:shock: :lol: Not a bad idea actually, have you ever tried to give a cat a bath? Once my cat came home & had been soaked in motor oil somehow. I had to bathe & bathe & bathe and bathe. My arms looked like I'd gone through a jungle of thorns by the time I was done.

1) open up toilet
2) place cat into toilet bowl
3) close lid on cat
4) flush toilet until cat is clean
5) open toilet

LOL

Actually a decent idea. Bathing cats takes practice. I'm fairly experienced at it these days, but I had to learn to wear leather gloves to do it, and keep the water temperature higher than what you would use for yourself because cats have a higher body temperature than humans do. If the water is at a "human" temp, the cat will be cold.

I have to say this machine is awful. That cat was completely panicked and frightened out of its mind by all appearances. When I wash my cat, yes he meows and wants to get out, but he doesn't think he's going to drown. When the owner is there and the cat trusts them, they can overcome their instinctive fear of water and endure what's being asked of them... but this thing... for all that poor cat knows it's been locked in a box that is filling with water and it cannot get out. I think it's horrid. :(

I am glad to know that about the water temp Qmaus, thanks for that tip.

Any chance we could get one of these for Buaz? He could really use a bath.

I'm no friend to cats, but I could not watch the video all the way through. That poor thing was scared sh**less. Good luck trying to wash the same cat twice.... or try to get it to come to you.

My guess is that the first chance that cat gets, he is gone gone gone.
