Riley and Xander - get a bath!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Riley and Xander both had a bath today Riley was due for one, he gets one every 3 or 4 months because his long fur gets smelly, so I figured we would give Xander one too! He wasn't as calm about it as Riley but he did very well, and didn't use his claws or teeth!

Here are some before pictures. They were snuggling on the couch together for a few minutes!




And then here are the after pictures! They are still drying off

This one looks like they are saying "did they get you too?"


Riley looks thrilled


this pic of Xander cracks me up!


They smell much better now I used Earthbath cat shampoo which has a wild cherry scent. Riley got conditioner too because he tangles so bad.

Well, I've had cats in the past that went NUTS when I tried to bathe them. Some will hurt you! My two now aren't too bad, but it does take two people to get the job done.

Do a google search on "How to Bathe a Cat." Funny essay, and not far off for most cats who have not had them on a regular basis.

OMG look at Xander's face! Poor guy.

Bea got a bath last night, too. She sits pretty well in the sink, but if she sees the opportunity to leave, she's gonna take off.

Awwww............. They're totally buddies now! I LOVE the pic of Riley and Xander "talking" to each other after the bath!!!!

Poor kitties - look SO pathetic all wet. MUST give the good boys extra treats!

Awww, just look at those boys. They're best buds through it all.

That last one of Xander is classic.

They can be easy to bath if you take it slow, and help them realize that there is nothing to fear.

I have a kitty who splooshes and plays in the water bucket...the one we keep out for the dogs...Lol! All the cats seem to actually prefer drinking from the bucket, but Latifah will sit there and dip her paws in it too, and then she comes and jumps on your lap

LOL - Xander looks thrilled to death!

That's a great description! They give you that look like "why me? what did I do?"
