Havent taken Kritter into the shower yet, but he LOVES to bathe. I warmed up some filtered water, put it into an old terra cotta dish, and let him go after it. This was the first time we used this dish, and he got quite wet. I dried him some with a paper towel, then gave him a piece of the towel to play with. Didnt leave him soaking wet for just a minute or so. He is still preening now.
