I give Jake a bath every once in a while. And he does act like he feels extra good
after. Plus the kneading is something he does when he is feeling really good. Just
not limited to after he had a bath. Sometimes it just after I've had a bath, and
sometimes I think its just because.

Sorry, bathing our cats is not something we'd do on purpose... :) All kittens
get a bath their first day here, just to be sure there are no fleas introduced
into the house. That, and sometimes when they get too dirty or they decided
to jump into the toilet bowl while it's being used... Adult cats clean
themselves quite nicely.

I wish. I'd *love* to give ours a bath but Hobo would go into
tornado-mode and I'd lose an arm or two. Speckles is smaller and
easier to handle but not one to sit still for such indignities.
