One day the peepul of the house decided that the cat was dirty. As we all know, cats do not make a habit of getting dirty but when we do, we wash ourselves, so this was a ridiculous idea. However, the peepul were not to be discouraged and they proceeded to pick up the cat and take him in the bathroom where a tub had already been drawn. The cat attempted to scratch the female of the peepul who was holding him and leaning over the bath tub, however he was unable to get a good grip on her shoulder and was placed gently in water up to his armpits. The male of the peepul then held the cat in the warm, not so horrible feeling water while the female poured warm, not so horrible feeling water all over the pristine fur of the cat. The cat came to the conclusion that the water that was being poured on him really wasn't as awful as he had predicted it to be. The female put some odd smelling goo on the cat and began rubbing it all over his fur while the male held him in place. The worst part of all of this was that the male was holding the cat in place, not so much the warm water part. The cat growled some, but in the end decided that he wasn't going to get out of the situation, and he didn't totally hate it like he thought he would. Once he was all lathered up and smelled like fancy oatmeal soap, the female poured more water all over him to rinse the bubbles off. The people kept talking in nice voices to the cat telling him how good of a boy he was, and the cat enjoyed that. Finally the torment ended and the cat was free to go. The cat jumped out of the tub with great haste, but he was still trapped in the bathroom, because the peepul didn't want his wetness getting more wetness all over the carpets and furniture. WHY get the cat wet then??? Of course he is going to get all over those things. The female tried rubbing a towel on the cat, but the cat kept squirming out of the towel, but it did get some of the water off. Eventually, the cat was allowed out of the bathroom and where did he go...straight on to the peepul bed of course!
The moral of this story for peepul, don't wash the cat unless you want wet furniture, carpets, beds, selves etc.
The moral of this story for cats, being bathed really isn't thaaat bad, warm water is soothing, but I still don't think it's necessary.
Additionally, I just learned about the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and wanted to play along.
I'm a cat, I don't sit still well, thus the slightly blurry pics.
