Tuna is 1% body and 99% fur. So when he gets a bath and that fur gets matted down, he can look pretty hysterical. & I know I've talked about how he's not the smartest cat in the whole world, but I'm thinking now that it has to do with his head size. I mean, his head is so tiny there must not be much space for too much brainage. Poor thing. At least he's cute!
So it all begins with a little rinse. John installed this sprayer thing in the spare bathroom (that has never been used except for the cats) so that it would be easier to bathe the felines. I think it's great, but Tuna disagrees.
|Close your eyes, little buddy!|
Next comes the shampoo.
& a little scrub a dub dub, starting with his head.
|It's not that bad!|
Then as John gets more shampoo, Tuna starts looking for an escape route.
But before he's able to escape, the rinsing starts again.
& he HATES it! And I hate that the sprayer got in the way of this picture, because from what I can tell, that is one fierce face for a 5 pound animal.
I'm thinking it looked like this face, only meaner.
See what I mean about his head size? I also think I should adjust my formula to: 1% body, 1% ears, and 98% fur.
Before long the bath part is over and its time to dry off in the towel.
The fun isn't over yet though. & Tuna looks thrilled about the next step: the hairdryer.
& finally, we get out his comb and he starts looking more like himself again.
But at least he's clean, and we can all get a good laugh about it.
The small print: No animals were harmed in the making of this blog post. Egos, maybe, but physically he's fine.
