The technique that seems to be innate is.......firstly....stare with major intent!
2nd...fake a good yawn....!!
3rd.....move in with swift abandon and use your paw always!
4th...continue slurping, and since Jim's Dad has dubbed me "The Licker"....never stop unless the human's face is completely cleaned!
Then, lastly, curl up in a ball and fall fast asleep to be awaken refreshed and ready to start all over again!
