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!
