The real secret to my sleek, shiny, velvety fur is my daily dirt bath. I have a spot near the driveway that is an unpaved area, ostensibly for "visitor" parking (SNORT!). I've fashioned a little indentation there where I roll around and cover myself with dust. Now, this might seem counter-intuitive: rolling in dirt in order to have a lovely, clean coat. But, it helps absorb any excess oil, and I think it helps smother any little critter that may have decided to hitch a ride.
|Those white spots are where my nips are (I have six, I think). I'm not sure why I have nips.|
|Geez. No privacy whatsoever.|
