Thor Likes the Bathtub!


Imrlgoddess

1,306 views

When Little Hooman gave him the first bath she said he did great.  She gave him a sink bath and he hung around in the bathroom while Princess had her royal scrubbing. She said he was fascinated. He likes to be where we are all the time so in the bath with me he came! Don't worry there's no NSFW content, just toes and kitty. He almost slipped in a couple times, that was hilarious.

He's so active now! The jingly balls have no chance, neither do toes or fingers. He has this awesome little trill/meow that he uses when he's in full swing. He's just an adorable fat ball of black poof.

I can't believe your Little Hooman was able to bathe him without picking up battle scars! We tried to bathe our first FurBoss, Angel. Once. Do you know cats have extensible legs, just like in the cartoons?  We got more water on the floor and walls than on her---and gladly paid a groomer's fee at a pet clinic for THEM to wash her.  Our current beasts like to keep us company in the bathroom, and Trixie (Junior Cat) will walk on the tub edge, but won't jump in (thank goodness).

Is he going to grow into those paws? In our old house, I had one of those glass enclosed showers. L & L would sit on the tub ledge and watch me. Now, they they will do goofy things like peek over the top of the shower curtain rail or jump on the ledge and watch. I've occasionally bathed them and they don't like it but don't fight too much. As soon as I have the $$, I'll be taking them to the pros.

Oddly enough, all three are good in the tub. We've only had one that was a terror, a little sweet tuxedo kitty years ago. The old cats tolerate it & he seems to be OK with water in general.

Be still my beating heart. He's definitely gotten cuter! :kitty:

And I love when cats talk to us. I don't doubt for a second that they can understand Human-speak more than we give them credit for. I recently read an article about a study that someone (sorry, can't remember who conducted it) did about dogs understanding our words, too.

My duo know when I'm talking to them. I think they understand a lot too...however, cats being cats, their usual response is "yeah, yeah, whatever" and keep doing whatever it is they are doing. They only "obey" when they feel like it.

He was hanging out on my shoulder a little while ago & I whispered, "I love you" to him.... He immediately turned & rubbed his face under my chin & began to purr. They understand. Of that, I have no doubt.

Oh...my two understand that too! Leia will come behind me and head-butt me. I'll reach back to give her a scratch and tell her "I love you too baby girl" and she will nuzzle my hand. Luke is a little less subtle. I'll give him a skritch after he whines in my face, tell him "I love you handsome boy" and he will end up all in my face meowing and grabbing at my hand for more skritches. They know when I tell them I love them, they know when I say no, they occasionally come when called. 

Then there's Leia's daily report of how awful Luke was while we were gone...and Luke's daily whine of how he got his butt kicked.

I'm making those sounds that some women produce upon seeing extreme cuteness.  Sadly, this has awakened the furry guardian from her nap on my abdomen.

Awwww.

Reminds me of some of the pictures my sister took of Marvel the Kitty when he first came into their lives.  I remember the first time I went down after they brought the Marvelman home, he was such a little ball of fur and energy.  I took a tail down for Marvel and it made my day seeing him running and jumping after that tail.

Oh...Mr. Xtian has been asking for Thor pics...he asks me how Thor is every day. He swears up and down he's not a cat person, but I think he's full of it. Especially when he's snuggling his "girlfriend" Leia.

I drop hints sometimes to my sister that I wanna see pictures of the Marvelman and his big sister Maggie.

Is his tail ever going to fill out? It's looking better!

My Headship likes to jump in the shower with me. It's all well and good 'til his face gets wet. Bathing him is a breeze, but loses his mind when I try to dry him with a towel.

      There is literally no reason to stop and reset during a cross country flight. It's just making the travel that much longer instead of going all at once.

      This! It’s not like the traveling itself would have taken days. They could have simply made their connection and would have been at the final destination a couple hours later. The way they organized it now probably means they had to get all their luggage, their cats and everything they brought hauled to whatever family they are visiting. And then in a couple of days they will have to pack up again, get to the airport, check their bags and cats again and go through security again. So they have two days of travel instead of one.

      It can make sense to split up a long journey into two days. We did that on the way back to Germany from our vacation in New Zealand. It’s two eleven hour flights back to back. We pulled through on the way there (which worked surprisingly well!), but on the way back the cheapest flight was a connection with an overnight stay at Seoul. So we did that. Arrived in the evening, took a taxi to a close and cheap-but-decent airport hotel, got a good night’s sleep and then got on the next 11 hour flight the next morning.

      But yeah, for two 3-4 hour flights? Makes no sense at all!

      How old are Shalom and Justin’s kids?  I can’t imagine leaving my kids when their other parent is dying.  The poor daughter who was down with him.  It just doesn’t seem like they are thinking about the kids, especially if the kids are too young to understand.  I don’t image Mike and Debi being support for the kids emotionally during this.  I’m sure Shalom is torn and she was raised essentially being taught husband is above all.  Someone in those kids lives are hopefully there to hold them.

      I just think of a first grade class I subbed for this year with Aiden, Kayden, Grayden, and Zayden.

      was Braden absent?

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.
