"Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well." (Missy Dizik)
From a cat's eye view, the ten steps to good grooming are (and note it is important to follow these exactly):
1. Lick lips.
2. Lick paws.
3. Rub wet paw all over head.
4. Lick other paw.
5. Rub wet paw over other side of head.
6. Lick front legs and shoulder.
7. Lick flanks.
8. Lick private parts.
9. Lick hind legs.
10. Lick tail.
11. Lick humans.
