Re: Frequency of baths

Casper usually showers every couple of days with a mister bottle. Lets just say he tolerates it although he doesn't get very wet.
Today, because he has started moulting Margaret decided that a bath was the order of the day so put about an inch of tepid water in the kitchen sink and dumped him in and started splashing water over his back. He wasn't best pleased and tried to climb out a couple of times but didn't fight back.
He was so glad to be taken back to his cage that he flew the last six feet, making his usual five point landing. He is now sitting at the top of the cage basking in the warmth of the health lamp and pretending he has a smoker's cough.
