It's all That Thing's Fault!

We're having bath-times twice a week and it's all That Thing's fault!

Before That Thing came, mine Mummy bathed me once a week. The heat can be murdewous over here, so I do not mind bathing much; in fact I wook forward to it sometimes, because after a bath, I usuawwy feel so comfortable I can sweep for a squiwwion years after that.

But because That Thing stinks so, mine Mummy thought that a bath a week just isn't enough. So he's been having baths TWICE a week! And mine Mummy thought, since That Thing is having a bath, it wouldn't do any harm to bathe me as well.

Perhaps I've to expwain things a bit. You see, we bathe together (of course I wouldn't do that if I had a choice, but there's quite a wack of equawity for us without the opposable thumbs awound here), so when That Thing is going to have a bath, mine Mummy simply bundles me together with him into the bathwoom, shampoo us together, and then hose us down together. Sometimes for an extwa tweat, mine Mummy would fill an enormous pail with water and wet That Thing jump in and pway with the water. He weawwy ENJOYS that! Totawwy incompwehensible!

Mine Mummy says she's weawwy fortunate to have two kitties who have no pwobwems with bathing, but I'm beginning to think perhaps I should start giving her some pwobwems! Two baths a week! Twue, the weather's hot over here, but TWO baths a week!
Don't you think it's a bit too much?

That is a lot of bathing! I have never had a bath before. Not even once! I do not think I would enjoy it.

Oh, no, your mom is going to ruin it for those of us who never get baths. We felines here have never had one, just a quick touch up in an emergency. Just the doggies get an occasional bath.

Boy, you must put all four paws down and say NO. Bathing is just unhygenic if you ask me. FAZ

Any baths a week is bad! I has only had baths one time in my life, and that was when I was at home for the very first time in my life. See, I needed a flea bath. It was TERRIBLE! Torture is probably the right word for it. Hmph. I am very sorry Boy.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I can't believe you let her do once a week! I've been bathed exactly 2 times in my life and each went not so well. I get that whole YOU"RE TRYING TO KILL ME look in my eyes and fight as hard as I can. Sorry you have to have an extra bath!

I never have baths - only wipe dwons and that's bad enough. Any idea why Beethoven smells so much?

goldenshade said...

I have never placed one paw in a bath and that is how it will stay!

One-Eyed Jack said...

Baths!!! Ahhh!!! I haven't had a bath since I was a kitten and my OTW only washed my paws 'cause I walked in poop by accident! And I'm still running away from the bathtub when she runs water in it 12 years later! (I was really really really little, honest! Well, and there was that one time she and the Big One had to hose me down at the side of the road with a hose to wash campers with, 'cause I had peed in my PTU, but that was only because my OTW got up wayway early and scooped me up and put me in the PTU before my first morning litter visit and I really really really had to go!)

Don't worry about the Thing, Persephone always pounces me and then starts hollering that I'm trying to kill her when I lay the whapdown on her. Mommies don't believe it.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Wow, twice a week!?! That's incredible! And together? Wow. You must really behave well. We get bathed once a week (it's necessary for our Sphynx) but we are bathed one at a time, and it takes both of our humans to bathe us. Dragonheart is a good boy, and sits there and let's them wash him, but Merlin squirms and squirms.
