Caturday: Wet-Tailed Adi

Hewwo. Um, I’m Adi, okay?

EverMom had to give me anudder baff.

Chickie: Tell her what you did!

I don’t wanna.

Chickie: I told about how I poked a hole in Mommy.

Um, okay. She wrapped me up in a towel after my baff, but I didn’t like it and I wiggled out and jumped down, and I askidentally poked two holes in her arm and dey blooded a little. And my tail was wet for a long time.

MamaJess came to visit and she wanted to take a picture of me with my fluffiest floof showing. She said, “Adi, look over here,” and I did.

I hope PapaJoe comes to visit me again. I like it here, but I miss him.

De udder morning, I was very brave and went and sat on de footstool at de bottom of EverMom’s bed. I turnded on my UdderCat Early Warning System, but the udder cats didn’t come in.

EverMom dot a widdle shavey fing dat buzzes, and she holds me in her lap and slowly cuts de matts outa my fur. I don’t like it much, but I like it when she stops and I can just snuggle on her lap.

Guess what? Sometimes, Tipper and Chickie forget to hiss at me. Hehehehe!

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      She’s mostly nice. She only hurts by “askident”. It’s usually just bad language.

    Only two holes? That’s pretty mild you know. I’ve only bathed a cat once in my life and I swore I’d never do it again. Don’t know how you managed it. And as for you, Adi, you have my sympathy. Glad it’s over. 🙂

      I’ve only had trouble with one cat in my life, and he just objected to the idea. If I had gotten him into the tub, he probably would have calmed down. My trick is to not put them IN the water, just have it running or have a bucket of water in the tub near them. I also hold one of their legs , holding the paw down against the bottom of the tub. That generally works.
