Back in early winter when we first started getting some colder weather, I was in the bathroom blow drying my hair. Both cats were outside on the screened in porch. Hubby let them in and Nugget, the blonde tabby, ran straight to the bathroom. He began rubbing on my legs and his cold furry body sent a shudder up my spine. I said, “Brrrrrr, buddy, you’re as cold as a popsicle!” I put the blow dryer on its gentle setting and I started warming him up. Now, this is a cat who is terrified of the vacuum cleaner but loves the blow dryer. Go figure. He loved me blow drying him. And I mean LOVED it. He rolled around purring loudly and kept wanting more.
Ever since then, when it’s cold outside, we open the door to the porch and Nugget comes running in and heads straight for the bathroom because, well, you guessed it, he wants to be blow dried. If it’s warm outside, he’ll head straight to the kitchen for his treat, but if it’s cold, he wants the darn blow dryer. And if you don’t come right away, he’ll peek his head around the bathroom door as if to ask, “Are you coming or not?” So mommy blow dries him while daddy just shakes his head and rolls his eyes during this entire winter escapade.
This was kinda cute at first but now it’s rather annoying. Hubby tells me that I’ve created a monster. Yes, I have and yes, my cats are spoiled. Nugget will NOT let you forget to blow dry him. Our other cat, Dakota, is scared of the blow dryer and wants no part of it but he dearly loves to watch me blow dry his brother. He watches from a safe distance of course.
Do you have a pet that likes the blow dryer? I’ve heard of some cats and dogs who like to be vacuumed. Do you have one of those pets?
