Mister's Guide to Thanksgiving (part 2)

Now that you've helped Mom get the house clean for Grandma, it's time for my next Thanksgiving Tip.
Mister's Thanksgiving Tip #2: Clean yourself.

I know, I know. This probably means a b-a-t-h for many of you. You feline friends are lucky. You clean yourselves! I do this some too, but lately my people have been sniffing me and saying, "Mister! You smell like DOG." To which I respond, "And you smell like Human. What's the problem?"

Your people (or person) will probably drag you to the groomer. Be super excited in the car. You never know. They could fake you out and take you to the bank! Or even better, Starbucks! When the car is parked and your human lets you out, keep being excited and explore everything. Go up to people and say hi. They love that.

When Mom opens the door, lock those legs! You get bonus points if you can do that AND back up. She'll say hi to the meanies and say good-bye, while the groomer does terrible things. Like get you wet. Blech. I hate water!

After fifty million thousand hours, the groomer will call your mom and say "Your baby is ready!" And then Mom comes to get you. Luckily, you've fooled the groomer with your charm and she tells your mom that you were so good and she just loves you. This will probably get you a treat when you come home. You will also smell funny. Don't worry. That goes away in a couple of days (about the time your people will start telling you you smell like dog again...huh. Weird).

On the plus side, you might get a spiffy bandana for your troubles.
