roxy is an outdoor cat and he's also satan spawn.. So this means he likes to play in tree sap, tar, and anything else sticky. I spot clean him now and then, but I wanted to give him a full bath to make sure he's all comfy.. Sometimes he'll get twigs stuck to his back from the pine sap.. It's very interesting what he can get into..
The thing is, although he's outdoor he likes to come in when he wants, and I try to accommodate, but there are sometimes he's just dirty. He does clean himself, but he cleans himself the way I clean my house--half assed. Sure eventually he gets clean but usually he's too busy reaping havoc. The thing about him is, we have wetlands on some of our property, and he thinks nothing of walking through a few inches of water.. So it should be easy right?? WRONG-O!! He also loves to play in the rain. I'm always worried he's going to catch cold with how wet he always is, but he won't let me clean him. Plus he always has mud up to his tummy because he loves mud puddles.
I can't wait to get him inside for good, but I have to wait til I move, and even then I have a feeling he will be getting himself dirty.. I shoulda named him pig pen.. Something funny is he loves to stick his nose in the water bowl.. He does it like a million times a day for no reason, then he'll knock the water bowl over and play in the water. Did I mention he's kind of feisty?
