Kitty Friendship

These are two of my cats, Faith and Thomas. They had just gotten baths earlier in the day (hence the hair dryer and the rag towel). They, like most cats, don't enjoy bath time -- at all. A kind of strange thing they do -- if we bathe one of them and not the other -- is hiss at each other as if they're strangers. Since they normally get along so well, it totally surprised us the first time they did it.

This is such a sweet picture because it shows that after such a traumatic and stressful day for them (and me) they decided to cuddle up with each other. Thomas is holding Faith's paw (he likes to hold our hands too) and you just know it's making him feel better so he can nap. Everything is better with a friend.

I'm really behind on reading blogs so I just saw this..too cute. But I can't imagine attempting to give my cats a bath so I'm very impressed that you can not only give them a bath but then blow dry them!

That is too sweet how Thomas likes to hold hands or paws. :D

Angie - Thomas has longer hair and has to have a bath every now and then. We only do it once or twice a year. It is a . . . production though. lol I have a blow dryer that has really low settings with even a cool function. I don't want to overheat them - but I also don't want them to get sick. Both had upper respiratory infections when they were kittens and can get sick again more easily.
