Everyone knows that humans are stinky creatures.
That’s probably because they have so much naked skin and also because they wash with soap and water. It’s clearly inferior to a spit bath.
Although it’s a thankless job, Fireball long ago took on the task of rewashing the human’s fingers and hands. In fact, he used to scoop up a finger in one of his soft little orange paws, clamp down with his claws, and scrub for all he was worth while the human howled in fits of laughter, since it tickled so much.
Fortunately, the human always tries to express appreciation after her bath.
Fireball feels satisfied about having contributed to the greater good of the human and household.
