Washing the toilet bowl ======================= 1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl. 2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom. 3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid. You may need to stand on the lid. 4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this. 5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a 'power-wash' and rinse'. 6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door. 7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift the lid. 8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off. 9. Both the toilet and the cat will be sparkling clean.

A simple explanation of Life.
On the first day God created the Dog and said “Sit all day at the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past, for this I will give you a life span of 20 years”. The dog said “that’s a long time to be barking, how about only ten and I will give you back ten”
So God Agreed.
On the second day God created the monkey and said “Entertain people, do tricks and make them laugh. For this I will give you a twenty year life span” The monkey said “ Monkey tricks for 20 years? That’s a pretty long time to perform, how about I give you back 10 years like the dog did”?
And God Agreed.
On the third day God created the cow and said “You must go into the field each day with the farmer and suffer all day long under the sun, you will have calves and give milk to support the farmer and his family. For this I will give you a life span of 60 years” The Cow replied “That’s kind of a tough life to live for 60 years how about 20 and I give you back the other 40”.
On the fourth day God created humans and said “ Eat, sleep, play and marry and enjoy life for this I will give you 20 years” But the human said “Only 20 years, could you possibly give me my 20 the 40 the cow gave back along with the 10 the dog and the monkey returned making 80 in all.
“OK” said God “You asked for it”
So this is why for our first 20 years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. The next 40 we slave in the sun to support our family. Then the next ten we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. For the last ten we just sit and bark at everyone.
