    Wow, that cat had a good reaction to the water. Maybe since it was so close to another pussy it had no problem being wet! lol




    I'de be nice and calm also, if she was holding me in the shower....
    You'd be speechless from coughing up hairballs. LOL
    Hopefully, she'd turn out to be one of them rare bald pussy cats......No fur balls for me thanks....LOL


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Kitty power wash

    Thoroughly clean the toilet.
    Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water and have both lids lifted.
    Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
    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: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for 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.
    Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power wash and rinse" which I found to be quite effective.
    Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
    Stand behind the toilet as far as you can and quickly lift both lids.
    The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet and run outside where he will dry himself.


    My prefered method.

    Cat Bathing As A Martial Art
    Know that although the kitty cat has the advantage of quickness and lack of concern for human life, you have the advantage of strength. Capitalize on that advantage by selecting the battlefield. Don't try to bathe him in an open area where he can force you to chase him. Pick a very small bathroom. If your bathroom is more than four feet square, we recommend that you get in the tub with the cat and close the sliding-glass doors as if you were about to take a shower. (A simple shower curtain will not do. A berserk cat can shred a three-ply rubber shower curtain quicker than a politician can shift positions.)
    Know that a cat has claws and will not hesitate to remove all the skin from your body. Your advantage here is that you are smart and know how to dress to protect yourself. We recommend canvas overalls tucked into high-top construction boots, a pair of steel-mesh gloves, an army helmet, a hockey face-mask, and a long-sleeved flak jacket.
    Use the element of surprise. Pick up your cat nonchalantly, as if to simply carry him to his supper dish. (Cats will not usually notice your strange attire. They have little or no interest in fashion as a rule.)
    Once you are inside the bathroom, speed is essential to survival. In a single liquid motion, shut the bathroom door, step into the tub enclosure, slide the glass door shut, dip the cat in the water and squirt him with shampoo. You have now begun one of the wildest 45 seconds of your life.
    Cats have no handles. Add the fact that he now has soapy fur, and the problem is radically compounded. Do not expect to hold on to him for more than two or three seconds at a time. When you have him, however, you must remember to give him another squirt of shampoo and rub like crazy. He'll then spring free and fall back into the water, thereby rinsing himself off. (The national record for cats is three latherings, so don't expect too much.)
    Next, the cat must be dried. Novice cat bathers always assume this part will be the most difficult, for humans generally are worn out at this point and the cat is just getting really determined. In fact, the drying is simple compared with what you have just been through. That's because by now the cat is semi-permanently affixed to your right leg.
    You simply pop the drain plug with your foot, reach for your towel and wait. (Occasionally, however, the cat will end up clinging to the top of your army helmet. If this happens, the best thing you can do is to shake him loose and to encourage him toward your leg.) After all the water is drained from the tub, it is a simple matter to just reach down and dry the cat.
    In a few days the cat will relax enough to be removed from your leg. He will usually have nothing to say for about three weeks and will spend a lot of time sitting with his back to you. He might even become psychoceramic and develop the fixed stare of a plaster figurine.

    You will be tempted to assume he is angry. This isn't usually the case. As a rule he is simply plotting ways to get through your defenses and injure you for life the next time you decide to give him a bath. But at least now he smells a lot better.

    Weird.

    I have been a cat person my entire life.
    When I was young we always had cats.
    My mom was huge into them.
    She knows cats better than anyone nad her cats always had the neatest personailities.

    I have 3 now myself, all girls.
    Boys piss everywhere (not all, but chances are way better) and are lame.
    I know this because I have had only males for 30 years up until we got our first female 3 years ago and have got 2 more since.
    Females are 10x better.
    They talk more, they are cleaner, they do not have a tendancy to spray, they are more loyal, and they have better personalities.
    The cats we have are all very pretty and we did not settle for a plain looking cat.
    All 3 are my buddies and they go where I go.
    Heck, I have to leave the door cracked when I am in the bathroom because for some reason that is their favorite room.

    As far as baths, I do not think cats need it.
    Most clean themselves really good.
    The only place that I have ever seen get greasy is the part at the base of the tale.
    If I were to put one of mine on the tub, I know I would never be able to hold them without the back claws ripping my leg in half and they go supersonic!

    Here is Jersey and Phoenix now:

    When I die I want to come back as one of my cats.
    Animals never had it so good as living here.
    I have 6 cats and no mice or rats.
    ;D
    Two of my cats are 18 yrs old and still in good shape.
    I hear you about the bathroom Ultra.
    If I close the door they complain loudly and scratch at it till I open it.
    There is no way I would try to give any of them a bath unless they got into something that could make them sick or something.
    If you want to clean them for some reason just brush them with a pet brush.
    I have one with long hair that has to have mats cut off her sometimes in the summer to keep her from becoming a rasta cat with dreads.
    The only thing they need help with is removing stickers from their fur on the neck and back where its difficult for them to reach.
    However often they will groom each other.

    When I lived in Tonga my cats, which were great for keeping lizards and roaches out of our hurricane house , used to get jumped by ferile cats and come home with the most horrible smelling liquid on them and i'd have to bathe them every time which resulted in many scratches. I have a bengal cat here that is supposed to like water and wade in the tub, but it freaks out.
    On another note, if NordicNed is called "the first Vikings fan to live in the Philippines," I am most definitely the first Vikings fan to live in TONGA (a 49ers fan and a Cowboys fan there only). I have a purple jersey hanging proudly in the most popular bar in Vava'u!
