But the perversion isn't even half of it. When cats lick their paws, they do it after touching all sorts of disgusting things, and they don't use antibacterial soap beforehand. They don't even use probacterial soap. That's just downright gross. If I touched a toilet and then licked my hand, most people would vomit a little in their mouth, but cats can do it all day long and no one thinks twice.
