Do the neighbors think we're torturing our cat?
We decided, DH and I, that it was time to give our cat another bath. My mom has gone her whole life without once giving any of her horde of cats a bath, but they're outdoor cats. Ours is an indoor only cat, in a small apartment, so we're in much closer contact with him than she is with hers. We've gotten him to the point where he'll actually come if called, but imagine his surprise when instead of a loving pet or some much desired lap time or wet food, he got a bath. And let me tell you, there was much attempting to escape, and very loud meouwing going on during this whole procedure. It also took both DH and I to perform this chore, me holding him under the water and DH soaping and rinsing. By the end we had one wet cat, also known as the drowned rat, and two very wet people. Our walls are also paper thin, so I'm wondering if our neighbors think we torture our cat every few months. They haven't come knocking to investigate, but that might not actually mean anything, since we hear them yelling at their kids all the time. In the end it was worth it though, we now have one clean and very nice smelling cat... for the next few months.
