Every time I read about that little guy,I have to laugh,OMG what a little troublemaker he is and now he has to have a bath...oh no
Vinnie has a lot of fluff around his privates,I just wait until it driesand the brush it out,I find it gets messier if you try a wet cloth.
I have never in my life with cats,had a cat that chews wires,Bunduk must be really special

I tried wet tissue but then I just ended up with tissue bits in the fluff so then I tried a wet towel (sorry mom) but still didnt work....but he ran away from me and into the bathub muahahahahah.........except now I have all these scratches ...

It definately would be easier to let it dry but then he might smear it somewhere and since he's mostly on the beds thats kinda gross


oh and i had no idea cats could have behavioural issues b4 bunduk, boy did i have a wakeup call

do u mean hair human hair scissors or pet grooming?

Thing is i did try to clip some of bunduks fur before when he was younger (always had diarhea) but it was so hard to cut . I have a pair of scissors meant for cutting human hair

Silly bundak, stay away from those cords .

I shave my cat Fred's butt every few months. I have a set of pet clippers and just carefully reduce the hair volumn around his but down to about where his belly meets his legs. You can't really even notice that the fur is missing but it sure makes for a cleaner butt area .

didnt know cats could have behavioral issues ? girl have you been lucky


We had gotten the siamiase mix a pretty close clip and when it grew where it was interfering we would take a very sharp hair scissors and cut it back

IT really wasnt that hard and it relly didnt look that different at all
