Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

The week started out fantastic.  Let me tell you my furriends, don't ever let that fool you into thinking the week will stay that way.  Just remember you heard it from me.

Mom and dad cleaned out the workshop...and hanging from the ceiling was dried nip!  Yes, they just let me play in it and roll in it!  Wow!!!!  I'm thinking this is the best place on earth and me, Ginger, gets to live here.

But then, mom looks at my back...which my furriends, looks absolutely fine.  This photograph proves it.

But NO!  Mom says I'm a mess from flea allergies and I've got itchy spots and some scabs on my back.  And then she said the "B" word.

B.A.T.H.

Before I could even get a squeak out, I was swooped up and stuffed into the bathtub where mom had hypoallergenic soap ready for me.  I didn't even see it coming.  How unfair is that?

Mom said I was being a big baby because I didn't need a full body bath, just my back.  How's that for sympathy?  I thought she loved me.

Well, she did wrap me in a towel and say sweet things in my ear.  I guess I can forgive her....maybe.

Oh nos, a BATH???? I do hate it! I would rather be stuffed in a PTU and go to the vet.

Boom Nisanart said...

Wow ! ... Lots of nip, I think that's why she got you easily to the bath. She is pretty smart !

Kea said...

A bath? Yikes! We've never had one and hope we never do! Does your mom use Advantage or Revolution? That's a bit easier than a bath!

We hope you get to roll in the nip again, to make up for the offense and indignity of being bathed!

Nip on the ceiling?? We're on our way!!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Well the NIP is AWESOME ~ but the bath ... shud be BANNED! Yoo got our sympathy.

Brian said...

Oh no, they didn't do that to you! I think you better pay closer attention to the swoopers!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Sorry about the water episode, that is not fun but a romp in the nip looks like paradise!

Simba said...

Such indignity, but I hope the wash helps out your allergies.

The Monkeys said...

Wow, you're a very forgiving girl, Ginger! We would hate a bath!

The Island Cats said...

She took you away from the nip?? She could have at least waited until you were all nipped out and didn't care if you got a bath or not!

Forever Foster said...

Oh Ginger! That must have sucked big time. The nip looks good though!

P.S. My mum was looking through her recipe book and found one for Ginger Kisses. That's what I wanted her to make! ;)

Oh Ginger, NO! Give her the back of disrespect.

Mishkat said...

We do not think baths are a good idea AT ALL! We do hope it makes the itchiness better, though.

P.S. Thanks so much for your purrs for Blackie - we really appreciate them!

Cat said...

Some treats might help that forgiveness along!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Forgiveness is such a sweet feeling!

Furkidsmom said...

Oh no, a BATH???? We hope you were still pumped up on that 'nip and that it didn't really bother you that much.

Baths are not fun.....but if it helps your skin, you gotta do it.

The Whiskeratti said...

Ooohhhh we're getting itchy just thinking about it!

Eric and Flynn said...

The nip looked great. Pity your day went downhill from there.

Tatyanna (and Dorian too) said...

Ooooh that 'nip looks wonderful! But the "B" word? Oh no! My human mom says you look very adorable with your wet fur, poor baby! I'm just glad for you that it's all over and you are itchy, allergy free! **Purrrs**

Caren Gittleman said...

great blog you have! I am now following you, nice to meet you!

I noticed that you wrote that your cats have skin allergies, how did they treat them?

We think my Cody does too

Did you get any nip after for consolation at least? I sure feel for you. I have allergies too and I've been kinda itchy lately...heard my mom say the Bath word too.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Oh Ginger, the horror!! To be taken from the nirvana in the midst of cat nip - & made to endure the B word!!

You look like you fared pretty well, tho - we hope it didn't take too long to dry out your furs!! Do you want to come over & use our magic brush to brush them out??? You'll just have to move Jay's big butt (like I had to last week!!)

Have a great day!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

ps. Cory, we went over to see Whitey & we agree - he is a very handsome mancat!! You two are almost like yin & yang!!

Au and Target said...

A BATH? How cruel is that! I'd demand nip by the truckload and some treats as compensation.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh that is awful about the bath! We know that one is in Kirzon's future at our house - mom just hasn't done it yet. But at least you got a little bit of nip rolling time - that is fun at least!

Ayla and Iza, said...

O.M.C! You got to plunge around inna pile of dried fresh nip? We are stunned. The Big Thing hands that out like treats...

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Wow...that's quite a stash of nip you got saved up there! And FAD...is sad, and itchy. On a kitty that is allergic to flea bites, all it takes is one bite and you got scabs and itchies. Advantage works great as it kills the fleas before they even bite, but Revolution works differently, the flea has to bite first and well, in allergic kitties, you still get the rashes.
