The Cat Lover

HoodieZombie: " Why all the hate? He is obviously not in a rich area, his cats probably had fleas or were caked in dirt and he is clearly not in america. it's the best this man can do, he just wants them to feel clean, maybe thats something he doesn't get often? You don't know him, don't judge him."

Thanks ~HoodieZombie. U Save me. I can not speak English more a lot how to explain everyone here. I'm just know my uncle very2 like and love the cat. I'm like Photography and grazy about HDR editing.

Don't let some of these comments bother you ... they border on sheer ignorance or stupidity.

"I would never cage my cats."  ... Oh, really? :omg:
"A cat lover does not put a cat in a cage." ... You. Don't. Say. :iconblinksplz:

I don't know to feel happy for these people, who have not had to use a cage for their cats, or to feel sorry for their ignorance.

Wow, some people get upset over the weirdest things.  He's giving them a bath, not hurting them.  Normally cats can take care of themselves, but not always.  I have an 18 year old cat that I found as a kitten on the side of the road.  His hair was matted, he was covered with fleas, he had ear mites and was very near death.  I had to give that kitten a bath a half dozen times with flea shampoo before I got rid of all the fleas.  I had to clean his ears out with swabs twice a day for a week and put in medicine to kill the mites. I had to cut out the matted hair.  It was not a fun ordeal for the kitten, but he survived and is a happy, healthy elderly cat now.  For all we know this guy is a veterinarian assistant getting these cats ready for adoption. 

It is a heartwarming photo.  Very nice!

Hm, the cats already look shiny and nice. They seem a lot calmer than my cats do when they get dirty enough for me to have to bathe them (I usually come out of the experience with quite a few scratches).

Ahhhh ... this lovely pic warms my heart! I don't usually like seeing pics of cats being bathed (don't get me wrong, I know it is necessary sometimes, even though cats do not require regular baths), but this one is exceptional. There is so much warmth and gentle love in his face, it gives me goosebumps (in a nice way). A man that loves cats so much must have a heart of gold. Thank you for sharing.

The Haters can go to hell. He is doing his best. In fact, i do not give them a lot of baths, but i still recognize the fact they need to be cleaned as well.

Wow, so many angry comments. And it's a picture of a man washing cats *amazed* and I really have to fight myself not to get pulled down in the infected discussion in the comments. I want to explain, defend, condemn, scream at the top of my lungs (metaphorically speaking that is), but I won't.

Instead I will say that I really like this picture. I like the way he smiles and the colors and environment. It looks like he does his best to care for the two kittens even though he might be poor and not have the "proper" tools. I think this picture deserves its dd.

So there. Now I'm going home. *leaves*

Seriously, people. If someone was so abusive to a cat to have it live in a cage, why would they care enough to wash it?
