You're Gonna Give Me a WHAT???

Aw, come on, let me stay dirty!!!

Every now and then, the cats get baths.  Oliver acts like he doesn't like it, but I think that, secretly, he really does.  He kind of settles down and enjoys his little shower.


Oh the indignity of it all.



I may as well accept that I'm wet all over. Looking pretty shabby.

Thank goodness THAT's over!  Now I can dry myself the cat way instead of that human towel thing.

Sam is a different cat entirely. Loud meows the whole time. "Oh puh-leeeees let me out of this sink!"

How long is this bath gonna last? I'm giving you the eeeevil eye until you let me out of here....

Resignation.


I'm gonna put on my porcupine act -- maybe it'll scare them off when they see my spikey quills.  They'll remember when bath time comes again....

But afterward, oh so nice and clean and sweet-smelling and soft, soft fur.  They love the feeling!


Ah, beautiful again. I guess it was worth it.....

I haven't had to bathe my cats yet (not counting the time one of them fell into the toilet), but your photos give me hope that it can be done with minimal blood loss, and maximum hilarity. Unless you just didn't show the blood loss part.

Hahaha this is so cute!! I don't think I could even attempt bathing my cats - they're pretty feral as it is without adding water to the mixture haha

Thanks for ya'lls comments! Wet cats are hysterical and fortunately don't smell like wet dogs!

Sarah - blood loss is at a minimum - I don't like to show it on the blog!! ha!

Just have lots of towels waiting and wear an apron!

We've never tried to give our cats baths before (we're too scared!!)

I give my cats baths, too, although it's been a while. Oliver meows a few times, but I think, in the end, he really feels better. Earnest howls like he's being tortured. But everyone does survive!
