, Tee hee hee!, This is priceless!!! Such a cute pose...and she knows it!!! I LVE Calico Cats!!! I have a Calico cat as well Jee...I know you didn't know. Her name is Gremlin and she is the QUEEN!!! Her Royal Majesty!!!
Well...I actually don't bathe my kitties. I found it far too difficult and exerting for me to fight them, so I just don't. I let them do their own cleaning, and it's just easier for me. When they were kittens I did try to though.
But Gremlin can make herself look gremlin-ly!!! She is a very special kitty for me though! I always tell her, "Nope, sorry, can't feed the Gremlin after midnight!!!" But I feed her anyways. Oh and she's soooo FAT!!!
No, as a general guide, it's not good to bathe kitties ... they are not like dogs; normally, they don't require baths except when they are actually soiled. If they are free-ranging kitties, they may require bathing from time to time when they get dirtied, but for indoor cats, there is no necessity. In fact, bathing washes away their natural oils and can give rise to skin problems.
Nah. My kitties don't get soiled that badly. Most of my kitties have very nice soft coats.:nod Actually, only one kitty, a calico, bites her hair and will pull it out. So, she must be sprayed with an aloe spray with hydro-cortisone in it, for hot spots, and stuff like that. Then she'll leave herself alone.
ahhhhh ... and therein lies the danger! When you fall into the trap of thinking "I already have xxx number of cats; one more won't make that much difference in space/time/effort" ... then soon, it's another one more, and another .... IO have twenty at the moment ...
Sorry, but I don't support the buying of cats when there are so many out there on the streets and in shelters, looking for homes. They are either taken in from the streets (abandoned or injured) or given up by their previous humans for whatever reasons.
ahhh ... I don't know how you feel on this issue, and I don't want to offend you if you do buy your cats, but at the same time, I don't want to hide how I feel on the matter ... hmmm, am I making any sense?
ahhh ... of course! that's JB's gold-and-white colouring! But from the proportions, looks more like JB's baby pic! By the way, is 'JB' short for something? Our JB is 'JellyBean' ... coz her scent was like a jellybean when she was a baby ... this is she ... [link]
