I have brought the wrath of 8-Bit, Scratch, and Dr Claw down upon me...

I gave them a bath. Yes, you read that right.

It didn't go as bad as you think, we got Dr. Claw first. First, he hates to be picked up, and cries the entire time you do it. He yowled very loudly, but after a while just sort of chilled out and almost enjoyed it.

Second was Scratch. He was terrified and all he did was let out a small "meep". That is until we got to the rise portion. He then yowled at the top of his lungs and tried to hide behind the toilet.

We took a short break, because my neighbor was pounding on our door thinking we were killing something. When we informed him of the bath, he just shook his head and wished us luck.

Last was 8-Bit. He had figured out that something horrible was happening to his brothers in the bathroom, so he took his nanna and tried to hide. Thank GOD that thing is bright yellow, because it gave him away. He yowled and meowed and yowled some more, but he got clean.

Right now all three of them are glaring at me plotting their revenge.

At least they don't smell like a porta-john any more!

8-Bit just decided that he was going to try to sit in my lap. I lap full of wet kitty is an intresting experience. I think he wanted to share his loathing of the whole thing with me.

I've been thinking about it for a few weeks, but after last nights litter tossing competition I've had just about enough of it.

Oh, as for an image on the litter tossing, imagine this: 8-Bit standing on all fours in the middle of his litter box tossing any pee or poo that isn't his back behind him. Dr Claw and Scratch just sit there and watch it happen. Occasionally they'll get pelted. I clean the boxes twice a day.

You are very brave! I can't wait to hear how they get you back.
How did you bathe them? I think Lucky needs a bath.

oh my, you were a glutton for punishment.

i would LOVE to do this to stoli and luxor - not for the scratches but the entertainment factor

I cannot believe you even contemplated that, let alone did it!
I'm waiting eagerly for the tales of revenge.....Sleep well tonight.

Ah, yes, fodder for much revenge. We'll be waiting for the play-by-play!

You must be feeling awfully lucky to have taken on that task.

We were thinking about it.

In reality, I think I just found a great product too. http://www.drbronner.com/drb_sai_liquids.html

I used the Baby Mild for them, and it worked out really well. They are soft and silky. It was also tons less expensive than the "pet" shampoo that looked a bit dodgy.

What is everyone talking about? You're not brave................You're CRAZY!!!. How do I know that? Because only a crazy person would give 3 of the most ingenious kitties (that seem to be bent of world domination or something) a bath. I'm sure they'll think up something special for revenge.

Maybe you should sleep in a helmet and with some padding or something tonight. I will say a prayer that they have mercy on you!

You are brave to wash all three boys in the same day! Don't feel bad, I washed Lexi and then Tedi, one right after the other. Tedi does better in the bathtub and doesn't feel so intimidated. They are both clean now!
Your boys will plot some kind of revenge for sure, but at least they smell better!

The funny part is they didn't scratch us at all. They just voiced a loud displeasure of their current conditions, and let us know that we were bound for punishment.

Then again... I think I'd rather have the scratches.

8-Bit whispers:

It will be a public revenge - next time you have people over, it will happen.
