A fine and pleasant bath

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I have today off That is great, the car is at the shop and I have a Very sore achilles tendon, so I am just taking the day easy today. It is in the 50s, overcast, and slightly rainy, so after a couple of hours on the internet, I decide that it is time for a hot bath.

I lit some yummy smelling vanilla and apple cinnamon candles, drew a nice bath, got a book and my cell phone (in case the shop calls about the car) and settled in. As soon as I got nice and comfy (difficult for 6'1" in a standard bath tub ) what did I see? Two little tortie faces looking very worried The worried looks were accompanied by mews, chirps, and various other little sounds. Finally they decided that I wasn't in trouble and they just sat there with their paws over the edge of the tub watching me intently. They they noticed the candles....both of them just Had to investigate those funny-smelling bright things despite the many warnings of burned whiskers. After this, the cell phone became fair game since it was on the floor. Maybe they were trying to call for help because Mom was surrounded by water

Finally, when all of this activity settled down, I realized that the bath was cold and it was time to get out. I go to step on the towel that I had put out in front of the tub, but it was wadded up in the corner They both look guilty. So for revenge, I plopped them both into the mostly drained tub...I haven't seen much of them since they got out

I wonder if I can trade two Torties for 8-Bit?

Awwww.

Sophie always jumps up onto the side of the bath when i'm in, and the other night while i was drying myself i bent down to dry my legs and my fat rear knocked her in

That's the second time that's happend, and luckily it was just her legs and bottom that went in and the water wasn't as hot as how i usually have it, but poor baby

She wandered off to lick herself dry and i'm sure she must have been saying "Thanks a bunch mum!!"

When I was little I had a gray cat that used to sit on the side of the tub when I was in it. He fell in on a regular basis.
Now I have Kahlua who's fave thing in the world is to be rubbed down with a wet washcloth....

I know that is not funny Susan!

Kiko and Laura will actually jump in the water when its only about 1 inch, but I am always so worried that when they start licking themselves there will be soap residue that wouldnt be good for them to ingest. So I have to wash thier feet

It's not?

Sabina's my water baby. She comes tearing in when she hears the bathtub running. I have to be careful to start the water lukewarm since she jumps in and starts lapping up water...backing up as the water creeps closer. At the last moment when her precious tootsies would get one drop of water on them, she jumps out.

I think that I have tortured both of my babies enough with baths that they know not to get within arms reach of the bath tub when I am in there or they will end up in the bath

Bakker usually comes running once I turn on the bath water.

The best though was Sheba-she would "walk" across me while I was relazing in the tub.
Shee might have gotten a paw wet but didn't seem to mind that!!

Tiger plays with his water bowl and would lay in the dry tub but once the water starts going, he and Angel run for it! I've had once instance where both of them were on the edge of the tub on the other die of the shower curtain as I was taking a shower. I pulled back the curtain, flicked water on them and watched them scatter! I know, I'm an evil meowmy sometimes...

I'm terrified of deep water, baths included.

However from the mid 1980's to about 1992 I lived in a house that didn't have a shower, just one of those old fashioned claw foot bath tubs with the old fashioned faucet and taps. I tried buying one of those rubber hoses that you put on the faucet to convert it to a shower of sorts but it kept popping off. So I had to bite the bullet and have baths.

Over time I actually found myself sort of enjoying a daily bath around 6 pm. I would take in a book and a drink or my small portable TV and put it on the toilet seat, get it set to a channel that had something good to watch for a couple of hours and then just soak and either read or watch tv. I would even end up falling asleep and waking up to ice cold water

Since I moved from there I've lived where there are showers and since then I have only had maybe 6 baths because due to my fear of water showers are more in my comfort zone.

Sometimes I think about having a bath but between my fear and my mobility problems which make it hard to get up from the floor/tub, I stick to showers.

Susan you're such a meanie

My cat's aren't the bad ones about me taking baths- it's my two huge dogs! When I went to Bath & Body Works for a sale a few months back, i got a little rubber duckie with my soaps/etc. It's cute. Well the last time i took a bath, Fosters was SOOOO mesmerized by the floating duck that he jumped in the tub and got it I could have killed the dog! He's not little eithor! He's an Australian Shepherd Kojak is the only one out of the cat's that likes to tempt fate and get near the water

I actually have a collection of them myself. I think Jim secretly wants to use them in the tub with him because he keeps buying them for me and I keep putting them in the closet and he keeps buying more.

Ah ha! I had a feeling you had a secret stash of rubber duckies! Poor Jim- maybe you could run him a bubble bath sometime and put all the ducks in there for him. (you can always promise him you'll never tell his guy friends he likes to bathe with rubber duckies)
