|After her first soak in clean water|
Since the weather is absolutely gorgeous right now, Oswin is allowed and very very willing to go out. Yesterday as well. She was back soon however. And completely soaked! When I picked her up, I didn't smell wet cat though. I smelled cow poo!
Oswin is so interested in the (cattle) farm not too far from me, that she probably fell into something she shouldn't have fallen into! It was awful. I tried to rinse it all off, which she didn't particularly like, but after the rinse she still smelled like cow poo. Harder measures were needed.
I filled up the sink with warm water, added a good dose of apple shampoo and dunked her in. I managed to give her a good washing, before she was completely fed up with it and started fighting back. But, after a good soaping, she needed a good rinsing, so off to the shower we went. Not happy there either, but I got her clean (enough).
I got the big fluffy towel out, the one I had been saving for myself if ever I felt really sorry for myself and dried her off. And then I gave her a bit of food, which she gobbled up, smelling like apple shampoo.
|See, not so big after all!|
Well, at least I now know that most of her is hair! Because she was decidedly thin after her wash! I just hope she will leave the cow shed well alone...
