I hate the smell of wet cat

But not nearly as much as I hate the smell of poopy cat. You may remember that our cat has some hygiene issues. Lately, he's been leaving cat poo smears all over the couches and our shower. Yesterday things came to a head when we saw a giant poo cat print on our white bathroom rug. And so, the cat got a bath. First we (and by we, I mean Ry) brushed him. We apparently freed a much smaller, quieter cat.
And then we bathed him. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of that because it took both of us to physically restrain him to keep him in the sink. Even then, he nearly escaped a few times.
Here he is, just after his bath. For such a big, fat cat, he has a sad little rat tail, don't you think? Today he smells a whole lot better, but he's still shedding like crazy if you so much as think about petting him. Good times.

We actually wash our cats every other month or so. Makes them softer and better smelling. If you do it enough, they do calm down eventually. Kiwi used to fight like a banshee and now she mostly just vocally protests.

Also - Chief does have a sad little rat tail.

Yeah, we need to get in the habit of doing it more regularly. I was afraid Chief was going to wake up the boys he was so loud. Hopefully he will calm down a little.

Moe man gets a bath about once a month. As you know he used to shed like crazy as well. Since we have been bathing him, he almost does not shed at all. It was one of the best things we ever did. Also because he is so fat, the bath helped clean areas he couldn't reach.
