Been there on the skunk detail for dogs....twice....different dogs. It's no fun, especially when you are wandering the neighborhood asking for hydrogen peroxide from everyone to have enough for the hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/dishwashing detergent wash for a big dog. Oh, and the hubby and son were both out of town the last time it happened so I was on my own. Did I mention the injured skunk was still in the yard and I had to tie up the dog while washing him outside?

Oh, I was doing well until the bloody arm and then I lost it.....sfill giggling!

I'm rolling! Poor DH. I bet cat like baths about as much as my white Husky that was sprayed years ago. Tomatoe juice doesn't work for white unless they need a dye job!

copied from the internet - that means it is true and free

How to Wash the Cat

Thoroughly clean the toilet.
Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water, and have both lids lifted.
Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids (you may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape).
Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for any purchase they can find.
Flush the toilet three or four times.
Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where he will dry himself.

Not funny, but hilarious to think about! Poor kitty! Poor owners! May DH's wounds heal quickly.

OMG that was hysterical! I don't own cats and never had a dog sprayed but after reading this I'm so grateful!!!
Wine is the reward for now but you need a spa day!!!

Little Kitty now has a slight aroma of skunk with over tones of vinegar.

And my other cat, who has 40% vision loss, thinks a new cat has moved into the house was hissing and spitting after he saw Little Kitty after the bath. "Big Kitty" relies on smell and sort of sight. Well, Little Kitty looked different (wet, sad) and smelled different (Skunk, Dawn soap and vinegar), so I can see Big Kitty's point.

And Hubby's arm looks better this morning. Only two scratches.

"Big Kitty" is Cesar and "Little Kitty" is Monty. Big Kitty weighs 18 pounds compared to the other cat who is 10 lbs (soaking wet . . . LOL-sorry, I couldn't resist)
