Re: rain....washing the cat

I'm glad that (faining) never happened to me.  I used to wash Spot (also a
white angora) in the tub.  He'd put up with it until he decided enough was
enough.  He tried climbing over my shoulder and then actually bit the top of
my head.  But I always managed to hang on to him.  I eventually switched to
the kitchen sink because it is more confined and I have more control.
Once, I gave Mick a bath, let him outside to dry, and then bathed Jack.
When I let him out I didn't see Mick - who should have been out in the sun.
I saw the peonies russling and checked, and there he was, completely dry!
When I reached to feel his coat, he took off.  I swear this had to be Mick's
dad or sibling. All black with a small Tidy Cat marking, which is pretty
common.  But Mick has a skeletal structure and face shape that is quite
unique and this cat had it too.  They were identical.
