There’s nothing more embarrassing than when you are in line at the grocery store, and your mom starts licking behind your ears.

This kitten understands. She is striking out to achieve grooming independence at an early age, but she needs a little help first.

Chilling, human-style, beside her mom, this baby cat is watching her parent’s beauty routine very closely. The copy cat has the basics down – paws up, tongue out – but can’t seem to make all the moving parts connect.

Instead of carefully cleaning her face like mother, the kitten does more of a clumsy Macarena, dotted with bouts of chest biting. It’s precious.

I don’t know how long it will take before this kitten can fully clean her own fur, but I certainly don’t mind waiting.
