Keeping Clean with Kleenex

Sometimes my nostrils or eyes get a little bit dirty, but I do not like when my Mommie cleans my face. So, I been learning how to clean up my own face. First, I must make sure nobody is watching me. Because I am Not Allowed to use Kleenex by myself. Next, I casually place my paw on the stack of Kleenex...
Then I grab a big pawful!
Finally, I rub my face all over on the tissues. All clean!
If you want to try this at home, you must get this special ring for your Kleenex so they do not have to live inside a box. You can get one at the MoMA store. I think those tissue rings were designed with cats in mind.

70 Notes for Daisy:

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Daisy, we are very impressed that you can clean your own face with Kleenex!

topcatrules said...

Oh my goodness! That is so good.

Hey Daisy, I just sneezed all over all of my mom's legs. She was so glad I didn't do it on the laptop screen for once, that she didn't say anything.

But she did say it was like someone sprayed her with a hose.

Rocky, Angie & S'more said...

Boy, Daisy, this is great that you can clean your face! :) Being a Himalayan, Rocky's eyes get dirty alot - he could really benefit from using this technique! Thank you very much!

Purrs,
Rocky, Angie, & S'more xo

Parker said...

Wow, that's a great idea. But I can see why Mommy says that you should not try that by yourself. Too many surprises for the next user!

The Lazy Iguana said...

One (or more) of the cats here like to attack the toilet paper roll. Either the entire roll gets unrolled and partially shredded, or the roll gets deep fang marks on it.

Once I had a 24 roll pack that was not put away. That night all 24 rolls got savagely attacked and there was paper fluff EVERYWHERE.

With multiple cats, it is hard to tell who is guilty. Maybe only one cat - maybe all the cats. There is no way to tell.

Eric and Flynn said...

Daisy you are very clever to clean your face like that, and you never even shredded the tissues. Weren't you tempted too?

Poppy Q said...

Daisy you are full of surprises.
I always knew you was a clean girl.

Andrée said...

I really need to live with a kitty like you, Daisy. This is ridiculous how much I am learning about how nice kitties can be; how clean and nice. The bad boys shred tissues and walk away: as if by doing so, they will prevent cleanliness.

Alasandra said...

I like to wipe my face off with paper towels when I finish eating just like Mommy, Daddy & the boys wipe their faces when they are eating. But Mommy gets very mad at me when I jump up and snag the roll of paper towels.

You are very smart to wipe your face on the Kleenex.

Chexed said...

Daisy, I wonder if maybe you can teach my cat some things... For one and two, to stop urinating on people and their belongings too. He has been doing it ever since he's lived with me (and now us/wife/her kitty- who humps people), for a few years since I adopted him!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

another great lesson daisy. we all learn so much here. thanks honey pie! i will have to get sarge one of those so he can clean his own face!

smiles, auntie bee

Mickey said...

Good job cleaning your face by yourself! We cannot do that because Mom hides the Kleenex in a cupboard. I wonder why?
Purrs Mickey

Alexi said...

That's a grate idee! It could be a meezer rule. Why should beans clean our faces when we can do it just as easily; or when possible free trapped facial tissues from thei prison!

Trixie said...

Daisy you are such a good helper to your mom by cleaning your own face. I like Kleenex too but I have to fish it out of the box.

Sarge Charlie said...

You are just sooooooo smart Daisy, thanks for showing me how to clean my face.......

Lux said...

Gosh, you are so smart, Daisy ... and cute, too!

Karen said...

Ah Kleenex, nature's answer to all things gobby or snotty. I use it on my guys too. Recently the vet recommended I go to small gauze pads, so I guess I will. They're no fun to play with though. Nope. No fun at all.

Chance said...

dats a pawsum twick! Yoo noes how ta do all da coool twicks. Iz gunna twy dat so Mommie stops cweening my eyezes.

-d said...

A cheap alternative to using Kleenex and buying that special ring is toilet paper. My boyz can show you a quick way to unravel an entire roll in minutes.

Lois Grebowski said...

kleenex tissues rock,....ummm. except when you're 'llergic to kitties like me. I think I'll use Puffs instead...

(tee hee!)

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

Ooooh! We want one of those rings for our kleenex too! Good job, Daisy!

Forty Paws said...

This is very interesting. We think we understand why your Mommie says you can't use the kleenexs by yourself.

Luf, Us

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Oh I'm SO coming to try that at your house. If your mom likes that sort of thing she's going to love having me around.

Kaze

Captain Jack and Dante said...

We do that but we the toilet paper. Jack shredded, we mean USED, three whole rolls just last night!

Vincent and Mike said...

That's very clever, Daisy. We like toilet paper, but we haven't tried Kleenex yet.

michico*Adan said...

Oah Daisy,

You are very very smart to find a great way to clean your face~!!!!
That is excellent~!!!!!!
Pamilla mommy won't let me do it, but I think I could beg michico~~

Hehehehe~!
Adan

Monty Q. Kat said...

