Apparently 25% of cat owners blow dry their cats hair after a bath.
This amazes me. If 25% of people who have cats blow dry their cat after a bath, what is the percentage of people who bath their cats?
I’ve never bathed any of my cats. If I did that, what would they do all day? Surely, one of the key functions of a domestic cat is self grooming? I can’t imagine they’d like it very much anyway. Apart, possibly, from Mr Stripey Pants, who likes to sit under a dripping tap to drink. But even he would draw the line, I’m sure, at submersion and suds?
Or do I just have a seriously negligent attitude to my cats’ personal hygiene?
I still remember a line from an e.mail entitled Things We Learn In Childhood:
It’s not possible to baptise a cat.
