I am going crazy. Lemmy HATES bath time. He scratches and claws the whole time. I can never get him clean in one try. Any suggestions for a necessary evil?? Lol
When I try to bathe my cats in the sink, they go wild and try to climb the curtain. However, when I put them in the bathtub...they're fine.I am going crazy. Lemmy HATES bath time. He scratches and claws the whole time. I can never get him clean in one try. Any suggestions for a necessary evil?? Lol
Start with the nail trim, sounds like your baby has some daggers. Cats are twice as easy to handle without them being able to shred skin.I tried to bathe him tonight and ended up with many lacerations and him jumping out.
I might try the foamy things!Next I tried putting a piece of that exorcise foam floor cover in the tub (those squares of foam the people put in their exorcise rooms, they lock together like puzzle pieces, any way it looks like some sort of rubber foamy stuff about 1 inch thick)
I have also tried the sink and end of with A sphynx window decoration hanging from the curtain, I now use the bath tub and they do ok!It sounds like everyone likes the bathtub over the sink, however I don't have an actual bathtub, just a stand alone shower. So the sink is where it all happens. I tried to bathe him tonight and ended up with many lacerations and him jumping out. I try to talk to him while I am doing it, but it does not seem to matter. He just freaks.
OMG! , Pete!! Get better soon! Did he have to get a tetanus shot, too? ouch...well, we just got back from the hospital. they put pete on an IV antibiotic drip. hopefully it will get better tomorrow. if not, the doc said we have to go back to the hospital and they have to like cut his finger open a little bit to clean it!!
