Dragonheart: Yes, I let the little guy clean my ears. He did an okay job, for a kitten. Unfortunately, he didn't clean them well enough to keep our humans from cleaning them yesterday, when we had our weekly baths. I have to confess, I wasn't very good when I had my bath yesterday. Normally, I sit fairly quietly, and let my humans bath me. Merlin is the squirmy one. Well, yesterday, about half way through my bath, I tried to climb out of the tub by climbing onto my mom's back. That wasn't a very good idea, since my dad wasn't very happy with me after that. Our humans are wondering if Merlin's being a bad influence on me, since normally I'm such a good boy at bath time.
