10 Pets Who Would Rather Stay Dirty

It’s time for a bath, but these pets aren’t having it.

My cat hates water. Loathes it. Even just stepping in a puddle on the bathroom floor is cause for him to freeze, lay his ears back and stare at me like I’ve just stolen the last cat treat on earth.

As you can imagine, giving him the rare bath is an experience for us both — usually one that ends with him plotting my demise and me desperately trying to open a box of Band-Aids with bleeding hands.

Here are some pets that completely relate to my cat when it comes to bath time.

1. You don’t know when. You don’t know where. But you know you’ll pay for this.
