She was fine, she just licked her paws for an hour afterwards, lol! We were like 10 and 7, we should have known better, but... boys will be boys.


Reminds me of a song I used to listen to when I was a kid. XD (And yesterday lol) I'm glad that she was alright though. :)

I just went to get my allergies tested yesterday and I have a minor cat allergy. Minor one tell you and she started blowing things WAY out of proportion. She told me that I should brush my indoor cat outside and give her baths. I told her first of all my cat is strictly indoors because I don't want her going out and accidentally getting hit by a car or something and she doesn't need to go out like a dog. Second of all, she would completely tear me and any of us to pieces if we were to bathe her. Now I realize that sometimes cats need to have baths for certain reasons, but just to bathe a cat just to bathe a cat is a tad bit ridiculous to me. Especially when I'm not even all that allergic to her. :rolleyes:
You can bathe a cat, but you gotta know what you're in for and act accordingly.

Only once when I had a cat that hated car rides.
It was so bad the cat crapped all over in the carrier and slid around in it the rest of the drive.
I almost puked in the car it was so bad.
Cat wasn't happy about the bath and neither was I.

Why do you ask?


I almost thought that might possibly really be your arm and then I saw the words in the background lol

You are probably not allergic to your cat. You are allergic to cat dander. Brush your cat regularly, use cat bath wipes from the pet store and vacuum, vacuum, vacuum, floors, furniture, beds. Especially your bed. Change sheets more frequently.

I did once when my cat got sprayed by a skunk. My grandmother advised me that the best way to get rid of the smell was to give him a bath in tomato juice. It was a really scrappy big tomcat. I duck tapped the cuffs my leather gloves to the cuffs of my jacket, put on my welding mask so he couldn't claw my eyeballs out, shoved him into a washing machine tub out in the garage, dumped tomato juice all over him and scrubbed him down from head to tail with a brush.

Of course he vigorously fought against this treatment, especially when I was scrubbing his ears and nether regions. He was so pissed-off and mad that he sounded like some demon in a sci-fi horror movie or something.

But it worked. Grandma was right. That bath in tomato juice got rid of the skunk spray smell and he was allowed back into our home again.
