How am I doing?

Chester here. My secretary has been neglecting her transcribing duties but she finally set aside some time for me so I can update my blog!

So there's this other cat - Garfield - living with me and my humans now. I know what you're all thinking...how am I doing?  Well, thank you for your concern.

At first I was pretty mad - who was this smelly cat behind the door in that small room where I sometimes wait for ma and dad?

Then I was perplexed.

Then I was pleased. Does this look familiar - it's in the picture above this one. They bought it for him - don't I look good sitting on it?

The thing is - this guy is no threat to me!

Actually, I've taken him under my paw. He needs a lot of help

About his dirty and smelly coat. I like to think I had something to do with him getting help. I took one whiff of his tail after his first bath (the one where he was covered in something called Fast Orange grease remover and then shampooed) and bit him on the back. Guy - do something with that stinky tail!

His tail needed to be cleaned again with the Fast Orange to get rid of that odor. After that, ma and dad washed his tail again with a stud tail creme to loosen more dirt and bathed him a few days later with a shampoo for oily coats. Finally - they got him really clean. Here's the kid after his last bath (he looks good, huh?)


  1. WOW!! What a cutie Garfield is!! And he did clean up good!! Welcome Garfield!! We are very pleased to meet you!!
    Your TX furiends,

  2. Good grief! How dirty and smelly was he????
    He definitely needs yours help, Chester.
    How nice of you to take him under yours paw.
    He is a furry lucky boy indeed.
    Love & Purrs,

    1. This would make a good blog entry. Before his first bath, he felt gritty - like he rolled around in dirt. My husband doesn't have a good sense of smell and even he could smell him(!) He smelled like he had been living on the streets.

      (Not exactly sure why he smelled so bad but his former owners weren't giving him the care he required, then he was sent to live in the cellar of a New York City store, and he has a long silky coat that can get oily if he isn't bathed.) -Mom Janna

  3. We are glad you took a liking to Garfield. Makes everyone's life much happier :)

    He cleaned up real nice. I'm sure he feels better now, too.
