Cats

When cats bathe themselves, how do they know where to lick?

I was watching Gypsy. Well, actually she was watching me. She was perched on the back of the chair snoozing, and then suddenly sat up awake, and stared at me while purring loudly. After a minute or two she stood up and stared off into nowhere as if going through a list of things she had to do.

"Hmmm, let's see, sleep some more? Nah... I know! I haven't bathed in a while!"

So she twists around and licks one spot for a bit, twists back and licks another spot, etc... I was wondering how she decides on where to lick? Is it purely random, or does she have some sort of plan of attack? Does cat fur act as dirt sensors or something?
