Wash, then rinse

Newer Older

"What do we do about the fleas, since, you know, she's so little?" I asked the guy at BARC.
"Wash her with a little Palmolive." he said.
"huh? As in , soap and water?" I was incredulous. I've seen the whole cat washing thing in the interweb, but really thought it was some sort of torture-for-humor kind of thing.
So, here she is: Mimi's first bath. I actually think she sort of likes it now. She always seems to be purring when she gets toweled off.

    I guess if they get started young they can learn to like a bath.

    I once gave a cat his first bath at twelve years old. That was pretty miserable.

    My cats like to play in the tub, but they have never had a bath.

    You know getting rid of those fleas must have made him feel so much better. He probably sensed that you were doing something good for him.

    Aww she looks terrified!! I had the same problem except I stupidly poured the dish soap directly on my kitty's fur and it took me like an hour to rinse it all out! But if you bathe them regularly they actually don't mind baths!
