Sorry if it's posted here somewhere already, I did a search and didn't find it if so. But for your enjoyment....

Seems a bit cruel to me.

Oh, I agree, but it's got that train wreck humor/appeal to it, to me at least. I'd like to know who thought it'd be a good idea to combine cats, enclosed spaces, and water jets. I'd like to meet them to recommend a job working for the CIA doing "interrogations".

I've got to wonder what it's going to be like for the cat's owner to try to put the cat into the "spa" a second time, once the cat recognizes the destination. Things could get nasty.

I can't see the video here (it's filtered) but from what I can gather here there's some kind of a contraption for giving your cat a shower?

As an experienced cat keeper, I have to agree with Jim. If your cat doesn't want to go into that thing, it'll try to rip you to shreds. And while he or she won't succeed (I don't think anyone's ever been killed by a cat), a lot of damage can be done.

My mother regularly gave a bath to our cat. This was a wild cat if you know what I mean. I think, my mother enjoyed walking all scratched. I could never understand this.

Ok the cat got my sympathy but..... ......I think the cat itself does the trick of rinsing itself by jumping all the time around!!!
Ok, I got to be bit serious about pet rights here.... I too think it is cruel... but.. Who the hell invented this machine....

Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
