Tonight is True Blood night which means that Ma will spend an hour ignoring me and watching the vampires and wolves and southerners on the TV. She is reading the booksat the moment by Charlaine Harris, they are ok but Ma says they are a bit weird and Sookie is a whiner. Do any of your pawrents like True Blood or the Sookie Stackhouse books?
Ma is giving me more cuddles lately because I smell "soapy and clean". Pfft!
This would be because of this torture:
Yes puppies and kitties, you are right...
First she makes me wear her hideous shower cap that she uses to stop her hair getting wet in the shower. It is terrible. It is pink with a lacy trim. Ma says that even she is embarassed by it but it was the last one they had in the shop. Yeah Right!
Secondly she gets the taps flowing to clean the dust out of the bath cos she is lazy and doesn't clean it often... And the cold tap always runs orange for 3 seconds because the pipes are stuffed (with what?). But after that it is filling time of the olde batharoo.
I waited nervously... she always traps me in.
Ma went through a fad of Finding Nemo... we have towels, face clothes and pillowcases featuring dear Nemo... who turns out was found quite fine. At my last count our hall cupboard has about 7 Nemo's featured on various items.
Thirdly the torturous experience begins:
The reason I had to have a batharoo was because dear Summer of Team Husky fame decided to fine something delectable and tasty to roll in and then she ran past me and left residue on my ear and shoulder... the smallest speckles of delight were aparently too much for Mother Dearests far-too-sensitive nostrils.
So bathtime was scheduled. And I am back in my purple and lime collar to show off to all and sundry.
The collars are taking off! All my friends have copied me and have lovely coloured collars... And then I hear there might be some orange webbing going - OH DEAR! I sure don't need another collar, but maybe something else can be orange for me.
