I get clean. I scrub. I shower. I shampoo. The cat cleans me too. He uses his paws to bring my hand close. He licks. His tongue is rough. He's going to get me clean. He's going to show me affection. May I have my hand back? Not yet. He's going to lick some more. And more. I'm clean, little cat, I swear I'm clean. Thank you for taking care of me, little cat. Thanks, little buddy. I'm ready to go into the world now.
