I have been remiss in giving mistings. Fortunately both Dalai & Lennie are happy to have baths. Perry will have a bath when there is a blue moon & equally Bezukhov will have a bath if he really, really needs one. Neither Perry or Lennie have partook in earlier mistings which may have further reduced my motivation to give them. However, a few days ago, I gathered together some celery leaves & the spray bottle & a misting was given.
As soon as Bezukhov saw the yellow spray bottle he knew what was coming & started to fluff himself up. He definitely prefers mistings to baths & went straight to the celery leaves to roll about under the water that I was spraying. He also went to the Thomas bath & had a dunk there as the spray from the water bottle was also going across that. All in all, he had a good wash! Dalai very briefly joined in. Perry & Lennie looked on in bemusement from afar.
Here are photos of Bezukhov after his misting:
Here he is having a thorough preen:
I must resolve to do more mistings, even if only Bezukhov is interested!
