My furbabies are mad at me today. I've decided they are getting old enough that shedding is becoming an issue, and hairballs are innevitable if I don't start brushing them on a regular basis. Plus, it has been a long time since I gave them all a bath--their favorite passtime, of course! So, I designated today as "kitty spa day!" First, I gave them all a quick brushing (which they did not like), then they all got dunked in the soapy water and clean rinse water, dried with a warm towel from the dryer, and got a little time to air dry themselves. They seemed pretty annoyed with me after all that, so we played a little game of "chase the kibble." Finally, everyone started to come around to a little petting....that's when I realized that the bath only served to loosen more fur that needed brushed out! Argh! So, mean meowmy came at them all with that awful brush again! Molly actually seemed to enjoy it, which is good, 'cause she seems to have a never-ending supply of unneeded fur. But Max and Maggie are sitting in the family room in the sun, looking at me like I am just the meanest person on the face of the earth and they would like to pretend I'm not here, thank you very much!!!
