A daily part of the treatment, the ointment on the cats to distribute. The ointment is applied almost stress free. Niki likes to be it was not recorded, but by joining forces we succeed in general to complete his treatment, especially as he indeed has only one point on the head.
Gizmo is problematic, as are affected by it three, now we have found a fourth body. It cost me so far a skirt, keep it firmly so that Andi was able to distribute the cream.
In addition, three times a week swimming is on the agenda.
First, we faced the problem that we have two bathrooms only a fixed shower head. Quite clearly, so that no cat can get wet, rinse down as much again. The idea to let water run in to make the cats get wet, soap and "go underground" was quickly rejected. Also in a bathing Wanner they lather and in the other bathroom in clear water rinses unthinkable. Which cat can be just once in the wet state peacefully 10m carry around? In the guest bathroom we have a short tube, but no tub abzuspühlen to the cats, wash basin is as unsuitable.
Then came the garden hose into the game. You may bathe the cats out there? Unsuitable for Niki, he may not get out, our two would run away as fast. Moreover, the impression it makes on the neighbors, who would run over. Onlookers, two-and four-legged kind were inevitable. So the garden hose scams. The solution was found. Through the door we went, but what else are sliding patio?
Since we had no motorcycle leather gear on hand, had a pair of jeans in my case, rich, Andy put on his swimming trunks, he wanted to keep the cats in the bathtub sitting. We started with Tinka, she seemed to us the most trouble. We were right. Make wet was still feasible, as soon as we came towards the head with the hose, she resisted. In the soap it has kept pretty quiet, the rinse down again but the same dilemma. Head is an absolute no go. Out of the tub and lift out to dry just happened quickly. I had left the towel on the toilet, because of short distances. Fortunately, she has had in the first minute to do everything with it. After that, then good, just balancing was on and jump off the bidet something difficult, with wet feet.
Next, we tried our luck with Niki. Would be the best again jumped out of the tub out when he was only on pads gespührte water. So join forces press firmly into the pan and the first time only water marsh. As soon as possible and distribute water with three hands, the shampoo. Again, he would cut down the most, trying with a claw durchboren to the tube. also a fight, dry - rinse down.
Gizmo, I had already locked up in a bed and breakfast, so I could get him easily. He had fortunately not hiding under the bed. who paid into the bath inside, the water does not share. The cat definitely has the most power of the three. Accordingly, he also fought most vigorously. At some point, Andi sat on top of him, Gizmo braced himself with extended claws against the bathtub wall, I then tried to take only still with the hose Andi around Gizmo. The bathing suit here was very useful. When foaming, he was back to relative peace and not with the rinse down. But the weight of this cat, with wet fur. By the two cats in front of him and the preceding water fight was the towel rather wet, but I wanted to dry him, so he went out on wets the matter out.
Fortunately, we survived the operation without injuries. Only this gizmo has me scratching missed yesterday when he was in his kennel. With imported treats, we have the three quickly brought back to purring. How did they look like small hedgehogs. Niki was fastest with his thin skin dry again, Tinka has a very little wet undercoat and Gizmo can we cuddle and pat dry. Even three hours after the bath the skin in the two is slightly damp. We currently have around 30 degrees in the house, because we have identified the air to speed up the drying process by heat. Also must be a yes, by cold air currents provoked cold not be the cats. Let out probably would have been easiest, but not in the midday heat. Today you can also rediscover the cats in them.
A positive side effect, with Gizmo, we had recently felt he had grown excessively. With adjacent skin he but looked really slim. In addition, the skin felt softer and smells very little bit better than road dust in the likes rolled.
