Showering!!!

One of his favourites! He simply loves his showers, i'll try to get better pics up, i have another one, with my sisters legs in it, so she'd probably kill me if i posted it. But here he is enjoying a shower with my sis!

Oh my, look at his face, he is sure enjoying that.

Look at his foot, can't you just here him "No pictures please, I'm in the shower"

Brilliant.

Re: Showering!!!

LOL, awww, how cute.... I wish I could take pictures while Cricket was showering... wish I could get him to take a shower... I think next time I am going to try a pressure washer j/k

Peta- I think I asked this before and it went unanswered. Do greys have something on thier feathers that keep them from getting wet. The water runs off her as if she was part duck or something.

Re: Showering!!!

Its the powder in their feathers, that seems to make the water run off. When Cricket has had a really good soaking, feel her feathers, they will be wet, but most of it has just run off.

Re: Showering!!!

Squeaky is kinda like Mac then, Mac would prefer to bathe in his water bowl, but at least tolerates the shower - only if Hamlet is in there with him!
