Raven loves to wake me up in the middle of the night. He decides I need a bath and cleans up my face before chewing on my head and messing in my hair.
I love his sandpaper kisses but it’s startling in the middle of the night. I never realized a cat’s tongue was that rough, but maybe it seems that way when he’s bathing my face and neck. It’s a wonder I have any skin left. This is the coarse sandpaper treatment, not the fine stuff at all.
Once I’m awake then he’s ready to settle down again for another catnap on my pillow. Come morning, I have to wash the cat slobber out of my hair so I can go to work.
Raven’s taken up a real fetish for hair arranging lately. He tries to play hairdresser to everyone that comes into the house to visit. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe he likes the smell of hair products.
But I’ll never chase him off the bed. Time goes by too quickly and I know one day he’ll be too old and will retire from his grooming duties. Then all this stuff will only be humorous memories.
Does anyone else have a pet like this?
