a little black cat says...

baths are not cool

well...I had a bath Saturday. Mom was real quick, but it was scary. I was shaking so much she felt me vibrating through all the towels. She felt bad, but there was so much dirt that came off me with the rinse water, she thought maybe I would end up not being a black kitty after all! Silly mom. I looked like a drowned rat with my skinny tail. But now, mom says I am softer than velvet & so shiny & clean. I feel pretty good too - I attacked that milk ring & killed it - I made sure mom was safe from that bad ol milk ring! All I gotta get under control is the pooting. Mom says I can clear a room when I use the box. So maybe it is my tummy adjusting to good food still. I eat only kitten food, 99% wet, with only a few kitten kibbles as a treat at night. When I was outside us feral cats got fed the best food mom could afford, but with 8 of us out there, it was 9 Lives canned and Boots & Barkley dry. So I guess my system is still adjusting to higher protein. So while my butt might be a bit stinkish, my fur smells like baby powder! Smitty even helped lick the water off to dry me! He seems to be getting better, and playing more gentle. I even played with Maizy, which Smitty tells me is an honor she rarely bestows! And Tigger let me lay next to him on the couch!
Well, time for a nap before dinner...squeaks & silent meows, Felix

Sorry you had to take a bath and you were so scared, but look at the results. Feeling clean just makes you feel better. I hope you're over the pooting. I had that problem because I ate too much of the adult food when I was a kitten. Daddy's friends came over and the litterbox was in the corner. I pooted in there and the only person who didn't react was the one person with no sense of smell. That's when Daddy decided to move the litterbox and add a second one. We probably don't need two anymore since Sarge is gone, but we're used to two now. Keep up the good work!

I agree, bathies are not cool! But I bet you smell good and your fur is really soft and shiny.

Squeaks,
Nadi
