    This is my first summer with Johnny and I have noticed that since it has gotten warmer, he is getting dirtier faster after a bath (I know.....not correct english :Dizzy:). I had Walter during the summer last year and Johnny during the winter this year so I havent seen a change until now. Is this normal? I feel like such a bad mom since he is filthy 2 days after his bath. :ThumbsDown::ThumbsDown:

      Yea, I've noticed I've had to scrub Snuffies under arms and leg creases a lot more and she gets really oily where her ears run into her head,,weird but I love her even when she's grubby. lol

      Oh yes, Pedda always get dirty more quickly in the summer. Her skin is a bit on the dry side though so she can go for a week between baths and not need wiping in between.

      Thanks guys :ThumbsUp: I couldnt figure out what was going on with him so I starting thinking it was because of the weather change.

      My boys always seemed to have grubby little pits and stomach flub flaps. But I loved them anyway.

        I was lucky my boys lived into old age, but they did lose their firm tummies. But how come the flub flap I have gotten with age couldn't be as cute as theirs? No fair!

        Flub flap!! Love it!

        Gable gets really dirty pits, belly and neck. He can be such a dirty greasy cat. I always tell him he looks like a poor homeless street Sphynx. Amaryllis ears barely get dirty and she just gets a bit of grease on her neck She is a clean dainty girl.
