Brendan Takes a Bath

The Carnival this week is at Catcall

Brendan is sixteen and he needs his comforts during our long New Hampshire winter. There are few things as relaxing as a warm bath to make you forget that outside the world is still covered in billows of soft white snow. Or, as we've had this winter, freezing rain on top of New England Hard Pack. So Brendan goes in the bathroom and howls loudly, demanding attention until one of us goes in and turns on the water for him. Warm. This morning he did it at 4 AM but I just picked him up and brought him back to bed where he sang me to sleep.

He is sitting is about two inches of water,

Then you need a nice plushy towel to dry off with of course.

He's so funny! I thought I had the only ones like this. Mine all love to sit in the tub with the water running.

I purchased a baby bathtub (entirely flat bottom) at a yard sale and occasionally put it in the real bathtub with about three inches of water. They go crazy. When they tire, yeah right, I toss in a ping pong ball or two and the fun starts in earnest.

Thank you for taking the time to photograph.

Down here at the tip of New Jersey we have all kinds of art contests. I always entire my animal photos just to get animals noticed. To my surprise many other people enter animal photos also, but that doesn't stop me.

I would suggest you check around for a place to display your photos. If there are not contests, what about at a restaurant, library or a fabric store. You have quite a collection and there is more than one way to help animals.

I have a photo on display at a local restaurant of six cats circling a pot of greens munching away. I have a sign under it saying only one of these six can live, which one, neuter or spay your pet. Then, there is a donation can. Perhaps something like that could help with your costs.
