Cat torture? Where’s the cat-washing machine?

January 31, 2007

After talking to my wife about whether I should put my life on the line and try to give our cat Kula a bath, I came across this video on YouTube of a cat washing machine, called the PetSpa.

The machine is like a mini-sauna, which sprays the animal from three directions, and is perfectly safe for the cat physically (not mentally, from the looks of it).

This machine is GENIUS! Where is the nearest one to Lancaster, Pa.? Unfortunately, the PetSpa site has no directory of machine-owning businesses.

And will they fluff and fold the cat after the dryer cycle?

More after the break…


It works good for dogs too! See this clip:

If I can’t find a PetSpa location, I’ll have to go it alone and pray I don’t get clawed up by Kula, who will not go willingly into the shower stall.

Here’s another good video I found explaining the dangers of cat washing:

And also, here’s a funny clip from Confuse-a-Cat, Ltd., from Monty Python … for no reason other than it’s funny:

[UPDATE (Jan. 31): Yesterday, both of our cats got their bath in the hall bathtub. There were no marks left on me! 🙂 And Kula seemed to enjoy the warm water a little … in between yelps and desperate grabs for the tub rim. So not too shabby. Welcome to all the cat lovers finding this story because of CNN’s recent story on thePetSpa, in which PETA called the machine horrific… “like putting your dog in the dishwasher,” they were quoted.]
