Toesday Daggers

Now the pikku prinssi is destined for great things, like cat shows. Rather him than me. And because of this he has to get used to being clean  (by human standards that is) and he will 'need' to - sorry if this shocks - have baths. Äiti decided to give him his first baptism. It was suggested she do this on catiocam so Loyal Viewers could at least ring for the ambulance.
But no, young Sampo allowed himself this indignity. He was fine in the sink but didn't like the running water much. At that point Äiti got more soaked than he did and has nice claw marks in her shoulder. Good lad! This bath was just with water: to shampoo Sampo is a later task (and that is not something which is easy for our Finnish readers to say, hehehehe). 
Thankfully there were no photos of his saturated state, just after a rubbing with a towel. He is not so happy now.
And I do not wish to hang around much.
Poor little squab is in shock.
Here he is gnawing on the compulsory treat, offered post-trauma.
And here are his toes....
...and the daggers.
Drop by tomorrow please for a special post. No shampoo involved.

As a physicist Aiti, you should of have known better.
Cats + baths = explosive reaction.

That is one of the reasons I'm glad I never did the show thing - I hate water with a passion! I freak out if my human is holding me and even walks within a couple feet of a sink!

Apparently Aiti was still able to post. We do hope she heals up well. As for Sampo, we've never seen him looking so "out of sorts"! MOL!

Pee Ess - wonderful to see several of you on the catio this morning! (Mommy was running around all weekend and missed catching you.)

Ooooh, Sampo! That last picture is soooooo tantalizing. The Human is feeling all grabby-hands.

Oh, dear, we don't like the thought of a bath at all. To our human's knowledge, we've never been bathed (unless when first rescued), and that's the way we'd like to keep it! Good for Sampo for putting a few claw marks into Aiti!

Aww, poor little wet kitty! Well, if he wants to be a star, he's gotta put up with a few indignities...

Well, apparently humans' standards of cleanliness are crazypants. Bah.

AS IF!!!

Sampo, next time you'll know what's happening so FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!

Let us quote Faraday's Law (uhm, no, not THAT Faraday - the Tonkinese of the same name in our home)...

If F = 1/2mv^2 then
F-cat + H2O = 1/2wetmass(holyCAThemovesFAST!)^2

or in Faraday's words: "Don't EVEN think you'll get out of this unscathed, Mommy!!"
