How to Dry Wet Cats - The Slash & Bronzy Method

I have often been asked how I dry my cats after bathing them.

It is easy with Bronzy.
Her short fur dries pretty quickly on its own.
On cold days, I can use the blow-dryer on her as she is quite tolerant of it.

Slash, on the other hand, takes longer than 24 hours to dry.
And while it is not impossible to speed up the process with a blow-dryer,
believe me when I say that he makes the task quite challenging.

The other thing about a wet Slash is that he will hunt down all my important paperwork to sit on.
Immigration documents, lecture notes, handwritten letters from friends...
I'd find them wet, smudged and ripped if I neglect to hide them away.

So here is my easy solution...
Clean towels, an empty cabinet and 2 wet cats.


Slash and Bronzy will happily nap there for hours, leaving all my papers safe and dry.

We rarely get wet, but when we do, we lick ourselfs dry. TBT is always amazed that it works!

That is a good idea. They look very content there.

See, that is a smart human thing to do - come up with something awesome that the kitties will prefer! Paws up!

Brilliant! The kitties look very happy there :)

What a smart move! We love it. But we don't love baths.

Smart solution! Melly takes a long time to dry too, and she is terrified of the blow-drier. I will have to try your method!
