Ladies and gentle tabbies, next time your feline friend/employer goes hiking through tall grasses and ends up covered in pollen and smelly plant funk, may I suggest a waterless bath using John Paul Pet Waterless Foam Shampoo for Dogs & Cats ($12.99). It smells great and dries quicker than two swishes of a cat’s tail.
While on safari yesterday in my back yard, I wandered into uncharted territory. I cannot help it; I have an explorer’s heart, and I’m compelled to go where no other cat — as far as I know — has gone before. In this case, that included a tall patch of wildflowers and grasses.
Unfortunately, my curiosity left my normally immaculate coat in a state of disarray. I came out covered with pollen and a mysteriously stinky plant filth.
Back at the office, I charged my assistant with finding an immediate solution. I am a kitty supermodel, after all. There’s no way I’m going about my day with my fur in less than tip-top condition.
Meow! Time was of the essence because I had a nap scheduled for the early afternoon. My assistant rushed out to Petco and returned with John Paul Pet Waterless Foam Shampoo for Dogs & Cats ($12.99, part of a line that also includes a gentle puppy and kitten shampoo, paw wipes, and ear and eye wipes).
She squeezed a few pumps in her hand, and a smile spread across my feline face. Mmmm… It smelled faintly of powder and almonds.
It’s designed to penetrate, deep clean and deodorize coats for water-averse cats and dogs while gently soothing skin.
Ingredients: Water (aqua), cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, hydrolyzed whole oats (pending), chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, sodium hydroxymethlgycinate, cocamide DEA, citric acid, propylene glycol, fragrance (parfum).
She massaged the luxurious foam into my fur, avoiding my sensative ears and eyes, working all the way down to the tip of my tail.
I recorded the massage on my iPhone, and I think you can tell by my purrs that I enjoyed it.
After that, she brushed the product through my fur until it dried, which, much to my delight, only took a few minutes.
Ooh-la-la! My fur was incredibly soft. I could actually see the difference. It definitely looked smoother and smelled better. I felt like a million bucks and, because it dried so quickly, I didn’t have to reschedule my nap.
Tabby needs his beauty sleep!
According to the side of the bottle, the product was tested on humans first, and it’s cruelty-free. That gets two husky paws up from me.
Who is Tabs the Cat?
About seven years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model).
