Poor kitty! The kitty boys had lots of baths as kittens, thanks to an intestinal bug caught eating an infected grasshopper. Of course, Persian “floof” also catches “stuff”, and water is the easiest way to get it out of a kitty boy’s fur. It also pointed to the need for hair cuts for hygienic reasons.
Dougy had a better day in this video!
Dougy in front, of course.
An infected grasshopper! 😱
An expensive one, too. Being ill with it also meant they couldn’t be sold, which meant I got two pedigree kittens for nothing. Of course, I ultimately paid $1400 in veterinarian bills till they were over it!
Good grief. Mind you, I know how it feels. Le Roi has the indignity of being the most expensive cat in the history of his rescue, having racked up treatment to the tune of £12,000 in 15 months. Yes, twelve thousand pounds.
WOW! Le Roi indeed!
These are precious videos, Doug. Lucio had his share of Klignons in the tail feathers, too. Wynken, our only longhaired kitty now, gets them on occasion.
I’ve enjoyed sharing them. More to come, then I should post some current photos.
Just precious videos! I’ve had some floofers and have had to do a little clipping of tail ends too.
Yes, even a clean kitty has bad moments at the litter box!
Such cute videos, Doug. The second video put Dougy to sleep!
Glad you’ve enjoyed the, John!
Oh yes, your are lucky to have these sweet cats in your life, Doug!
I agree! I marvel that I just lucked into getting them in the first place.
I’ve had a few long haired cats and had to keep their hindquarters clipped. Only Mollie had to get occasional baths because of “stuff” mangling in the fur. Somehow it always happened at 11 p.m. Just when I was either getting ready for bed or in bed.
LOL! Yep! It took a bit of getting used to, but one learns to make haste removing it, especially when using water, for the cat’s comfort and the human’s safety!
