Check out the paw floomf on this kitteh

First-time bath-taker "Coco" is also experiencing first-time paw floomfage. She's got, like, built-in leg warmers, Girls! Jealous!?

I dunno.

Coco's the one with the leg warmers, so doesn't that make her the maniac? Dancing like she's never danced before?

Looks like sneaker-freshener kitty needed laundering!

Sheesh Theo.
That's not a human giving the kitteh a bath it's the kitteh from the previous post giving itself a bath after getting a whiff of exactly what oderhz absorbing means.

(note how neatly I've tied the last 3 posts together) LOL

Wow, a rate sighting of a Clydesdale kitten.

LOL Theo!

And those wet floomfy paws look like they'd be really heavy - who was it that wanted more Star Wars AT-AT references?

Oops - I mean rare sighting, although this kitteh does rate high.

Who here gives their kitty a bath? I grew up w. kittys, currently live with a kitty and have lots of kitty experience; I have never, ever bathed a kittay. What gives?

I have had on occassion due to flea infestation outbreak and other health related reasons have had to give kittehs baths.

I've heard some do sometimes like the water but not in my kitteh history. Major DO NOT WANT!

I once had to bathe a kitteh because of phleas. No one enjoyed the experience, I can assure you.

Incontinent kittehs also need baths. :(

Hmmmm. Things are so backwards in my family. My cat actually LOVES baths and tries to "swim" everytime I take one.......I suppose the kitteh defenders would probably give me an award for not letting her get in.......

Thank you Darryl's Mamma! I have been meaning to post that ever since I saw the first cat undergoing a bath on this website. However cute the picture may be, you do NOT, I repeat you do NOT need to give your cat a bath. Unless it fell in a bucket of goo or something, or indeed an outbreak of fleas but otherwise they are perfectly capable of keeping themselves clean!

yep, kittens with fleas. that's the only time I've ever done it.
Not something I'd want to repeat...

I had a cat who was otherwise healthy and mostly sane and he just didn't give two shakes about bathing himself. And he had terrible dandruff. And liked to roll around in dirt whenever he got the chance. So he got bathed. And was a black polydactyl cat like this one and this picture really reminded me of him.

Okay, everyone in your bestest Nancy Sinatra voices:
"These floomfs were made for walking,
And that's just what they'll do,
One of these days these floomfs are gonna walk all over you..."
Excellent job.
As you were...

some aminals, kitty-kitties included, are better at keeping themselves hygienic than others

so then nature (read: a human) has to intercede to keep unsavory 'crumbs' from being dispersed

ahhhh.
Ozzie and Coco could take a baff together and there could be even more paw-leg floofage(?).
sweet lil kitty and such a good girl too. sittin in the water like that! OMG

The cat bathing controversy always makes me laff. Peeps are so authoritative, Never bathe your cats people, never! And then there are like 50 excep-shons to the rule, well, ok, if they gots fleas, or ok, if they are gooey, or ok, if they just smell bad. Why would ANYONE ever bathe a cat unless they had to? Then there is my cat, Obi Wan Nairobi. I shut them in the laundry room, because I was painting floors. I knew they would run across it, and then put paint paw prints all over town. So I put them in the laundry room for their own good. Nairobi put her paws underneath the door, swished it all in the paint, and danced on the laundry appliances. Should I have not bathed her, and let her lick off paint? Oh well, yes, if she's painty...

so CBF - you have three cats? 1)Obi 2)Wan 3)Nairobi???

ceejoe
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:37 PM

LOL, CBF!

Not much of a rule, is it, when the exceptions outnumber the instances when it applies.

AuntieMame
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:41 PM

i can actually hear the *poooooomfffffff!* of the expanding kitteh paws when they hit the water.

jen
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:42 PM

CeeJoe -- no, but I bet all the paintprints made it seem that way

Theo
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:42 PM

I'se confuzzled... she refers to "them"... but it's only one kitteh?

Personally, I just think *everyone* should have multiple cats! :o)

ceejoe
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:44 PM

What if your cat was skunked? Would you just lick him off or bathe him?

confused
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:44 PM

t(ed.) is correct- two cats. The Stupid Bup, and Obi Wan Nairobi. She came with the Nairobi, and it was immediately decided that since Nairobi rhymes with Kenobi, her name needed prequels.

That kitty looks like I feel! C'mere, sweetness... I'll snuggle you in a nice warm towel until we both purr.

Argentee
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:48 PM

I agree, no harm in bathing a cat if they need it...or when they get sprayed by a skunk...I mean they are not wool sweaters...they won't shrink.

Deb
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:50 PM

That's funny Deb wool sweaters. If their afraid of shrinkage they should put a little woolite in.

confused
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Funny, though... they LOOK shrunken when wet.

Theo
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:54 PM

Theo we are still on the subject of cats right?

[aaaargh... - Ed.]

confused
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Yes, but they floof right back up after some cuddles in a warm towel. That is what this little one is looking for...where's my warm towel?

Deb
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Very funny. I could never do that.

Shannon Johnson

Probably the "don't bathe the cat" is self protection since MOST don't like it. I did have to partially bathe a cat once when ..er .. something literally scared the p**p out of him and his whole back quarters were covered in brown "stuff". I didn't think he should wash it off and certainly didn't want him in the house like that. So plunked his rear into a sink of warmish water but he DID NOT WANT. Anyway the point is I doubt anyone's giving the cat a bath for lack of something better to do. It would only be when required for the health/comfort of the cat or human family. Yes?

Mary (the first)
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Yes, the floofing works for both...

Is there any special way to floof? Slow fast or does it really matter?

confused
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 01:02 PM

OMG!!! I give my cat a bath every single day... whether she wants it or not.. Thank goodness I finally read this site to get educated and skooled by people who are so smart and know much more than me! It's amazing I can walk across the street sometimes without being hit by a car. Thank you Internet Educators! Thank youuuuuuu!

jabbadoo YOU WHAT!!!
why would you possibly give your cat a bath everyday?

THEO THEO come see! I'm telling.

Deb
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 01:09 PM

jabb, since you have no clue to lie what soever I have sent over a boy scout to make sure you get across the street safely. And as for the cat I have sent over a toupee which he obviously needs since you've washed all the floof off.

confused
 |  Aug 29, 2007 at 01:17 PM

And since I'm so stupid and can't spell the word life maybe I need to get one. A tutor that is.
