kat the cat


last night we gave kat her tomato juice bath.

in this photo, she’s almost dry,
but still not too happy about the whole thing.

and…she still stinks.

poor old kat.

i might give robin’s recipe a try this weekend.

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
¼ cup of baking soda
1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap

Mix the three ingredients together and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these 
ingredients lasts only a limited time. If you use this formula to remove skunk odor from your pet, be 
sure to rinse your pet off with water. Do not let the solution soak for more than a few minutes. 
Paul Krebaum, a chemist for the Molex corporation in Lisle, Illinois, has developed this odor remover 
which works on anything including decomposing organic matter, fecal matter, urine & skunk spray.

( robin, thanks for the recipe. )

    oh, nance.. I still get the shivers when I remember our little dog getting surprised by a skunk in the wee hours when I was up late reading ..Of course the can of tomato I dumped on him in the laundry tub was diced and he kept trying to eat them while I tried to mush them into his fur and skin..It did an okay job , but only time made the difference.

    The dogs used to have this problem, forgot they were hunting birds and ran down holes after the skunks. We went through a lot of cans of t-juice. I can't imagine trying to do this with my cat without a stiff drink for both of us. ;-)

    This remind me of that cartoon … Peepy Lepeu (spelled wrong, probably). The black cat gets a paint stripe down her back and the skunk thinks she is a female skunk… Hope the smell goes away!
