Cleanup Day

Need Cleaning

Tomorrow morning Davout is going in for a teeth cleaning at the vets.  At least the snaggle tooth is clean at the tip.  I hope he isn’t as scared as he usually is there.

Blowout Rhea

Rhea had a poo mess on her when I got back from work and had to have a back half bath in the sink.  She’s getting resigned to it I think, though she did complain.

Cutie Boy

Not sure what mister wide eyes think of it all.

    Oh dear! The half poo bath! My kitty boys missed their last grooming appointment because of a medical conflict on my part, and, while smoke Persians look stunningly beautiful when their fur grows out, your post today reminds me me of why I started taking them in every other month for a haircut and that all important “hygienic trim”!

    Poor Rhea! She has my sympathy, but those trapped “poo balls” truly distract from your kitty’s beauty and cause distress to the cat.

    Dougy sometimes licked them into a hair-wrapped mess that could only be manually manipulated under water till they dissolved and were free of the fur. UGH! Hope Rhea’s was a bit less tenacious!

      Nah, that’s pretty much what she needed. She has long feathery hairs on her that sometimes pull the stuff right back against her and get clotted in. So I pretty much need to dissolve most of them and rinse and rinse to get it clean enough that she can clean and dry the rest herself.

        My two resist water. Is a Rhea a good girl when you have to half-bathe her? (Oddly, they seem to tolerate the groomer’s bathing them, perhaps because of better arrangements where they are showered but not immersed in warm water.)

        She’s reasonably good. She’s grabby with a bit of claw and complains, but the sink isn’t full and she’s bigger than it is so fear of drowning isn’t there.
