Cat tub

Yeah, I did it. Now, I'm sitting here wondering where my life took a turn...

I used to be hip. I used to be single girl, making bucco dough. I used to wear awesome clothes, and go out with the urban hipsters. (What...I did!)

Yeah, so what was on tap tonight?

I gave Mr. Smokey a tub. If I had a third arm, I would have taken actual pictures of him in the sink. Of course, I couldn't, because I was wearing cooking mitts and talking soothingly at him so he wouldn't take my arm off.
Look at his poor, sad, floppy wet tail:(

I don't just torture him for fun...really, I don't. He's been smelling, badly smelling. SO...I googled cat tubs, read up on it, and went about de-stinking Mr. Smokes.

As I was chasing Mr. Wet Cat around trying to take a picture of him to prove to you that "yes" you can give a cat a bath and live to tell, I looked up and Lady GaGa was on my TV.
Now, don't get me wrong...I LOVE me some GaGa...but what the heck?!? This just does not look comfortable:/ (Said the girl wearing her 2 year old Lulu Lemon running pants.)
I mean...can you see these shoes?

My ankles hurt just looking at them...and while we are on the subject of her lower half...

Where are her pants? I believe this is a reoccurring nightmare of mine...being on TV, and forgetting to wear pants...
Anyways...Smokey is fine...and he's pretty much been doing this since he got out of the sink.

Well...that, and giving me dirty "Don't you know this is how cats do tubs?" looks:/

Where'd it all go wrong???


  1. When I bought my cat, the breeder told me to give her a bath once a week. I gave her ONE and it was so traumatic that the cat and I agreed that if she did a really thorough job of cleaning herself we would NEVER attempt that again. Ten years in and so far, so good.

    Love the new look, btw.

  2. It's called growing up and changing priorities. I remember hanging out in the clubs until closing and watching the 40+ year olds who were closing the clubs too. I always thought it was sad that they were still doing it. It was fun, but I wouldn't want to be doing it now.

  3. I'd love to use the cooking mitts trick the next time I have to trim claws, if only I could manage it. I'm not nearly brave enough to attempt a bath, defensive kitchen wear clad or not.

  4. I don't get the GaGa thing, I really don't. All I know is her shock value has gone way down. She's everywhere. I'm expecting Disney channel next.
