Don't you just love (or hate) to watch...

...when your furkids are cleaning themselves?

My MOST favorite to watch is when they are cleaning off their front paws, with the paw curled inward toward their faces. I just love the look of concentration as they go between their toes, and the way their paws look curled up like that!

OK, I'm weird, I admit it.

My LEAST favorite to watch is when they've messed themselves and are cleaning THAT area.

Yeah, thats cute! Also when they sit in a chair like a person and try to clean their tummys with their back legs sticking out each side.

Yep, it is enough to tear me away from the TV for a while. Persi has now started cleaning Alley but Alley has not as yet ever returned the favor.

I like to watch them clean between their toes. I like kitty toes.

Ever watch a young kitten try to wash its behind? I love it when they roll over backwards!

I like to watch them cleaning their face and ears. They lick their paws and then wipe their paws across their ears and face.

I am with you on this one! I love watching them cleaning themselves.

I think its really cute when they are all twisted up cleaning their bellys.

Oh, yes that's wonderful! And a sweet baby cleaning itself and rolling over!!! I love it!

When they're cleaning their hind legs, and the one leg shoots straight up into the air...reminds me of a dancer's long, lean leg...beautiful!

Awwww...

Cosette does this STRICTLY because she knows we think it is cute and it will lead to her getting attention! It's such a good ploy because it works every time and we get a clean kitty out of the deal! We call it her otter pose because she's laying on her back, kind of curled upwards like an otter when it eats! Yes, kitties cleaning themselves are VERY cute, but when they clean each other- that is priceless!

Forest still does that. His CH makes him really uncoordinated, so he just gets it all into position and ready to go and he'll topple right over.

Betsy I totally agree with you...that paw curled in thing is cuter than anything

I don't mind them when their cleaning themselves. Especially when Luna is cleaning her nails; she almost looks like she's biting them.

The worst for me to watch is when they clean each others butts...their own I can understand, but I am so glad that humans don't do that to each other

I hate watching Reeses clean her back feet because she bites them and tugs at her toes and it's just gross looking

I love watching the girls clean their little ears and faces too. As far as "backside" cleanings are concerned, Annabelle has no shame. She'll flop down anywhere. Sometimes I worry her nose is gonna get stuck

It's so funny to see then clean THAT area. Whenever they hear any sound at all they always just stop right where they are and look around with one leg way up in the air.

i like watching nabu do "cat yoga". when he cleans his "area" he will sit down, then put both of his back legs straight in the air. he looks like he's doing yoga. it is the funniest thing to watch.

I always consider that "Washing their feet and drying them on their face" LOL

I love when they get really involved in cleaning their tummies and let out a little snort, like they've gotten too far into the belly fat or something. I also can't get enough of them cleaning their front paws with such determination. My favourite is watching my kitties groom each other but it freaks me out when all of a sudden they start licking each other's tongues. I suppose it's like kitty-kisses to each other, but it's a bit nasty to me.

My fave to watch is when they are cleaning their faces, it's so cute!! Stanley will lay on my belly and do it. It's kind of gross though when he gets some eye goobies on his paw and licks it up... grosses me out.
