      Hi again, Pamela

      Yes, some cats do tolerate water as my Specks did. She used to go outside in the yard when it was raining and it didn't bother her one bit. She was the only cat I ever had that was like that!

      Grabbing your cat by the scruff of the neck is the proper way to do anything that is frightening or threatening to a cat. When kittens, the mother cat will carry them by the scruff of the neck when they move them. They instinctively know to completely freeze and go limp to prevent injury or causing their mothers to drop them. Nature's way to protect them. It sure works.

      And of course, the growling your cat is making is just showing she is not a happy camper! LOL

      Talking about Specks just loved running to the sidewalk, flopping on her side and rolling on the concrete. She picked up grass, dirt, leaves, sticks, you name it! It didn't bother her one bit. When she finished she looked like half cat and half Big-Foot. She was hideous. I could have bathed her, but since she didn't mind the vacuum cleaner, I just vacuumed her fur on her windowsill! LOL

      Thanks for sharing a little about your cat!

      My kitty tolerates a bath from me. She is getting a little heavier, so it's not quite as easy as it used to be, but what I do is I hold her by the scruff of the neck in my left hand and with the right hand I hold the shower utensil-thing to spray her down. (She makes some out of this world noises in her throat, but she doesn't scratch me or try to leave.

      I only bath her if she's been rolling around in the dirt outside. When she's doing her rolling around, I tell her, "You're going to have a bath now." When she comes in the house, she knows already what's next.

      Thank you Carolyn2008! I think there is nothing sadder looking than a soaking wet cat. One of my cats didn't mind water. She would go outside in our yard when it was pouring down rain and it didn't bother her one bit! Cats are really funny creatures!! Glad you enjoyed the pictures and if you haven't seen my similar post on cats sleeping, you may want to check it out! Thanks for commenting and God Bless you!

      Great photo article! They look so pitiful wet. I like the "You'll never take me alive" photo.

      Hello Reminder and Wealthmadehealthy! I am glad you both got a good laugh out of these pictures. I can't even imagine trying to give a cat a bath...braver souls than me. I wonder what shape the people were in doing this. I am sure their arms, hands, etc. had some painful reminders of their folly! Anyway, glad you liked them. My two favorites are the first picture and the "Not a Happy Camper! picture. Take care now and God Bless!

      I agree with The Reminder, that cat looks like it would pull the plumbing out if it could. LOL Great pics, loads of laughs...We could all use a good laugh on a daily basis. This does the trick! Thanks
