Hair of the Cat?

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.

  1. Love that Hair of the Cat means more than just the left behind fur! We had a dog who would leave behind enough hair to make a small puppy whenever he shook – I miss him but not the hair I often found on the dishes.
