

(sigh) How come no one cleans my ears for me? I ALWAYS clean George's ears for him, and have for years. Sometimes I clean Misty's too, if she'll hold still long enough. Max takes care of his own I guess, but NO ONE cleans mine except ME!

It's only fair, I think, that if I take the time to help someone with their daily bath, there should be some payback!

Dad calls me a "mother hen" 'cause I'm the one who takes care of everyone...cleaning ears, licking head tops & faces...that sort of thing. If someone cries out, I always run to see what the problem is. OK fine, I guess I AM a mother hen, but maybe that's 'cause I never had kittens of my very own.

And listen Mom, just because I was talking about ear cleanings doesn't mean I want you coming near me with those cotton stick things!

I clean my woofie's ears all the time. He never returns the favor either. What's up with that?

It does seem unfair. I am not much of an ear cleaner and neither is Gemini so we suit each other.

Ahh..Tipper, you are such a nice cat to help everyone with their baths. Maybe you could push your ears in their mouths until they get the hint that you would like to have some help bathing too! Just a thought.

Ohh Tipper, you are just like our Bubbles, he always cleans everyone else from top to bottom too. Only he is a mancat, so mother hen is not a right name for him. :)

If I want someone to wash my ears, I just put them, my ears I mean, into their nose. And that works. Maybe you can try that too.

Tipper, you are a very sweet little mother hen. I would much rather have my ears washed by you than with those cotton sticks. I hate those!

I understand your frustration. I clean everyone else's ears. I even clean Buddy's and Samaritan's while they're playing tug. But does anyone clean my ears? No! Or I wouldn't be writing this.

So all of you other cats, pitch in and do your share.

Merci,

I know how that goes!!! Cobalt licks my ears all the time, but I never lick back. He does all that work for nothing. Well, it benefits me but thats about it.

Oh my sweet Tipper. I'm so sorry you aren't feeling appreciated. Harlie and I take turns cleaning ears. As you know, you are welcome here any time, and I would be very happy to clean your ears. So would Harlie even! And Mom nearly spit out her water when she saw that you were called Mother Hen. For different, very strange reasons that we won't go into, Mom and Dad call Harlie and I "hens" all the time! Anyway, I hope you'll come over soon for a massage and an ear cleaning!

Purrs,
Mattingly
