T13: Sebastian's First Shower - Part 1

Sebastian got all sticky (I have no idea how!), and so I had to give him his first shower ever! It was an interesting experience, for both of us, so I decided to make it into a Photo Thursday Thirteen!

When he was actually in the tub, I didn't have any free hands (and no one else was home), so I couldn't get any shots. But I did manage some after he got out.

As you can see, I changed out of my work clothes and into a towel robe, knowing it would be wet work!

Overall, he was really good! He let me get the shower head and wet him up good! The shampoo didn't even bother him that much.

He just seemed really bothered whenever he had been sitting for too long. Then he started fussing!

He basically, with some force, stayed in the tub, but did growl and whine for a lot of the time!

He managed to escape a couple of times, only to be met with a door!

After his shower, he dried pretty quickly!

Ah! He sees something yummy and licks his lips!

Hmm.... a treat! Fish! All three boys are on a raw diet and so they get a treat of canned fish whenever they deserve it!

By this time, he had pretty much forgotten all about his shower!

After he had finished eating, he went to dry off a bit more!

I hope never to have to give him another shower again! (although I know that's not possible!). Thankfully, they are indoor cats and keep themselves super clean and so I don't have to hassle... except when an unknown sticky substance makes an appearance!~

I get a treat after I've been bathed too, Sebastian! Although I get bathed once a week - you are lucky that it was your first ever shower!

Happy 1st shower, Sebastian :D

I wonder what the mysterious sticky substance is...

Wet cat fur for the win!

Do the Bengals like baths? I hear Bengals love water. I've had exactly one bath. For fleas. I just stood there on my hind feet with my scruff held and looked horrified.

Sebastian, you were one well-behaved kitty! Two paws up! I'm afraid I would not behave nearly as well if I had to have a shower.

There aren't enough treats in the world to get me in the bath!!!!!

Poor cat. Bathing felines is never much fun. Happy TT.

My bengals do like the water! I've never tried giving them a bath, but I don't think they would want to sit still - they'd probably want to play!

Thankfully, Sebastian is a maine coon and so was a lot more relaxed!
