Poor Bailey has a bit of a compromised immune system from being shuffled around from home to shelter to new home, and has had a bit of a skin infection for the past few weeks.  His owners asked if I could give him his medicated bath twice a week since their groomer was ill.  I agreed of course (because I just love all of them) and it has been an adventure.  The first day I had to give the bath in the tub since it was too cold to do it outside.  I started out dry and on the floor and ended up just getting in there with him because I had no other way to get his whole body.  We were both soaked head to toe, the bathroom was covered in dog hair (as was I), but Bailey was a great sport.

Now that it is warmer, Terry and I have been bathing him out back with the hose.  This has been MUCH easier, however the point of the bath is to keep the medicated shampoo on for 15 min.  Although Bailey is quite cooperative, he now tried to avoid the bath at all costs.  Today he jumped up on the table like a billy goat.  Silly boy!

Just another album of awesome views from different client windows.  I become mesmerized with these picturesque views of the city!

Trying to get the word out about this cat.  He showed up on my clients front step about 2 months ago. He was a sweetie pie and jumped right in her lap.  He hadn't returned until last week.  He was dirty and skinny, so she took him in.  Obviously he was a house cat that someone decided they didn't want anymore.  He now needs a home.  She has named him Grayson and he is a super laid back cat.  He had his vaccines this week, he is felv/fiv negative, and he will be neutered on Saturday.  He loves human company and head pets, but is a bit wary of too much handling.  (He must have a had a rough time on the street and in his previous home)  He will immediately sit on your lap and purr, this is just what he wants.  He is a great eater, about  a year old, and just needs some TLC.  The new owner must be patient with him, as he does not like to be picked up.  He doesn't hiss or growl or scratch, he just whips his head around quickly to make sure you let go.  I"m sure once he is in a stable home he will learn to trust again.  For now, he is treating his foster home like a spa.  He lounges on a chaise, gets good meals, and enjoys plenty of head scratches.  Can anyone give him a home??
