There was no drama between Rhea and Anna today, for a wonder. Mostly because Rhea provided all the drama herself. When I got up she was hanging around closer than usual until I noticed she was totally messed up behind with poo.
Yes, the glamour of long haired kitties.
I took her to the sink for a back half bath. It has been quite a while since she has needed one. She was a lot smaller then! She made lots of noise.
The sink I used was right next door to the closet where Anna was sleeping the night. She must have wondered about the carrying on since after it was over she was very angry about being touched.
Poor Davout was so worried. He kept coming up to the bathroom to see what was happening. He doesn’t like Rhea to be upset, even if there’s nothing he can do about it.
So in the end we had some extra trash and a half-damp cat with a big job of drying off to do.
Anna’s issues had cleared up by later in the day and she was happy to play like normal.
Right after this she nipped at me. She is getting better at understanding the ‘ouch’ signal if she bites a little too hard. She stops and licks the finger. At one point she started licking and decided not to stop. She kept at it for what must have been minutes on the same two fingers.
I wonder what Rhea will think about a bottom trim? I wonder if I can do it with my shaver???
