I like to do a lot of my personal grooming on my Mom's
bed since it provides a lot of space to get the uncooperative
parts like my tail that has a mind of it's own when grooming. The
bed provides room to wrestle the tail into submission. First
my paws move slowly so as not to scare the tail away.
Once I capture my tail I pin it to the bed with my two
front paws and begin grooming it with my tongue before
it gets a chance to go away. This time I managed to give my
tail a good grooming before it got the chance to leave, which
led me to Purr, Purr, Purr while grooming. I was very happy
with my tails behavior and resulting spiffiness.
