Wordful Wednesday - Cat Bath

It's that time of week again and Angie is hosting Wordful Wednesday. So head on over and join in the fun!

Giving a cat a bath sucks. Giving a cat 3 baths REALLY sucks.
Squishy came home last week smelling absolutely horrid! Originally I thought he had lay down in an oil spot under a car, but one day I saw him go into my next door neighbors yard. I was leaving and it was really cold out and I didn't want him to stay out, so I went to go find him. Can you guess where I found him and what he was doing? As I walked into their driveway I recognized the smell, the smell that was emanating from my cat. I turn the corner and here sits a 10 gallon bucket filled to the brim with used motor oil and the cat is balancing on the edge of it, playing in it or trying to drink it!!! I never once said the poor thing was normal. But c'mon, what in the world was he doing?
Anyway, the first try and second trys totally failed. He got a bath but it only made him smell 10 times worse. After the second try, he smelled so bad that I had to lock him in the downstairs bathroom over night! All he wanted to do was sleep with me. Day three, I went on the internet and researched anything I could find. I came up with a Dawn dish soap, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixture and it worked like a charm. Thank goodness!


  1. Ewwwwwwwwwww! But thanks for sharing :) I have two cats and one is severely stupid! This is exactly why I will not let him out of the house. I’m too lazy to bathe him ;)

  2. Oh my!!!! I have had to bathe a cat before - it's NOT fun!!

  3. LOL the cat doesn't look too happy. Giving a cat is no fun.

  4. At least you found a solution! My cat won't let me give her a bath anymore...but she does tolerate a shower.

  5. Oh no. That's terrible. Shouldn't that oil be disposed of? Sheesh.

  6. I don't have to bathe my cats much now as they've grown a bit older and less sloppy than they were as kittens. They also play in water more these days... what's with cats playing in the dishwater as you're trying to wash dishes, or rolling around in the bathtub when it is still wet?! It helps keep them clean, so why not.
