Cat Gives Dog Extensive Grooming Session

Rumble / Funny & Cute AnimalsCats seem to love two things the most in their lives - napping and spa treatments. They spend half their lives grooming and the other half napping. Feline experts estimate cats spend about 15 percent of their time grooming, but since they're asleep most of the day, it seems like a nonstop activity. Feline meticulosity in maintaining a shiny coat isn't just pride; it's a healthy habit with built-in benefits.

If you even saw two cats together, you might have noticed they will groom each other, which is a gesture of affection or protection. Some areas, such as their own faces, ears and the tops of their heads, are difficult for cats to clean, and they will rely on a buddy or sibling to lend a tongue.

If a cat doesn’t have a sibling from their own species, they will transfer their need for grooming to the closest animal they will find. If she’s alone, then it is her owner, i.e. YOU. If a dog is present in a cat’s life, then she will groom the dander off that dog’s fur into oblivion, given if they are as close as littermates.

It would seem that this kitty is very close with her Boxer brother. Watch Izzy the cat obsessively groom Samson the Boxer in this heartwarming clip. Don't forget to get behind those ears, Izzy!
