Cat's groom their own young to keep their coats clean, much like mothers like to apply the licked thumb to a dirty toddler face. So, does this mean that Opie thinks Michael is part of his litter? Though my little kitten didn't seem to care either way about his cat bath, I thought it was hilarious.
What Michael does find quite funny, is a good diaper change! He get's really giggly when we set him up on the changing table. I'm sure he likes the direct attention, but me tickling him probably helps too.
