I have a Maine Coon cat and he's a BIG boy! He is an indoor cat so he rarely gets dirty but once every year he and I get a good soaking. Normally he's a very cuddly kind of guy and he knows I love him - but the second he gets near the sink he knows absolutely, to the depth of his little cat soul, that I'm gonna drown him. Go figure. I get soaked, the window gets soaked, the floor gets soaked.....well, you get the idea. The claws are not fun either.
