Believe it or not, cats can spend up to 50% of their entire day just grooming. The other 50% being taken up by playing, sleeping and relieving themselves. I mean, if you think about it cats don’t need to be bathed as often as dogs because they spend all of that time detailing and cleaning themselves! So let’s suppose it’s a good thing that they are so obsessive about it, as we all know how tough it can be to bathe a cat. Kittens start grooming themselves in their fourth week and in their fifth week, they learn how to groom their mother and other litter mates. As they grow and become adults living among other kitty family members, they continuously groom each other to strengthen bonds.

Sometimes it can be tricky for little kittens groom themselves in tougher, more distant spots. It takes some trial and error, and some twisting and turning to groom the right spots thoroughly. This little girl figured out the best way to groom her tail! Take a look at this adorable video below.
