How To Wash A Cat

Now, you all now I am a mega cat lover .... I found this video on You Tube and just had to share. It is very funny (and very, very true !!!). (You might need to turn off my What's New Pussycat song in the background first, so you can hear the commentary ... just press the stop button on the control in the side panel.)


Have a great weekend.

Take care,

Wrong title - it should be called "How to Outrage a Cat!" lol! One day I shall post what happened when I had to wash Oscar.

Have a good weekend.

Hugs xoxo

Jeanette said...

Meow said...

Robyn ... oooh, I'm looking forward to your post on washing Oscar !!

Jeanette ... yeah, it's pretty bizarre ... hope it helped with cat scratches, though.

Take care, Meow

That was wonderful. Hilarious! Alex, however, found it in-fur-re-ating. Still, I linked you and the video on my today's blog post. (Now, with Alex curled up in a ball and cat napping, I shall watch the video again).

Dawn said...

that was the funniest thing i've seen in a while! Oh my gosh the whole time i was watching i was thinking about the time i actually tried to be nice and give my aunts cat a bath while they were on vacation.....never ever did i go near that cat again!!!

Greeneyes said...

Meow said...

Peter ... glad you enjoyed it. And, I guess I am a traitor ... but only this once !!

Raggedy ... thanks, have a good one.

Nick ... sorry Alex didn't like it (I haven't let Bambi see it !!). Thanks for the link.

Dawn ... hahaha ... fortunately, I have never had to wash Bambi, or my last cat, Ratbag ... they do a pretty good job on their own !! Can't say it is something I wish to try ... I like my body parts without scratches and bits missing !!

Greeneyes ... I have been shredded by a cat in my time, but never through trying to wash it !! Hope your scars fade !! Get yourself a suit just like that one !! Hope your weekend is a warm one (stay inside in front of the fire) !!

Take care, hugs, Meow

PEA said...

ROFL...omigosh that was too funny! hehe It's the look on the cat's face at the end, hilarious! Have a great weekend too Meow:-) Hugs xox

Lee said...

That was fun! I used to wash a cat of mine a few years was just about like that video! lol

Once when I was washing Pushkin, my cocker spaniel came in to see what was going on. I really didn't need her there too! Missy, the cocker spaniel thought I was trying to drown Pushkin and all hell broke loose with me in the middle of it! It was quite a scene! lol

LittleJen said...

That was very funny, I could only imagine doing that to my

Gattina said...

Ha, ha, ha ! I have the written text of what the man said and that already is funny. But it's true, once we gave a bath to Arthur (we had to be two) it was awful ! We both were completely exhausted and Arthur was sitting peacefully on the sofa and .... washed !

Devil Mood said...

Oh that was so good!!
Thank you!
That's probably the only reason I wouldn't want to have a cat...but it's only 45 seconds of your life, I might try it someday :)

Alex said...

I once tried giving my kitty a bath.(the people I got her from weren't too keen on hygiene and had a FILTHY house) NEVER AGAIN did I try such a thing. Not sure who was more traumatized, me or her.

Gwen said...

Hi Meow..
I dont wash my cat,but I had a friend and her daughter always bathed her cat,and believe it or not it seemed to like his bath..
Stay Well xx

Jade said...

Now that was cute, But glad I don't have a cat, LOL, Hugz
PS, I am back, LOL

The Lazy Iguana said...

Did you see the cat bath video I managed to locate?

But really - is it that hard to give a cat a bath? When I have to do this (not often) it is really not that big of a deal. I trim the claws first.

Oh my!

Clare said...

OMG that was hilarious Meow. Thanks so much for sharing :). Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Michael Manning said...

MEOW: This is no joke. I saw Tom Jones at the MGM Grand here in Las Vegas and was 10 feet from the stage. When he started into "What's New Pussycat?" I raised my Margarita and yelled "HEY, MEOW!" Cheers to you!!! For a review come by.

Jenn said...

She needs some extra protection for her mouth. Very funny. I loved the narration and music.

Margaret said...

Hi Meow, have not had to bath my two since they were kittens. Polgara used to shed everything in sight. They have a "dry" clean now with powder and a brush. Thank you for all your kind words of encouragement when I desperately needed it. You see I can not really do without out all my blogging friends after all.
Cheers Margaret


I enjoyed watching your video.
Just dropping to say hello.

Viamarie said...

I enjoyed this very much. Thanks. I needed the laugh today.

Happy Monday!

No_Newz said...

Cute video! And so accurate. LOL!

Neo said...

Meow - ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!

Oh man that was great!!!

My Cody only went for a bath once, I think he was scarred after. :)

Peace & Hugs,

Very instructive video.
Wonder if I can buy such a cat-washer dress at our petshop- if not I'll start a web-shop selling it myself.
If you really want a washable Cat, I'll recommend a Turhish Van. But do avoid shampoo, unless it smells fish. *cause then your cat will finnish the job all by itself.
Really, we have had 3 cats that loves water. But not to be washed by two-legs. They go into the water while watering our garden. Or they do skinny-dipping in the sink...

Great post. I love it


Meow said...

Hi everyone, thanks for all your great comments ... glad you enjoyed the video ... too funny, I thought !! Hope I never have to watch Bambi ... I would need a suit of armour !!
Take care, Meow

Heather in Beautiful British Columbia said...

Oh, that's why I absolutely quit bothering - who needs a clean cat anyway....

Debbie said...

Connie I don't know how you found this but the tears are just steaming I am laughing so hard. And to think I was just wondering if it was warm enough to bath the cats! I don't think so!

Gidday Meow,
That video was so bloody funny. I forwarded this video from You-Tube to a friend who will also no doubt fall about laughing at this little gem.
