Back to Normal: As Normal as Normal Can Be

KATIE:  I want to thank all of you for your kind words and concern for me after yesterday's not-so-funny blog post. Life is complicated enough living with Waffles. Couple that with an unexpected trip to the vet and it's a recipe for disaster. 

Earlier today, Glogirly lifted Waffles' quarantine... much to my chagrin. I kind of like having the orange terrorist contained behind a locked door. But I suppose all good things must come to an end.



So I've been making up for lost time by focusing on my beauty regime. 



You would not BELIEVE how hard it is to get the smell of a fresh BATH off your fur. 



That's right, I had a BATH. In the TUB. With WATER. And cat SHAMPOO. Did you hear that, Waffles??? I had a BATH and it's all your fault.



WAFFLES:  *gulp*


When Being a Brat is Normal:
Displacement Aggression in Cats
If you're just tuning in, we published a very important blog post yesterday about Displacement Aggression in Cats and our own experience dealing with it. It's important because we think it may help many of our friends and readers overcome this very common problem. 

Click HERE to read about what we've learned and what works for us.

  4. We're glad the quarantine is over, even if you aren't exactly thrilled about it. MOL!

    Aggression is not a fun thing, especially in your own house.

    We hope you have a calm weekend.

  9. Yup, that's what works for us too if it's a serious enough smell. They don't enjoy it, but do they tolerate it. It's one of life's necessary evils.

  17. I am so glad you are back to normal dear Katie. I so sorry it happened in the first place. Vet visits are pawful esp wif being drugged. Waking up not knowing what happened it tough.

    I keep you in my kitty thoughts that you will remind Waffles - who the boss really is.

    Love
    Belle

  18. Yes, we have one that does that too anytime someone goes to the vet. He has now earned many vet trips for no reason other than so he won't get aggressive with the other cats. Our vet acts like we are nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh no! Why did you have to have a bath? That is just plain unfair :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. Waff, I think you need to give Katie some of your Chicken to say you are sorry..

  21. We are so glad that things are back to normal and the kitty shampoo makes your fur shine extra nicely Katie.

  22. After last night's emergency run with Ernie, I'm going to need those tips you posted yesterday. Wally is not a happy camper when Ernie comes back from the vet...and wearing a lampshade, to boot.

  30. We thought you girls likes all of that spa-ish stuff. But if you wanted to remove smells, why didn't you both end up with baths?

    ReplyDelete
  31. A bath...how unfair, but we must say, Katie, "You look meowvolous." Glad things are settling down again. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  32. Katie, I know that was hard and I know it seemed so unfair. But Waffles couldn't help himself. That didm;t help much but he was the one who had to leave everyone's company. Thank goodness you are all OK now.

  33. We are glad you are feeling better Katie, so sorry about the water bath, it does horrible things to our fur doesn't it. Really don't see how the people stand taking one of those every day. But Peeps are weird.

  34. A BATH!! Yikes! Waffles you better get back in quarantine to get away from Katie! On a positive note, Katie you look all sheen and a beauty as usual, after a bath.

    I am very happy all is well in the townhouse.

  36. I am sorely disappointed that Glogirly did not share pictures of you taking a bath Katie! I hope you are recuperated from your illness. Love Dolly
