Monday Bath Day

That's it. I'm calling the CPS (Cat Protective Services)!
I walked into the living room tonight to find the cat lying on one of the tv trays, a tray on which I had planned on setting my plate to eat dinner in the living room with Mr. Studley. He sat across the room as if oblivious to the fact that anything was out of order. It's not that he's a slob, far from it, but he has this major soft spot when it concerns Putty Tat. My reaction was less than pleasant, so he quickly piped up that he'd bathe her after dinner. Yeah, that's going to help me. The tv tray needs bathing!
True to his word, Mr.S. did give her a bath. The pitiful moans coming from the bathroom were a surefire indication that someone wasn't enjoying the process. Putty Tat wasn't any too happy, either. I wanted to get a better picture than the one above, one of her dripping and showing her displeasure. Unfortuantely, with her claws sunk into his arm, Mr.S. wouldn't accommodate a pose for me. Harumph!

I'm not sure there is a meaner look than a wet cat! Poor baby.

I bet Putty Tat wasn't the only enjoying the process. :)

That is one unhappy kitty! I hope she is happier now!

Adorable! And a good reminder that I need to suck it up and bathe the cat already. I swear it's been a couple of years, at least. I obviously take too much to heart that the cat is self-cleaning.

Oh boy! She looks like she is plotting some way to get you all back :-). I'm sure she is happy now that she is clean and sweet smelling!!

If I were you I'd sleep with one eye open tonight! Also make sure you put slippers on before you get out of bed. Nothing ruins a morning like stepping in cat hairball puke! LOL!!!!!

I gave my persian cat a bath last week, too. Oh, how she hates ME! She really does. I am the big meanie who give her a bath and cuts all her hair off. She mats very, very badly and since she hates being combed, too, I just whack her fur off every 4 months or so. She gives me such glares, hisses and tried to claw at me with her non-existent claws. Her name??? Gracie! She has not one ounce of grace in her. Trust me!! :-D
