First of all, I want to get something straight here. Chibi is my biological mother and Umesaburo is my father. "Mommy" is the human in this household--and we greatly outnumber her. To avoid confusion between Chibi and Mommy, I will henceforth refer to Chibi as Chibi, and Mommy as "The Human." Glad to get that out of the way.
Even before the cat carrier came out, we all sensed that a cat show was in the offing. I would have been happy to go, but it was Lowell's turn, and for some reason it seems that he knew it, because he made himself scarce when it was time for his show bath. He's been looking sort of greasy of late, and after he came out of the bathroom--wow! Gorgeous ears, gorgeous eyes, great muzzle, and once his fur was thoroughly washed (forty minutes!), you could see how silky it really is and the bull's eye classic tabby pattern became more distinct. Lowell is a pretty easy-going guy, but I have to say (even if he is my own brother) that he's not quite as bright as I am. Well, nobody is. Probably not even The Human. He apparently was not really sure what the show bath was all about, and you could hear him yowling now and then in the bathroom as he went through at least eight different treatments, shampoos, and rinses. He won't stand for the hair dryer (well, neither will I), and so The Human put him in a carrier and pointed a futon dryer in his direction. I dry pretty quickly this way, but he's bigger and fluffier than I am, and was still wet when he left the apartment.
