I don’t really care how it looks but it feels a little funky. Staff says I’m handsome no matter what but I prefer to have clean eyes.
Staff uses Q-tips® to clean all sorts of places on Pugsley and me. For the following uses, she likes the original Q-tips® because the tips are rounder and a little softer than the Precision Tips.
Here are instructions from the staff for cleaning our eyes with a Q-tip:
1. Hold the cat’s head very still (right, easier said than done, I know)
2. If the eye goop is dried, it helps to moisten it with a little water and let it sit a little bit to break up the pieces
3. If the goop is wet, continue to step 4.
4. Gently wipe away the pieces and/or goop with a Q-tip
5. Voila! Clean eyes!
On the flip side (literally) my staff sometimes uses Q-tips to remove “goop” from the other end of us, i.e., our little sensitive tushies.
She says the technique is the same. If the “stuff” is dried on there, use a little water to moisten the it and wait a few minutes and then wipe away with a Q-tip.
And, whooweee….as with around the eyes, be gentle back there!
And there you have it. I would love to know how you use Q-tips®. Leave a comment below telling me how YOU use Q-tips® and you could win a $50 Petco gift card, courtesy of Q-tips®!
If you tell me how you use Q-tips® for your pets, you’ll get TWO entries!

And, by the way, friends: This is a sponsored post. We received Q-tips® product from Unilever, the makers of Q-tips® but my tips and suggestions are my own- with some help from Pugsley and the staff.
