So i put steve in charge of washing, and grooming one cat yesterday. just one! Lily..shes the easiest about her bath. She screams at you but thats about it..sits nicely..

well..this evening i went to groom her and found at first what i thought was matts.....turned out to be soap residue! poor little thing. the brush took out a few clumps before mom could see what it was. on a whole you cant tell. she has alot of hair..but i was upset..she has a show in a month. *waa* of course this is the same kitten who hacked off her whiskers in the fan *lol*

So she got rinsed super good again..and is now MAD At ME....well gee i didnt not rinse her good last time..lol

I just have to tell you, too...I am in LOVE with Ares....he is such a thief of hearts!!! Lily, too....I love their sweet little faces!

When I give the critters baths, they look at Joe like he's going to save them from mean old mommy....little do they know, I'm doing them a favor by NOT letting him do it!!

Did it ever strike you that it might be a deliberate attempt at sabotage - so that he ISN'T left to bath the cats any more? At least he tried though, poor dear. You can tell he did at least try to use the soap. That's gotta stand for something!

Poor Lily's had a rough couple of days! Now she must be so beautiful and fluffy sparkling clean!

What is it with guys and bathing the animals? Sunny bathed Kellie ONE TIME (you haven't seen hair until you've seen the coat on a show-bred Peke ...) and I discovered that not only did he not rinse her out very well, he didn't check her coat first and I had mats like you wouldn't believe because she hadn't been combed out first. He is no longer allowed to bathe the dog . I'm about ready to give the boys a bath, which should be fun as they haven't had any while in my posession although they did have one right before coming home.

They are a LOT bigger now ...

LOL i never thought of that..maybe he is trying to sabatoge it! so he is only left to his duties of being the towel holder! Shame on him! but yes he gets points for actually useing soap!
