Harry's bath time

I know I am supposed to blog about Harry's and Emma's cute pictures when they were young. But the weekend is just so non-conducive for anyone to be productive. Instead, both Harry and Emma got their showers in, which is great. Always keep your pets clean.

Getting Emma into the shower is always easy. That dog really loves water. Harry, on the other hand, is a very different story. Cat generally does not like water and there is a reason why. Their hair coat is literally waterproof and trying to give Harry a bath is let just say short of impossible. 

Not that Harry is a dirty cat. He is really good at washing himself on a daily basis. He is extremely clean. However, when the danders kick in, what needs to be done has to be done. Look at that handsome face!

Harry, minutes prior to his bath. Look at that majestic looking cat. We always say that he looks like a lion.

Harry: Hmmmmm.......... I have a feeling something bad is going to happen. These people have been extremely nice to me till now. (Tail tapping on the leather chair. Tap! Tap! Tap!)

Background human's voice
Human 1: Okay, he looks calm!
Human 2: Alright! I am going in. Wish me luck!
Human 1: Good Luck! Be careful!
Human 2: Here goes nothing........

Meowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! (Hair flying in the air, paws scratching, Harry crying for help and planning his escape!)

10 minutes later...................

Harry: I hate you people. Look what you have done. Who in their right mind give a cat a bath in the middle of dead winter.

Harry: This is so uncalled for. What have I done to you lately? I was looking like a majestic lion when I was dry. Now I look like a sick tiger. *Meow* I'll never forgive you for making me to take a bath.

Background voice
Human 1: It is alright, Harry! I am going to towel you dry now. Oh, my good Harry! What a good boy he is! *Cooing*

Harry: Hmmm.........this doesn't feel that bad after all. My skin does feel good and I smell like a baby. Is that a heartbeat? Is that my mama's heartbeat? That feels good. *Snuggle time*

Harry all dry after his shower. Now he smells like sugar and spice and everything nice.

Harry: Feels a lot better. Now, I can resume my goal of hatching a plan to take over the world. *Meow*

  2. Ling: He never look too good when he is wet. The poor cat. He needs the bath real bad. Have been making all of us itchy with his dander
