lol! welcome to the world of cats!
having had only dogs before, i thought cats needed to be bathed too. the first time i tried the little bugger did a scene from the exorcist, swivelled his head 180 degrees and nailed me right in the meat between my thumb and first finger. the second time i tried ( i admit...i'm slo to clue in sometimes!
) i held the neck and backside so he let fly with all he had left.....the cat missed his bath but i had a shower to get the cat pee off me!
he was put to sleep ten years later due to illness and as far as I knew, never having gone near water again!
