Tiki's first bath...at home!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I thought I'd give it my best shot at giving Ms. Tiki a bath tonight. I had never taken on quite a task before, but I figured she needs to get used to it sometime!

At this point, I'm not sure which one of us got the bath since I'm drenched from head to toe! Poor little babe...she yowled like no other! She had a death grip on my neck & buried her little nose in my arm pit. Now she's totally ticked off & can't quite decide which part of her she needs to reclean!

Here's some pic's that I snapped quickly afterward. The quality isn't the best, but they're too cute not to share!

Enjoy!

My favorite pic:

Shell,
Those photos are brilliant- and I can relate to this- particularly the first pic which seems to be saying 'what have you done to me Mum!!'
She looks just like my 10 year old Bibby after a bath
I had Bibby for nearly 18 months before I brought home a kitten- had always been too afraid to bath her.
I was bathing my kitten regularly- and one day decided to give Bibby a bath- used a mesh cat bathing bag that I bought at a pet store.
Was surprised at how good she was- although the Siamese type yowls started after 5 minutes. Its been easier (and quieter) since- she seems to like being clean.
Life is too short for me to blow dry her- although Beau now just lies there li ke a damp sack looking miserable when I dry him.
Have to dig out my photos of a wet Bibby!!
Cheers
Catherine

Shell, forgot to tell you what a great job you did giving Tiki her bath! What a challenge that must have been!
post #16 of 27
Oh, yea!! I can see them now, hehe . . . maybe it was just something wrong with my comp last night. Those pic's are SO funny, Shell! She does look mad in the first one! Those just made my day, thanks for sharing!

awwwww Shell - Tiki looks so mad at you in that first photo soooooooooo gorgeous!!!

now for another niave question for the day - why do you give cats a bath? I have never heard of anyone doing this before I found this site - isnt it enough that they clean themselves?

Oh Shell, Tiki looks so cute after her bath. You did such a wonderful job.

Has she recovered completely now?

Awww Thanks Guys! She's fully recovered from the "torture" that she endured & now is full of loves like usual. She was mad at me all evening & must have still be miffed about it during the night since I had the bed to myself. Thankfully I don't plan on doing this on a weekly basis, more like once a month or so. Hopefully the next time will go a little smoother on both of our parts!

As for a reason why I give her a bath, it's mainly because she's not very good at giving herself baths. She's also really prone to getting bad mats in her fur, so I had her shaved down. I'm hoping by bathing her once in a while & brushing her on a daily basis will cut down on the mats. It was kind of shocking to see how much dirt she had on her fur...not sure how she can get so dirty since she's strictly indoors! But she's Ms. Mischievous, so I'm sure she's getting into things that she probably shouldn't be!

Thanks again everyone!

Sorry about the pictures not showing. Looks like Photobucket was down for a while but apparently they're up & running!

Thanks again everyone! I'm definitely sending Anne the first picture!
