So we decided to give Gambit a bath this past weekend. We're both allergic to cats, so it was just a good idea to give him one.
And we survived. No scratches. I think the key was that we did it in the bathtub. Filled it a few inches high with warm water and put him in. He did amazingly well. I'm sure he wasn't too thrilled about the whole thing, but it didn't go too bad. I did end up giving him a good rinse in the kitchen sink since there's a sprayer there.
So here are the pictures of a rather wet cat. Enjoy!
