I woke up at about midnight last night to the sound of loud, rushing water from the bathroom.
My housemate is vigorously washing his hands in the sink. A rare sight.
I never, ever see or hear him washing his hands. Now, that’s not to say he’s a filthy guy. In fact, he is probably the most hygenic person I know – he showers twice a day, washes his clothes religiously and insists upon non-empty bottles of shampoo for our shower.
But, he never washes his hands!
I’m worried that something’s wrong – that he’s become all OCD like one of my ex boyfriends (all of whom are very OCD).
“I was just holding Khan,” he tells me, clearly caught off guard by my sudden presence. “I have a cold and I don’t want to pass it on to him and vice versa.”
My cat Khan is a cuddle monster, a purring teddy bear – not a carrier of disease! He’s always cleaning himself. Cats have natural detergent in their saliva that keeps them super clean. When Khan cleans himself he smells like clean laundry – not catfood, fish or anything else.
He’s a laundromat on legs!
