Urban Dictionary defines hair of the cat as : drinking non-alcoholic beverages to relieve a hangover, especially when others in the area are engaged in consuming alcohol to feel better.
At our house it happens almost every morning – but not in the Urban Dictionary kind of way.
It happens more in the getting-out-of-the-shower-to-reach-the-towel-only-to-be- greeted-by-a-cat-who-happens-to-enjoy-rubbing-around-your-legs-to-get-herself-wet-and-in-the-process-transfers-her-long-cat-hair-onto-your-wet-legs-leaving-you-with-hairy-cat-hair-legs kind of way.
Chloe, our cat, apparently only does this to me based upon the blank stare I got when complaining to Husband about it.
Once she has transferred enough of her fur onto my wet legs so that I could pass as a satyr (minus the hooves), she then enjoys a brisk towel drying. This final step in the process ensures my towel will be sufficiently furry enough for the following morning.
I am not sure whether I should feel honored that she has chosen me for this daily routine or more like a well trained monkey. Either way, I will continue doing it because she is so darn cute.
And I am a sucker.
