Ha!!! Poor Clint ... it's a ballooooon!! (I hope). (2.00 / 18)
That cat with the worried eyebrows is great.

Kittehs don't need baffs:


Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


I've never bathed a cat in my life. (2.00 / 16)
Mine have always had short hair and lived exclusively indoors. When they get too old to bathe comfortably because of teh arthuritis, I use brushes and damp cloths to help with their hygiene.

Dogs? I've bathed more dogs than I care to count. They're pretty easy, as long as you get out of the way before the self-dry mechanism kicks in.

I have had to bathe a few cats. (2.00 / 14)
We have had cats who decided to poop all over themselves on the way to or from the vet. I do not recommend bathing cats if you value your skin.

A cat climbed my face when I was about nine. (2.00 / 12)
A litter of dachsund puppies treed a neighbor's cat in a short tree. Instead of doing the smart thing - picking up the puppies and taking them home - I picked up the cat.

Remember Merthiolate? I was a pretty sight for a couple of weeks.

[ Parent ]
I had to (2.00 / 12)
bathe one... he had ringworm!! So I had to use a special shampoo and bathe him twice weekly.

Thankfully it's when he was a kitten, and he didn't struggle much.  Even if I were to bathe him now (full grown), I think he'd be okay.  But he's pretty good about these kinds of things.

And then when Kitten arrived all filthy and covered in grease, I had to bathe him, too!  Gah.  Dumbly, I should have thought to clip his nails.  But he was just a kitten, too... although I do still have one particularly visible scar from that episode.  After washing him like 3 times, he was pretty exhausted and let me do what I needed to do.  But I know I could NEVER give him a bath now!


[ Parent ]
You reminded me - I did bathe a cat once. (2.00 / 10)
Someone poured gasoline on my parent's Siamese. He came streaking home, in great pain, so Daddy and I bathed him immediately before taking him to the vet.

Growing up, almost everyone had both cats and dogs, and none of them were fenced in or housebound. We had a large poodle who napped in the middle of the street (when he wasn't sleeping on top of Daddy's car) and people carefully drove around him.

I can't imagine that today....

[ Parent ]
no... (2.00 / 10)
now they'd use that poodle as a target. :(

[ Parent ]
Yes! (2.00 / 3)
Growing up, almost everyone had both cats and dogs...

At one point my mother, NOT an animal lover, allowed us to have three cats, a dog, white mice and some tropical fish. All at once. Mom drew the line, however, at birds, which always frightened her.

There are, in every age, new errors to be rectified, and new prejudices to be opposed. ~Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)


[ Parent ]
We also had some little turtles. (2.00 / 2)
Two of them. Daddy got transferred a lot, and the packers and movers would show up and take over the house. Mother was unpacking the kitchen in a new house, carefully unwrapping each package, when one of the turtles dropped into her hand. Both of them were alive, although more than a little dehydrated and hungry. :)

The best bath for a big dog is a shower. (2.00 / 12)
With them.

That way they cannot see the Road To Freedom. Besides, you aren't going to keep your clothes unmarred, so you may as well skip that part and come out clean, yourself.

Exactly! (1.90 / 10)
I took many showers with a yellow Lab named Cindy.

LOLLOL!

Remember when we would have trollz visit? That guy was complaining that we should not be celebrating cats because they carried diseases!! We gave him the what-for, if I recall.

with mammary cancer... (2.00 / 12)
in cats, it's usually not a good prognosis.  the vet explained many times the cancer will pop up in the lungs - which is why she's being monitored with x-rays.

She was able to remove the tumor with a lot of measure surrounding, so she was hopeful all was removed and that we caught it early enough.

Sula is 9 years old this year... and is entirely a Mama's girl.  

So I'm hoping we've beat the odds with her!  :)

Cat with Eyebrowz haz a question (2.00 / 16)

My mother's favorite answer: "That depends." (2.00 / 13)
I don't know if it's a money problem or a carrier problem. Sometimes money problems have easier answers than carrier problems. :(

Tardar looks angry ... Sam just looks sad and worried. (2.00 / 12)
When I saw him in triciawyse's diary I had to go find out who he was. Makes your heart break, doesn't it?

time...it seems to move so slowly until that day, when it doesn't.


THAT is one purring pootie! (2.00 / 11)
Some gifs beg for sound. I would listen to that whenever I get stressed out.

No, but I remember people putting "pooties" in their tags just to get attention. (1.86 / 7)
Bastids!

Me telling you about that wonderful Community Quilt and Valentine's Unicorn I used to own? Guess who claims them as her's now. ;-)

There's a solution for that, Michele. (2.00 / 9)
Moar pootie pads! My cats are crazy about my quilt, but they'll stay off it if there's a pootie pad nearby.

3 Pootie Pads (2.00 / 8)
2 cats and 3 pootie pads and Pixie insists that she wants the quilt. Sigh! Mom should never have told her she was a little Princess.
