    1. Oh the claw marks we're left with with the cat we have now...we need long sleeves and gloves for this one! Luckily he's keeps himself quite clean!

  2. Ugh I'm so glad I don't have to wash my cat, he does a good enough job all on his own, loved your story, very funny, I could picture the whole scene!

    1. Thank you! Our last cat was quite smelly and we had to wash him often- he was quite good once we got him in!

  5. Wet cats are not usually happy cats, Erik. ;) Loved your word sounds...they made the story come alive. Glad you hopped on board the challenge.

  7. When ours were kittens we could wash them. NOW - you would need a leather shirt & steel gloves. Great images of this poor cat.

    1. We haven't been able to give our latest cat a bath...he's a tough, hefty 14 pounder with an attitude.

  8. I imagine this is what it would be like if my son tried to give our cat a bath. =) Good luck!
