I just got my first bath! And let me tell you...that is the LAST time I will ever have a bath. I thought I was going into the bathroom to watch mommy spray water all over herself like she usually does...I dunno why...but noooo she was there to put water on me! Mommy put me on the counter next to the sink that was filled with some water...she tried putting me in there but nope...then she tried doing the half way in...but nope...all I did was climb out and curl up against her chest.
That's when I thought I was safe, but no...she takes glasses of water and pours them on me as I'm supposedly safe. Geeze the water wasn't fun. I looked like a wet rat! Then mommy put some of the baby shampoo on me...which felt pretty good..but I didn't like getting it on my legs...and I gave mommy a tough time getting my belly. Then, comes more water! Mommy got just as wet as I did. She said that if I ever had to get a bath again she would put us both in the bath tube...I don't even wanna know what that is.
But, after I was all rinsed off she wrapped me in a towel and started to dry me off. That's when I started getting really nervous and cold, shivering. Mommy did so blow drying and brushing at the same time as I sat next to her. I didn't wanna stay that long...so as long as I was dryer then I was mommy let me go. She bought me back into 'my' room and now I'm trying to lick all this cleanness of me. I clean myself just fine! Ugh...never doing that again. But I survived!
Note from mommy:
Jasper did really good! He didn't scratch me or meow at all! Though he was really squirmy and I got drenched more times then he did trying to pour the water on his body. I think towards the ending rinses he started to get cold or really nervous cause I could feel him shaking and he was staying put, not squirming as much.
But, all in all it wasn't an awful experience! He acted somewhat like my dog, Kodi does when getting a bath. He'll let you do it but he'll be scared outta his wits the entire time. Well, now Jasper should be completely free of flea dirt! On Monday he goes to get another dose of Revolution and we'll know that the fleas are plaguing him no more!
Thanks all those Catsters for the great bathing advice!
