Joke of The Day

1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water and have both
lids up.
3. Find the cat and soothe him while you carry him toward the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids.
(You may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape.) The cat will
self-agitate and make ample suds.  Never mind the noises that come from
your toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his claws will
be reaching out for anything they can find.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times.  This provides a Power "Wash"
and "Rinse", which I have found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no
people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where
he will dry himself.

Quote of The Day

"I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger."
