Tanya the Terrible
It is bathing time.
Of all the cats, Tanya does not like to be disturbed and is the most snappy.
Though she had three operations to fix her face and a broken leg, her first vet said she is pretty like a poster girl. And EJ bet Tanya knows it as she is surly, grouchy and obnoxious.
She demands for her food and will call non-stop, not loud and crude but in the most lady-like way. Her calls are even more insistent when her toilet trays are soiled. EJ has to drop whatever that moment and attend to her demands.
When it comes to her bathing time, it is almost like war. Luckily Tanya does not bite or scratch. She hisses, wails and protests very loudly, making her housemates wide eyed in horror and scurrying, thinking in their little brains that she is being horribly tortured.
EJ uses two towels in double layer to wipe Tanya dry and by now her anger is at its height. She would be twisting and kicking; and kicked a hole in one of the towels.
She would put on her most angry and sourpuss face when being blown dry in the cage.
