Bad Kitty Thursday!

This is Mommy here today. Just look at what Gizmo did last night!

There was a table with a mist fountain on it (like the one below). There was also a small shelf on the wall WAY above it. Well, Gizmo got the bright idea of trying to "drink" from this fountain.
She climbed up on the table and when she put her paws on the edge of the fountain...SPLASH....JUMP...BUMP...CRASH!!!

She got wet and jumped and tried to LAND on the shelf!!! And the fountain crashed to the ground spilling water and glass everywhere!!! This was at 10pm, bedtime, and we were up for an hour cleaning up the glass and vacuming the carpet. She got in trouble and by the time we had ran in there to see what happened, she was on the kitchen table looking quite guilty! See, all we heard was a crash of glass, so my hubby grabbed his gun and went to check all the windows and look for bad guys!!! But, it was just Gizmo...being Gizmo...

**Excuse the mess, things were thrown everywhere trying to find all the glass**
What the fountain looked like:And After:You can see the shelf in this one: Gizmo here: I didn't do it!!! ok...ok...yes, I did...I am sorry Mommy. Guess what they did to me as punishment? They gave me a bath!! Yes, you read right. A bath. Ugh...

Mommy: Gizmo, you were shedding everywhere and you had a few knots of fur back there that needed to be cut out b/c your hair is so thick!

Gizmo: Well....I do have to admit I am now all fresh and clean for my man, Redfurd. **sigh**

Do any of you ever get a bath? Do you find it as unacceptable as I do? I mean, afterward I spent all night giving myself a real bath to fix my fur!

Awww, poor Gizmo, you shouldn't get punished for an accident (or anything) It was lucky you didn't hurt your paws on the broken glass. I bet I couldn't resist a fountain either.

My brother Gerry gets a bath now and again as he is can't groom himself, his tongue is totally smooth. He isn't keen, but as long as our humans are quiet and very gentle he doesn't get upset.

PS: Furminators are very good for getting out all of our shedding fur! They feel nice.

Wowie! You really did cause a big oopsie! I am glad that you did not get hurt!
None of us get baths, but we do all get furminated.
It is a great tool and gets mats out easily!

I'm most sowwy that your mommy and daddy thought it could possibly have happened ANY other way! ~Lovingly, Redfurd~ Can I seez the baff pics? tee hee hee

gizmo. that wasn't very bright.

i've never given the boyz baths. diego-san kinda got a sponge bath once- i just used to my hands to coat his fur with water. he seemed to like that.

Daisy said...

Uh oh, Gizmo, that sounds like quite an event! I am glad you were not hurted.

I have never had a bath before. But my furs are pretty thin.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oops, stuff happens. Our beans had one of those, on a taller stand tho, until Sadie came. She thawt anything with any water in it was a place to drink. It's in a box in da basement. Sadie is also da reason da toilet seat lid must be kept down...again, giant water bowl.

Poor Gizmo. At least you weren't hurt with all of that glass. I used to get a bath as a kitten, but my mom brushes me every day so I don't get too many mats. I don't like the water so much (except to drink, of course!).

The Crew said...

We never get baths 'cause we keep ourselves very clean and Mom would only give us a bath if we got into something yukky that stuck to our furs. 2 of us get mats and Mom just snips them out.
