Luckily, Jake isn’t very hard to bathe at all. Good thing, too, since he’s so big and strong, with weight to throw behind his strength. And he’s slippery when he’s wet!

He’s been getting baths since he was a kitten, and he doesn’t mind getting wet, so he just puts up with baths with an air of dignified resignation.
