Mancat Monday

 Irene was only a tropical storm by the time she got to us, but she somehow managed to knock out the power for almost the whole day yesterday.  The power came on again at 11pm so I pushed Mommy to do my post.  We sure hope everyone fared okay!


I have been asked many times how I manage to keep my whites so white and my colours so vibrant.  It is not an easy task when you have as much fur as I do.  Of course the most important thing is to clean yourself as much as you can, but I do have other secrets to my well-groomed coat.


One advantage I have is a HUGE tongue.  I don't know why it's so big but I assume it's just proportionate to my large, manly shape.


It's a lot easier to stay clean with a big tongue but I've also learned a good trick to really get all the dirt off.

I'm thinking of patenting this move.  It cleans both sides of the fur at once!


Now I'm the cleanest Mancat around.  Go ahead, just try to find a speck of dirt on me!



Maybe if Bella and Sweet Pea had let me help with their cleaning they wouldn`t have had to be shaved.

Wow, Samson! My human just said, "Gene Simmons has nothing on that kitty!" I am not sure what she meant by that - I don't get her dumb rock 'n' roll references.

You certainly do the best job ever of staying so nice and clean Samson. That is a big job keeping all those furs clean. You are just so handsome Samson. Take care. Glad you got through the hurricane all right without too much damage.

Cory said...

Samson, could you come on over and give Figaro some private lessons? His whites are typically less than white...he gets into all sorts of dirt and sap out in the garden.

Mom wants to kiss the spot on your nose!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Samson - that is a great cleaning machine you have there - no wonder you always look so handsome.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Samson, that IS an impressive tongue! We can see how it helps to keep your whites white. :-)

We're glad you all weathered the storm just fine and have your power back!

Random Felines said...

Wow - you are a very handsome and sparkly clean mancat!!!

Hey Samson, you look like a really cool cat. I only know a mean one. We call it The Devil but his name is Allred.

Just wanted to tell you How clean you look and that I am going to show Allred (Devil Cat) the picture of your soon to be pattented tongue move.

Pretty cool

Brian said...

Angel and Kirby said...

You are very shiny and bright! Great bathing style

BeadedTail said...

You are very impressive Samson! Our mommy was saying something similar to what Sparkle's human said but we just think you are one incredible Mancat! We're very glad you haven't been turned into a lion like Bella and Sweet Pea because we love your super clean, floofy tuxie furs!

The Cat From Hell said...

Wow! Sampson you do such an excellent job! And the tongue!@ Wow! Do you special exercises to get it to do that?

You do have a very big, pink tongue ... and you look very clean to us!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, that's some cool tongue action you got there, especially in that one pic with the corkscrew tongue! We're in awe over here!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

so glad that you are all ok! It was God's way of giving you a break from the computer!

Willow said...

Samson you have a great way to keep the whites bright in the tummy and black so shiny.

CCL Wendy said...

You certainly do have your technique down pat, Samson! And yes, your tongue does seem to be extraordinarily long and wide. I don't think Dante's tongue is a wide as that -- his is more pointed.

Kudos on a job well done!
