Pussy Gets Wet

Our cat, Pickles, had her first bath today and was NOT impressed. 

Here's how to bath a cat:

1. Open the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water, and have both lids lifted.
3. Obtain the cat from his hiding place and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids
(you may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape).
CAUTION: Don't get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws and claws will be reaching out to grab anything they can find. The cat will self-agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from your toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
5. Flush the toilet 3 or 4 times. This provides a "powerwash and rinse" which I have found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet and run outside where he will dry himself.


Okay, so here how to really bath a cat:

Before her bath, calm and relaxed

The title alone got me. When I was a kid, we only had one indoor cat, I grew up on a farm. The barn cats would have killed us if we tried giving them one, but the indoor cat actually liked getting a bath. Very weird I know.

The title drove somewhere else as well... only for a second LOL

Hey- you don't really get him into the toilet I hope!
What I see is cats hate water more than any other animals! He does not look happy at all. But so fluffly and beautiful in the end.
I love cats and yours is
gorgeuous!!!

Not all cats hate being washed or bathed. We used to put ours in the bath, and use the shampoo spray.

Cats look so sad when they're wet. I had to help a friend bathe her cat after it got sprayed by a skunk. Good Lord, I think we were more soaked than the cat.

The title of your post was enough for my anti-virus system to warn me this site may be rather dodgy...
