I have door on wy shower and a removeable shower head. I just entice my cat w/ some catnip, shut the door, and start spraying! He'll dry on his own

"Hunker Down Harriet" is now a catchphrase in my office for when the sh!t hits the fan.

You wash your cat? I know you explain why in the comic, but, seriously, why?

OMG. rofl...
for some reason the funniest part for me was the leg in the 2nd panel... looked a bit like a dashing dance. I couldn't stop laughing.

I would put my cat on my shoulder and get in the shower. She was fine as long as I was holding her

Double team your cat?

Assuming your cat is larger than the average turd, here is the truly easiest way to give it a bath!

Clean the toilet bowl...
Squirt cat shampoo into the toilet bowl...
Drop cat into toilet bowl and slam the lid, use one foot to hold the lid down while the other gets as close to the door as possible.
The cat's struggles will cause the soap to get rubbed in very well.
Flush twice...edge towards the door and run like hell as soon as you remove your foot from the lid.

Bahaha! Completely hilarious.
My dog has a routine where he rolls around on all the furniture after a good bathing.

I completely identify with this comic. Not only am I bald and have a goatee, but this describes my cat cleaning experiences perfectly. I could not stop laughing.

And that is why we pay $40 (tip included) to have the cat professionally groomed. Penny, you are a goddess of petcare.

The only thing missing is the part where the cat climbs the shower curtain and launches herself kamikaze-style at the nearest luckless human.

December 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

Your wife is called Harriet? Hmmmm...
Also, panel three is awesomeness.

Get a small cage. Insert cat and lock cage. Put cage in bathtub, dump loads of soap, and spray away! The cat's jumping and freaking out motion will lather the soap and provide scrubbing motion. Clean cat!

For those that don't know, cats have always cleaned themselves by licking, since the dawn of time. There is no need to wash a cat.

Washing a cat can actually be harmful to it's physical health, in addition to it's mental health.

March 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAnssi Ramela addition to Scott's health.

I just finished laughing after 5 minutes!

I once had to provide a cat with oral medication through a plastic squirty syringe kind of thing. After much scratches and cat escapes and chewed up syringe, I found the perfect system. Grab cat gently by nape of neck. Roll cat up in towel, with head protruding. Insert package butt first into appropriate sized dustbin. Cat is now immobilized and ready for medicine!

Do people actually give their cats baths? Cats clean themselves, and human concerns about "cat spit" aren't really relevant. There is literally no reason to bathe your cat, unless he got sprayed by a skunk, or something equally unlikely. Cats are not dogs.
