Dear Cat Owner,

We need to have a talk . . .

While you give me, man's best friend, a bath quite often, you have yet to bath the family cat even once.

I know, I know . . .

I can hear your excuse already.

It's that old wives' tale about never bathing a cat. It's all hogwash.

Cats need to be bathed as often as dogs . . . more often actually since they are constantly licking themselves. Their hair must be covered in dried spit!

ICK!

In case you are unsure how best to go about bathing the family feline, below you will find my detailed instructions for washing the cat . . .

  1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
  2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water. Lift both the lid and the toilet seat.
  3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
  4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. (You may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape.)
  5. CAUTION : Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for any purchase they can find. The cat will self-agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from your toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
  6. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power wash and rinse" which I have found to be quite effective.
  7. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
  8. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
  9. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where he
    will dry himself.

I am sure you will find this method very helpful. Please let me know when you plan to bath the cat. I want to watch.

Sincerely,
The Dog
