Tabby & Tortie Tuesday....

Well, it was bound to happen.....the kittens got a b-a-t-h....

Mom was doing her hair on Sunday (something about a gray color she doesn't like so much). And she grabbed the flea comb (with the really close tines) and ran it through both kittens. Found lots of dirt - and a couple of friends. YIKES!!! So, into the tub they went.

We have gotten questions....do all kittens get baths? When and why? And HOW???

Not all kittens get baths. We don't get them at all. We are self-cleaning, thanks!!!  However, sometimes we have pretty tiny kittens that are....well....messy. So they baths. Mom says in all our kittens, she thinks there have only been 3-4 litters that have gotten the bath.

Bug and the black semi-feral girls got theirs in the kitchen sink. Then mom thought there had to be a better way. So now everyone goes in the shower....yep with her (we know, TMI). Works out pretty well...




They still sound pretty snotty, but mom says they are definitely getting better....


PeeEss: the kittens never leave the floor of the bathtub - mom isn't risking anything more than her ankles. :)

  1. Our mom is squeeing over them and thinks taking them into the shower is a great idea.

    We shudder at the thought....

  7. Showering was a brave thing to do for those kittens. I shudder at the thought of holding a slippery ball of clawed fury!

  10. Sharing a shower with my human sounds like nothing less than torturous!

    Gosh, they're cute!

  17. Your babies are just lovely! And yes, bathing is not pleasant, but sometimes needed to keep extra squeaky clean :-)
