Default Wow! Where did everyone go?

It used to be so busy here. I guess all the cats have their own FaceBook pages now. I wouldn't know, I'm not on any of that Social Media crap. Yes I'm old.

Smokey still loves her baths BTW; she cries until she gets her baf. I'm lucky if I get away with two 'baths' a day. We have developed quite a ritual around this activity, she looks at the water in the bath bucket when I bring it and rubs her chops along the rim of the bucket. She loves getting her body, tail and face washed, but the toes and belly are off limits. This is somewhat odd, as she loves showing her belly for a rub. Although yesterday I was given the special privilege of washing the belly. You can still wash the Bum, but you have to ask first now. ;-)

They do like to change things up, don't they? They get us used to a
routine, and then they change something. I'm glad she likes her bath.

Yes, I'm still here. I mostly don't do Facebook myself, so I fully
understand.

I'm still here, too. Tried Facebook and didn't like it.

It's nice to hear Smokey likes her baths. I don't know what Buffy would
do if I tried to bathe her but I can't imagine a good outcome. She
knows how to use her claws when she's not happy!

Hi,

It's only a sponge bath, but I'm still surprised she is so enamored with it.. I guess she thinks the old, never to be used again tea towel is just a large tongue. ;-) She equates it with a good brushing.

I'm tempted to put her water in a shallow pan to see if she is crazy enough to step in the water, but I don't think so.

That sounds like a good decision. I wish I could do that with my cats,
but they won't let me hold them, and I can only brush Pickles if she is
in my lap and doesn't realize I'm using a brush instead of my hand to
stroke her. I usually get in half a dozen brushes or so before she
realizes, and then she's gone.

Smokey prefers her bath on a mat. :-) She thinks it's a brush upgrade. She used to bite the brush long ago, when we first started brushing her. She pretty much lives on the 2nd floor now, as the stairs bother her arthritis, so the brushings are few and far between now.

Hi Auric,

I don't believe we've chatted before. This was quite a busy little group at one time, but I have not been around in a while.

I frequently talk to myself, but I'm the crazy cat guy. :-) Fortunately, I haven't started answering myself yet. Although my coworkers might dispute that. LOL.

Good to 'meet' you.

I've never met or read a post by Dr. Hellman, either. I've been reading
and posting here for many years. Who are your cats?
