I washed and polished my car the other day.
At first both cats kept their distance. Scoop sat on the wall and watched with pleasure. He always likes to see people working hard. Au on the other hand refuses to be anywhere near soapy water. He watched from behind the living room window.
But the second the car was clean and dry, they bounced up and inspected it, putting dusty paw prints all over it. Here they are, looking smug and not the least bit guilty as always!