Wow! Can you teach BabyBean how to do that?

Lorianna said...

Daisy, whenever I come towards Billie to wipe her eye gunk she becomes very irritated with me. I tried to show her how good you are about doing it yourself, but she's not buying it. You're so cute. You seem to have fun every day. :)
Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna

The Meezers said...

Daisy, you are too cute! if it was US doing that, she would haf yelled.

Queen Snickers or Empress said...

Me gots in troubles for playings wif tishuse last week, Mommy had dem all over cus she was sickies. Me want to com play wif tishuse at your house. ~Empress

Ramses said...

Oh dat's a good one Daisy, purrsonally I'z pick dem outta d'box and use dem to wipe up water like when I manage to knock over My Mummy's purrty flowers and spill all d'water! ;) Or d'time I clogged up d'cat fountain and flooded d'kitchen floor... I'z sure My Mummy didn't notice as I'd covered all the wet up with paper napkins that time! :)

Junior said...

You are so talented Daisy! I gotta try this one!!!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Another truly excellent "how to" Daisy!

Boy said...

Wow! You weawwy know how to cwean up nicewy Daisy! Sad to say, we don't have those wing type tissue holders here.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is a great inventor Daisy. I think I will honor him when I am president... after all who would have thought that cats needed tissues?

Irishcoda said...

Way to be independent and wipe your own face with your own paws, Daisy! :)

catsynth said...

Those are funny pics of you with the kleenex :)

miz allie cat said...

that kleenex and you look sooo cute... meow

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh, I like that Kleenex ring - it makes it much easier for us cats to access Kleenex.

My Mum has Cat Eye Wipes and Cat Ear Wipes and she knows how to use them! I would prefer if she would just let me do it, but she says she can't stand to see me with eye gook.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

Daisy - you are so clever! and clean too! Well you know what they say, cleanliness is next to dogliness. Wait, is that right? I can't remember xx

Tybalt said...

You are so clever, Daisy! I will have to try that.

JB's Big World said...

OUr kleenex is in boxes, and also in fancy bathroom covers too, so it is hard to get the kleenex out. Sometimes we like to unroll the toilet paper though...that is fun too!
--JB

Nermal, Nico, Virgil, and Maggie said...

Wow, Daisy, we're so impressed! Mom would love it if we learned out to do that. (^_^)

Sunny's Mommy said...

Does your mommy know you waste, I mean use all those Kleenex to wash your face?

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Hmm, our mom should get one of doze rings...oh, but den she couldn't carry all da tissues around da house wif her. She gets mad at us when we sneez in da box of tissues, if she would give us one we wouldn't hafta keep sneezing and blowing our nozes in da whole box.

Asta said...

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Frasier said...

The Devil Dog said...

Daisy, you are very smart. Nice job cleaning your face. I did that last night, with the clean laundry.
Please don't let the demented snowmen scare you, I would not let them hurt you. I would protect you. Lucky, too.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Daisy, you're awesome for many reasons, but today I think you're awesome for letting us know where to get such a cool toy, um, I mean handy tissue ring. Yeah, that is what I meant.

Mommy thinks that is so cool!!

Sassy Cat said...

How smart are ya. Cleanin your own face to keep the mom from doin it. I know ya are more gentle with yourself then she is, they sometimes just don't know how strong they are.

TT said...

Good Job Daisy!

Gretchen said...

Wow! So that's how that's done!

Thanks, Daisy, I learned a new trick.

Hugs...G

Karen Jo said...

You are just so smart, Daisy. I love the way you learned to clean your own face with the Kleenex.

turkey cats said...

Wow! Thanks for the tips Daisy. I love kleenex.

Chairman Mao said...

Wowie kazowie, that's awesome you're kleanin yur face with a Kleenex! I don't klean my face with 'em but I love shreddin 'em, and shreddin tiolet papur and papur towels when I can get the ooppurtunity. hehehehe

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

MoMo said...

You are just so smart, Daisy! We don't have those rings here. Even if we do, SS is not going to get it, after seeing your demonstration.

jenianddean said...

I think that show what a big girl you are...to clean your face all by yourself. And my mom loves the Kleenex ring, but she knows that would carry the tissues all over the house if we had one of those.

-Jasper McKitten-Cat

Pablo said...

It's so nice of your mum to get all the tissues out of the box for you. Great job, Daisy!

Tyler said...

Wow Daisy, that's nice of your mom to buy you that cool Kleenex dispenser.

PB & J said...

We're not allowed to have Kleenex either - but Pearl steals them anyway (she sneaks onto the table in the night).

The M's said...

Wow, that is a great way to keep your eyes clean. Ask my Mommie to tell you how I keep my ears clean, your gunna love it...Missy

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Daisy dear, I am impressed that you use Kleenex! You are obviously cognizant of the fine points of etiquette.

I must confess: I make use of paper towels, but since I sharpen my claws on them when Mom isn't looking, I doubt Miss Manners would approve *giggle*.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Ahead Directory said...
