Good one Mare!

BTW, I have a few more too! One of my "neighbors" complained that I had too many "uncaged animals". I called the association to ask... So I could have three Great Danes but not four Chihuahuas? The woman's attitude totally change when she found out they were Chi's!

It's only fair considering how much crap you have to clean up after a cat...

FLUSH 'N FLUFF

1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water, and have both lids lifted.
3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids (you may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape).
CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for any purchase they can find.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a 'power wash and rinse' which I have found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where he will dry himself.

Sincerely,

The Dog

Many times I have wondered what planet Martha Stewart was from...she became my niece's hero and I heard her say things to her mom such as "Look at that poor woman and how she does so much with so little..." Where is THAT defined as poor? Methinks she and my ex husband, an alien of undetermined origin, were on the same ship...

Unfortunately, half the time I do carry through with the plan and half the time I don't! lol! For instance, when our house was under construction, we had all these lovely old cinder blocks that had character. My thought would be to make an herb garden around my vegetable garden. That we did get done! So, now, I have kitchen herbs on one side and tea herbs on the other side. But, I've been working on making a rag rug for a couple of years now...its in the closet not even close! lol! I think she set the standards too high for us regular folks! We just don't seem to have her team to help us get it done!

Trader Joe's has dryer sheets that are real lavender sachet bags.
I bet those would be good for the pets. Make them smell good... and be ok for everybody health wise, too.

When we had cats it was my husbands job to bathe them. He just held them by the back of the neck and hosed them with the sink sprayer and then soaped them and hosed them again. He was good at it. The cats always snuck into bed with us (which was gross) so they had frequent baths.

A mountain lion ate our cats; since our environment wasn't conducive to cat health we didn't replace them.

Another funny trick that works with doggies! lol! When pups go outside in the rain and come in and smell, well, like a wet dog, wipe them down with a dryer sheet. They smell like fresh laundry instead of wet dog!
Just a helpful tip for the day. My family got a kick out of it when I tried it!

Good point. We went to a dog obedience class once and the instructor told us to use baby wipes or equivalent to "freshen" the dogs as necessary instead of having to give them baths all the time since it does dry their skin (and is a pain!). We have done that alot b/c our dogs love to roll (in the stinkiest stuff they can find).

Yep, Luke and Laura from GH! I watched it religiously in college and then for a couple of years out of college but I have not seen any soap operas in 20 some years.

Glad to hear my cat wasn't as odd as I thought and that other cats do the same things he did!

Giving a cat a bath is not that hard if you know how... All you need to do is secure their front quarters by holding to them with a firm grasp around the joints with one hand and wash them with the other hand. I used to do it all the time when I had cats.

I once had a roomies cat that liked to visit when I would be in the tub. The cat would get on the rim of the tub, and pat the water while I was soaking. Always freaked me out a bit... fearful the cat would slip and fall in.

I'm a dog person, not a cat person but it is a challenge to give my two dogs a bath/shower! Exhausting and I can imagine with a cat that it might be painful as well!

I did have a cat in my 1st apt after college and he was a weird one (Luke and my roomates cat was named Laura -- if you know why then more power to ya). He LOVED to come in the bathroom when someone was showering and peek around the shower curtain. He sometimes jumped in which I found to be very strange for a cat. My boyfriend at the time (now my DH) didn't believe me when I told him until he was showering one morning (OK, let's not go there alright?) and there was the cat! I cracked up when I heard what basically amounted to a shriek!

Hmm, did you miss the joke in 'Jokes You'll Go to Hell for?" There was just a couple of jokes about cats, one about bathing cats...
I've done it a few times. Once I did a 19 pound stray Tom cat that my Mom wanted to adopt. My Dad tried, but couldn't do it, he got too scratched up. I got the job done... mostly... very slowly. Very gently. The Tom had been coated with a horrible grease, so I felt it had to be done.
With a healthy cat- I've not had to do it very often. How did you get into that mess?
