The first, and possibly only, rule when it comes to bathing cats:
Never let them get traction.
So, I gave Boo a bath. He was very good until about halfway through the shampoo... but it didn't really matter because soapy, wet kitty paws on wet tub is not so good for a quick escape. ;)
I gave him a couple Pounce and he forgave me for 2 seconds. Now he's busy re-bathing himself his way. (Which is prolly how he gets stinky any way... kitty breath!) At any rate... chalk this one of up for shampoo and opposable thumbs!
Of course, he may try to kill me in my sleep now.
