Bathing?

Do you bathe yourself by tongue or does your human bathe you in addition? I've been getting baths and I handle them fairly well so far. I know it makes Mom happy because as a kitten I get into a lot of yucky messes. I'd swear I posted this topic a day or so ago but maybe I forgot to hit submit, I don't see it up.

    I bathe myself, but my mommy feels the need to bathe me about once a month in the dreaded tub! I don't really like getting baths, I don't mind the whole getting clean part, it's just the water that scares me.

    I bathe myself and provide my family with lots of laughs when I try to get to those hard to reach places, especially my chest and my hind legs - they say it looks like I'm doing yoga! I'm an indoor cat but my mommy does take me to the groomers once a year to make me even more handsome!

    Ooops....I forgot to mention that my mommy also loves to use this mitten with nubby things on it to help groom me - I looooove the way that feels and I have fun attacking the thumb part just when she leasts expects it - hee hee

    Merlin that sounds cute, I usually stand up on my hind legs to lick my harder to reach places. My human's joke that I go into my little bear stance. My Mom will have to check out those grooming glove thingies. They sound fun.

    I bath myself, but since I\'m on the plump side I have a hard time reaching everywhere. So, mommy gives me baths, I\'m not really fond of them, but if Dad stays in the room with us I don\'t get quite so nervous! Mommy calls it tag team bathing. hehehe I always feel better after a bath but I\'ll NEVER admit it to mommy!

    As the Cary Grant of **** cats I only bathe myself--several times a day if necessary--to maintain my blinding glow. My parents would never be foolish enough to attempt to bathe me. That would mean certain death--for them. I have worked for years to perfect my cleaning rituals, and I\'ll be shaved bald before a human attempts to gild my lily with a bath. What am I saying?!?! Put that razor away, I was only kidding. Instead of being shaved bald, how \'bout I just poop on your pillow?

    Oh go stuff it in a sack sis! You're just jealous because you don't have the power to blind a Thompson's Gazelle from 50 paces with your fur.

    Haha you guys are funny. I had only one bath in my life, and mommy said that she would never do it again (it was horrible...) I clean myself and I smell good anyway, so everything\'s good.

    I loooooooooove getting baths from my Mommy! I love water. I always jump in tubs full of water, even if they aren\'t for me. I also lay in the tub when there is no water.

    ATTENTION! We interrupt this thread for an important announcement! Brought to you by Felix. Through me. Meow there, fellow Catsters... We -- my buddy Jacques and myself -- are trying to help out our friend Sweetie. Sweetie is a delightfully charming cat who loves to play matchmaker...only she hasn't yet found a match for herself. So, to help Sweetie find the cat of her dreams, Jacques and I are hosting the first ever "Cat-lorette." If you're up for the challenge of winning Sweetie's heart, be one of the first 25 cats to sign up in the "Sweetie" thread under Catster crushes. All "rules" will be explained there. There, you'll also have the chance to meet Sweetie, and get a sense of what she's looking for in a crush. Good luck to all, and look forward to meeting you in Sweetie's thread! Meow, Felix
