Mancat Monday

Dragonheart grooming

It is important for Mancats to always be properly groomed. Although I get weekly baths, I still groom myself several times a day. My tongue, however, can't keep up with the oil my skin secretes, and since I have no fur for the oil to work itself through, the oil builds up on my skin. This necessitates weekly baths to keep me healthy and clean.

Dragonheart, you are a good mancat to keep yourself so clean!

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

I agree! Nothing sexier than a clean Mancat!

It must be so nice to have a bath Dragonheart. I know my kitties really despise it, because I have to spend about 3 hours afterward drying and brushing them, and they just want to hide under the bed and hiss at me! I wonder if I clipped them nice and short if they would like it more? Do you like your baths or just put up with them because you love your people? You are certainly looking handsome this morning!

Caesar and Princess said...

We hope you have a happy SHINY day.

I am glad you do not mind having frequent baths. I fear my claws would come unsheathed and Momma would have some marks to show for trying to put in water. YOU are furry brave and a true mancat.

Yes it is very important for a mancat to keep himself clean. I am always washing, in fact I have washed the fur on my tummy clean away. Eric isn't quite so fussy and I have to keep him clean and smelling sweet too.

Cheysuli said...

You look very clean to me Dragonheart! At least your human got a photo of you grooming when you were decent... so many don't!

Mom says she'd like to put Shaggy in the bathtub just to see what is actually under all his floofy fur.

Dragonheart you will be squeaky clean after your bath. We hates baths so we think you are very brave to do that every week.

Anni said...

Wow, you are very flexible Dragonheart! I wish Samantha and Bebe were so good about their baths.

Parker said...

You must stay clean to be a manly mancat! Good work!

Tyler said...

Keeping clean is a cat's very important job. You're lucky to get the help that you need from your folks.

China Cat or Willow said...

We are impressed with your grooming skills and you must be very flexible to turn all around like that. Happy Mancat Monday!

Between your grooming and your baths, you always look amazing. It is wonderful your beans take the time and effort to make sure you are well cared for and healthy. You are a very brave ManCat to take a bath. I'm not sure I'd ever be that brave. I'm pretty sure Bendrix would misbehave if a bath was attempted....

Karen Jo said...

You are doing an excellent job of grooming yourself, Dragonheart. You are very flexible.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Dragonheart you look very Manly in that Mancat photo!

I did not know that about the oil on your skin - very interesting!

Do you like bathes?

The Crew said...

I agree. It's critical for a Mancat to be well groomed at all times. You never know when your girlfriend may want you to come over!

Henry Helton said...

That is very true, us mancats must be properly groomed, AT ALL TIMES.

Mosaic Cats said...

Ooooo, can we see some photos of bath day next week?
We think you like to lay in the sun more than any other cat we know.
Either it's not very hot over there, or you are always chilly!
You might like North Carolina in the summer, DH!

Do you leak oil? Chey posted a story about a cat leaking oil!

Lux said...

Oh, it is quite manly to keep yourself clean - and you always look well-groomed to me!

Pablo said...

I've heard that you Sphynxes need baths. I'm sure you're used to them by now, but I still can't help shuddering at the thought of getting all wet once a week.

One-Eyed Jack said...

Wow, Dragonheart! I go away for a month and I'd swear you were twice as long and tall and man-catly!! And you have a girlfriendcat? Great Man-cat Monday!
