Fresh

Earlier today I decided I needed a little lap time with Mom. I started my usual survey of the territory, trying to tamp down the offending lumps. I was just beginning to settle on a spot when Mom said

"You smell..."

I never expected the sentence to end with

"like a waterfall in a meadow! Did you sleep on a fabric softening sheet?"

I shall never tell. I normally smell like sunshine and rainbows.

  4. You had me for a moment! I remember those times that something was stuck to Sweet Praline's floofy pantaloons and it didn't smell too good.

  6. HA! My cat sitter claims to smell like sunshine & rainbows. Frankly, she's full of it. And by It, I mean something that rhymes with It. I'm just relieved to know that this exchange did not end in a B-A-T-H for you Fin. ; )

  9. Oh Finny...now my mom wants to smell you. I know, she's odd.

    Mom never says stuff like that to me, but mom and dad fuss over Jonesie because her fur smells wonderful...like flowers, herbs...you know. Whatever she's been sleeping on.

    Purrs,

  15. Fin, your mom just wants an excuse to stick her nose in your furry bod! xx

  16. LOL! That's much better than a lot of things to smell like, Fin. Though the mom never has found any of us stinky, actually. When she could still smell, she thought we just smelled faintly of the outdoors or of the scented litter we formerly used. :-)

    We thinks you smell divine Fin. ~Socks & Fenris

    Fin, will you tell me your secret? I would like to smell "like a waterfall in a meadow!" As long as a human type bath isn't involved. ~Artemisia

  30. Fin can you let a girl in on your secret most of the time I smell great through every once in a while she says I smell stale. When I am stale I have to take a bath to smell almonly fresh.
