We took the cats to their normal bath and brush-up today...
Bon-Bon had become very knotted in places. we had gone slightly over the six-weekly cycle - by a mile (last time we took them was 2 December 2006). They had to take quite a bit of fur off Bon-Bon and now she looks a bit skinny and pathetic. Poor Bon-Bon. Being a chinchilla, thankfully, it'll soon grow. Biscuit doesn't look much different!
Predictably, both cats were apparently a nightmare to bath - plenty of spitting and hissing (and that was from the grommers!)
Ann's thinking that we should look for somewhere a little closer and cheaper..
