There I was.........

relaxing in the grass enjoying the sun.......

when suddenly I saw it!

I had to sit up to have a better look.

Look at the state of you Dougal!

Go and give yourself a bath! No self respecting kitty would ever let themselves be seen looking like that.

We dunno...have you SEEN The Baby after a dirt bath? She turned PINK once after rolling in the red dirt in our yard.

Sagira said...

Oh my goodness that would have scared me! I think he is kind of cute though. :)

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Can Dougal reach around with his tongue to groom himself? Maybe he needs you to show him how it's done.

The Lee County Clowder said...

Has Dougal be hanging out in a big puddle somewhere? If it is as hot there as it is here, that would start to sound like a relly good idea.

Brian said...

Maybe you could ride him to the horse wash Flynn!

Oui Oui said...

Oh my! Has someone been rolling in the dirt?

Sparkle said...

Not all creatures can be as pristine as us kitties!

Derby, Ducky said...

Dougal must not be a self-respecting horsie. Plus, they depend on a bean to help make them clean.

Prancer Pie said...

He doesn't look a bit shamed, Flynn. Best try another tactic!

Cat Street Boyz said...

Oh Dougal, you sure are on top of your world. Flynn, horses love to roll in the dusty dirt......seems to us we have also seen a couple of orange and white brothers dust rolling too!
Thank you for our birthday wishes, Tinker and Tang=^Y^=

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Maybe sumkitty could help him out and give him a baff, Flynn? It might take a pretty long time but I'm sure he'd be grateful.

Hey--You are Viceroy of Cow Hollow, now Buddy.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am sure you were tactful and gave him excellent grooming advice!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Can you show Dougal the best way to wash his tail Flynn?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Akshully, Flynnie, Gandalf LOVES nothing better than a good roll in the dirts. Swamp dirts, no less. srsly.

Mollie said...

You tell him, Flynn. No self respect.

Poppy Q said...

It would be a big job for you to lick him clean.

Marg said...

Oh Douglas, that looks like that was a great roll in the dirt. WEll done. See Flynn, he likes to roll around just like you. Hope all of you have a great day.

speedyrabbit said...

The Island Cats said...

Dougal must like rolling in the dirt like you, Flynn!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Has been having a great roll in the dirt? Or maybe in manure? LOL.

Caren Gittleman said...

oh my! I bet his tongue can't reach to clean up all of that dirt!

Kjelle Bus said...

I can tell you if a horse should be that near me I would ran like h.ll :)

ANGEL ABBY said...

Oh my Flynn I can see why you would sit up!

Alice Marie said...

I don't know...I like a good roll in the dirts too.

Laila and Minchie said...

We think Dougal saw you rolling in the dirt and it looks so refreshing, he decided to do it too. Boy, look at the feets on that dude!

Madi and Mom said...

Dougal is a beautiful critter...mom and I must admit we aren't sure the if he is a horse or a mule as he is must unusual looking!!
hugs madi your bfff

William said...

Maybe you need to give him a lick or two to help him get started!

Terri said...

Now Flynn, horses have to have human help with their baths! Maybe you could give some advice on how to stay clean, though :)

The Meezers or Billy said...

get the hose!!!

Texas, a Cat in... Austin said...

Hopefully he doesn't want you to give him a bath!

Fur Everywhere said...

You could teach him a thing or two about grooming, Flynn!

It does look like Dougal might have treated himself to a roll on the ground and had a dust bath - but you are right, Flynn, he needs a proper bath now.

You´re a lucky guy Flynn!
Dougal is beautiful!

Katie Isabella said...

I wonder why Dougal got into that state? Is he troubled with other matters perhaps? xox

Kari said...

Poor Dougal. He can't get himself into the positions we cats can so self grooming is a bit of a problem for him.
We know you'd love to help him but you would wear your tongue down to nothing before you finished even a quarter of him!
Lots of love to you both.

Kitties Blue said...

We've never seen one of those in the flesh before. It looks pretty big and scary. There's supposed to be a pony buried in our back yard, but he's been there about 100 years, so we're not scared of him.

Oh my these are GORGEOUS. The 4th one made my day!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Does Mum or Dad give him baffs?

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Dirty Dougal, hahameow! Teri had a friend who was a blacksmith and he had a calico cat in his shop and while he was always black and sooty, she somehow kept herself groomed to purrfection!.
