Bathing cats

  1. Why did I think of Heather when I saw this?

    A better cat bath:

    1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.

    2. Add an amount of shampoo to the water in the bowl, and have both lids
    lifted.

    3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him toward the bathroom.

    4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids
    (you may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape). You will hear
    a tremendous washing action provided by the cat. CAUTION: Do not get any
    part of your body close to the gap under the lid.

    5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power wash and
    rinse."

    6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no
    people between the toilet and the outside door.

    7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.

    8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where
    he will dry himself. Relations may be strained for a few days.

    NOTE: For small cats or kittens, Step 5 should be omitted.

    Don't forget the flea dip.

    (and remove automatic bluing agent prior to washing cat)

    But if she did, she'd put a concrete block on top of the toilet seat when she flushed, and then keep flushing until the loud meowwing stopped!
