OMG! That looks just like my cat when it is bath time

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:46 AM

The definition of "Nyerrrrhe"!

Very forgiving kitty!!! Awwww

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:47 AM

what the :( This strikes me as the "cute but sad" portion of our week.


 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:48 AM

this was such a cute to sad scrolldown. cats don't need to be bathed, and pictures of the terror in their eyes as it happens is so not cute.

i must concur with LO

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:53 AM

true, it's sad, but sometimes you have to bathe them! it gets rid of excess hair (otherwise mine throws up hairballs way too often) and makes their hair extra soft. for several weeks! plus they smell nice.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:54 AM

Eau Mon Dieu!!!!

FANTASTIC! He's so droopy! It's like Photo Bonus Friday all in one über-entry!


(Lola -- this cat did need the bath, for some kind of skin condition.)

And by the way? FIRST POST. Nyahh.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:55 AM

Awesome! I love the little open-mouth kitty panic with big wide eyes.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:58 AM

Actually according N.Y.C. (the cat's owner), the cat has some sort of skin disease. So, it needs a special bath in order to get better.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 07:59 AM

AWWWWWWW POOR KITTY!! lol! Zee kitty is so cute though!!!! <3<3 ^_^ *huggles zee cute kitty :3*

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:03 AM

to Sandra K.
yes my vet recommends to either bring the cat to the groomer's once every month, or try washing her myself.
Although cats can clean themselves sufficiently, brushing them frequently, and bathing them does, like sunnykat says, get rid of the excess hair, hairball issues; too much hair in the digestion system is not exactly great for them; and plus the groomer or you can be in touch of what's going on in your cat's body,...
you'll be able to see any oddities of your cat's health such as ticks, fleas, bumps that may suggest cancer or skin issues, ear infections etc

According to the kitty's photo album, he had a skin disease...poor kitty, i hope he wasn't too itchy.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:09 AM

Where's the terrifying "Psycho" music when you need it. Those eyes, THOSE EYES!!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:09 AM

Eee! I posted this a while back, I'm so glad to see it got submitted and made it. I love Milk!

I think that last face is the grudge face. That cat is completely filing this incident away in his mental files. Human's got something unpleasant coming, soon.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:16 AM

Is the cat peeing in the penultimate photo? A lot of cats will involuntarily pee when they're scared or upset.

And yes, that last picture isn't contentment, it's "I'll get you for this! Mark my meows!"

I'm thinkin' kitty's maybe been declawed, or else you wear long sleeves. (Or armor, if you've got it). Very pretty kitty-- he looks like a sweetie. (I hope I'm wrong, and he's just exceptionally docile and has a very tidy manicure.)

That is the most pitiful thing I've ever seen - I got teary eyed...poor kitty. :(

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:27 AM

This is so freakin' HIGHlarious I couldn't stop laughing at my desk! And he looks so relieved that it's over. What a little booboo!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:29 AM

Poor witty. This is one of the saddest but funniest series of photos I have ever seen.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:33 AM

ok, if a cat needs a bath for a skin condition, who am i to argue. but i still have to say that traumatized kitty eyes are too sad. and not cute. p.s. sunnykat there are these rubber brushes that are really effective for eliminating tons of excess hair which might help. my cats can't get enough either - they love it.

So close to a Cats 'n' Racks entry... yet so far.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:37 AM

I'm not going to get in the "cute or sad" or "baths: evil torture" discussions, which are doing great without my input.
I'm just here to say this cat is a "scottish fold", which, added to the fact that he is a yellow tabby, makes him the Greatest.Cat.In.The.Universe.

peace out, y'all

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:39 AM

Nope, this kitty isn't declawed. In the full set, you can see all 10 claws, out and fierce. He's just apparently well used to being handled.

My boy cat, Nemo, would be like that (though we've never had to bathe him). He never, ever, EVER scratches or bites, even when you accidently hurt him (like clipping the claws and getting a little too close to the nerve) -- he struggles a bit, but no claws or teeth.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:47 AM

nothing funnier than a wet cat!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:49 AM

See: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hyc/122649493/in/set-72057594097798552/
for proof of his claws. That is one well-behaved cat.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 08:49 AM

you beat me to that comment, SuperEdo! :) nyu! >^._.^<

I've had to wash my cat 2 times. Once, when she knocked over a bowl of raw chicken breasts, splattering raw chicken juice all over herself. And once when she got motor oil on her self from underneath the car. Her yowling during the bath haunts my nightmares, and she made sure that the experience was 10 times worse for me than it was for her. The claws...The claws...

Re: declawing-- thanks for posting the link. I'm very glad to see kitty's toesies are intact. That officially makes him one of the most well behaved kitties in the world, as he is clearly not enjoying himself. (But I have to say, it's pretty funny, even though I do feel bad for the guy.) Kitty cat bathtime is usually not fun for anyone involved, but they're sooo funny looking when they're wet!

We bathe our cats about once a month. Aside from the excess hair, they seem to get oily. (They are indoor kitties, so don't have the bonus of bushes to help them shed - and they hate brushes) If you have someone in the house who is allergic to kitties like we do, bathing them helps out a lot with that. People who are allergic are actually allergic to kitty saliva - which is all over their fur from them cleaning themselves!

Now...one of my kitties will tolerate being washed, but she hates being dried. My siamese sounds like he's being killed (although he doesn't struggle too much), but loves to be dried. Go figure!

As for this kitty - he's so cute! I love the ears on a Scottish Fold - and his eyes remind me of "Puss N Boots" from Shrek2!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:21 AM

Oh. Oh. Oh!!! What is there to say? This is the ultimate.

One of my cats fell into a mud puddle once and had to be washed. He looked so pathetic and adorable, and the other cat just snarked at him from the other corner of the bathroom.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:27 AM

the sequence of these photos is BRILLIANT.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:30 AM

Uhm. The sequence is pretty much defined by the bathing process... I mean, you can hardly dry a kitty *before* you dunk him.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:35 AM

hooray! these are great pics.

boo! I just remembered I need to give my cat her semi-annual bath.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:40 AM

HEY! this kitty looks like the cat-in-boot from Shrek 2! sooooooo cute. i knew this kitty looked familiar!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:42 AM

The pupils! Gigantic!

poor baby. his eyes look so terrified. and then in the last one he looks hella mad

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:45 AM

CATS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE BATHED - so this attempt to get cute pictures is just darn right cruel.

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:52 AM

Tigger, you beat me to that comment about puss n boot. ;) Lola O: thanks for the rubber brush advice, i was actually going to switch my current wire brush to something that feels less rough, though my kitty seems to love it nonetheless. we'll give the rubber ones a try!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:54 AM

I know lots of people have given legitimate reasons why cats should be washed, but honestly I think it's so unfair. Our cats don't have problems with hairballs and we've never washed them. I also suspect cats hate the smell of our idea of being clean, they probably prefer their own kitty smell. I'd never put my cat through that kind of stress... And if someone's allergic to cats, why have one?!

 |  Apr 14, 2006 at 09:56 AM

Guys. The cat had a skin allergy, and the vet recommended bathing. No one is being cruel to the cat in question. In some of the pictures in the full set, you can see he has some sores as a result of the allergy; clearly the owner is trying to help the poor thing.

Of course we shouldn't be bathing cats every week. An occasional bath is not going to hurt a cat, and is not being cruel to the creature. I love cats. I have two of my own. I don't have to bathe them because they are indoor cats and also because they keep each other groomed. But I'm aware that there are times bathing might be neccesary.

Oi, drama. Let's look at how adorable and beautiful Milk is :)
