On Sunday, I decided to give Angel a bath.
The second I shut the bathroom door with her inside, she knew something was up.
She hasn’t had a bath in a very long time…at least two years (and probably more like four or five). Her fur was starting to look and feel a little greasy in a way that Jacoby’s fur never does.
Angel’s spa day started off with a mani-pedi, and then a good Furmination. I actually got this Furminator with an “eject button” as a free gift from Blog Paws, and I have to say, it’s much better than the non-ejecting model.
Don’t worry, Angel. Your hair won’t go to waste. I have plans to make Jake a Trump wig out of it. It’s just the right colour!
Then, I put her into the tub…she wasn’t thrilled with that. I have to say, though, having sliding glass doors on the bathtub really makes bathing cats a lot easier!
See? She can’t escape!
No matter how hard she tries…
…she can’t get the doors open.
It really makes a difference. I can bathe a cat without any help. It’s nice. When we move, we’ll be back to shower curtains…but we’ll also have a hand-held shower head, so rinsing will be easier. It’s a trade-off I can accept.
Finally it was time to dry off.
I usually blow-dry Jake, but if I tried that with Angel she would freak out.
So with her, it’s towel dry, lick, and shake.
Angel, doesn’t it feel good to be all clean and sparkly?
Er…I’ll ask you again once you’re all dry.
