  • Cat Washing as a Martial Art - by Bud Herron

    Video taken from original article by Bud Herron

    Partial excerpt --

    "Some people say cats never have to be bathed. They say cats lick themselves clean. They say cats have a special enzyme of some sort in their saliva that works like new, improved Wisk dislodging the dirt where it hides and whisking it away.

    I’ve spent most of my life believing this folklore. Like most blind believers, I’ve been able to discount all the facts to the contrary, the kitty odors that lurk in the corners of the garage and dirt smudges that cling to the throw rug by the fireplace.


    The time comes, however, when a man must face reality: when he must look squarely in the face of massive public sentiment to the contrary and announce: “This cat smells like a port-a-potty on a hot day in Juarez.”
    When that day arrives at your house, as it has in mine, I have some advise you might consider as you place your feline friend under your arm and head for the bathtub:


    Know that although the cat has the advantage of quickness and lack of concern for human life, you have the advantage of strength. Capitalize on that advantage by selecting the battlefield. Don’t try to bathe him in an open area where he can force you to chase him. Pick a very small bathroom. If your bathroom is more than four feet square, I recommend that you get in the tub with the cat and close the sliding-glass doors as if you were about to take a shower. (A simple shower curtain will not do. A berserk cat can shred a three-ply rubber shower curtain quicker than a politician can shift positions.)
    Know that a cat has claws and will not hesitate to remove all the skin from your body. Your advantage here is that you are smart and know how to dress to protect yourself. I recommend canvas overalls tucked into high-top construction boots, a pair of steel-mesh gloves, an army helmet, a hockey face mask, and a long-sleeved flak jacket.... - go to webpage for more...

      Love the video you posted with the kitty who loves the bathtub! Peeps may get used to bath time if you bathe him often enough as a kitten - just like all the show cats that are bathed/groomed before every show. The cat in the video that I posted obviously was used to the water - they had to fake making her look like she was trying to get out (better than using a bath-hating cat and testing those gloves and that visor).

      My 7th grade teacher's Siamese loved to swim in their pool and even had his photo story published in the paper --

        there are two text versions of 'how to bathe a cat' that are very funny, but i can only find one and that's not the one i wanted to post. the good one is a list of about 20 steps or so and involves getting the cat, applying bandages to yourself, getting the cat again, visiting the emergency room at the hospital and, well, you get the idea
