Blast, allow me to humbly apologize for laughing. Damn.

The licking of another is usually a sign of submissiveness among social cats. His way of saying sorry.

Or he's looking for the tasty bits.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.

After reading your blog... I still think my original advice is sound... or the "accident" advice.

My pup would probably arrange the excecution if one of our cats tried that... it is bad enough if they break her rules by attempting to come into a room I am sleeping in grin

Thanks for letting me use the images, pics always go over better in class with a good story smile

WOW! I've been bitten by a lot of cats, but never got anything like that.

When you try to drown a cat like that, the cat does what cats do. Don't blame the cat for acting like a cat. Just like survival in other situations, results are due to judgment, good or bad.

The only time I saw a real need to bathe a cat was when the family cat accidentally jumped into a large coffee can of turpentine. And yes, we did have quite an argument about the bath. I'd say it came out about 50-50. BTW, you CAN brush iodine on your arms with a new, freshly-washed 1" paintbrush, I discovered.

I don't know why she did it, but my daughter used to give her cat (the same one that did a number on my wifes arm during a bathing episode) a bath all the time. It didn't like it, made a lot of noise about it, but never ever even scratched her...

For something like that, I like to stick on my Sawyer Extractor to help it bleed more, hoping to clean it out. Probably only marginally effective though.
