Casper's not sure what you're looking at. Don't all dogs have a personal massage therapist on call at bath time? You can stay and watch, but please don't make too much noise. You might disrupt his inner meditation.
- "I have a friend who is beautiful but decided to get Botox injections in/around her eyes. Unfortunately, when your eyes look like you're 18 again and the rest of your face looks like you're 30 — well, all the 30's bits start to look more noticeable." — sweetvanity
- "I associate the plastic Botox look with older women. So when I see younger women, like Kim Kardashian, with the same look, they appear older." — Faylinn
- "Scary! My mom is being pushed toward Botox as a potential fix for her chronic migraines, but this is just one more reason for her to resist." — Morokea

Survey says most of you are not frequently bathing felines, but what happens if you suddenly
want need to? While you can grab this foam for a quick scrub, I stumbled upon three items for a more thorough cleansing.
As the post title implies, each one serves a certain cat with certain ingredients:
- The Scratchy Cat Shampoo ($13) is purr-fect for dry, irritated skin to relieve flaking and dander with Tea Tree Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Oat Protein, and Aloe Vera.
- The Shaggy Cat Shampoo ($13) is paw-some for longhaired pets — it reduces shedding and matting with a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner by detangling with Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Aloe Vera Gel.
- The Smelly Cat Shampoo ($13) gets out cat-astrophic stinks by neutralizing odors. The deodorizing product features natural fragrances of Oatmeal, Lavender and Rosemary to help smells begone, not just covered up.
- Cut back: Obviously, the easiest solution is to turn down the heat, whether it's the temperature of your water or the setting of your blow-dryer. If you absolutely have to have warm temps while you bathe, consider either wearing a shower cap or turning the cold nob up while you wash your hair.
- Add moisture: In lieu of a daily shampoo, try using a clarifying shampoo weekly instead. I'm not saying to only wash your hair once a week, but by using a clarifier, you might actually feel as if you need to shampoo less. Speaking of washing, look for mild, scalp-friendly formulations with naturally soothing ingredients like burdock root or tea tree oil.
While there are some who are actually grossed out by baths or just simply prefer showers, I've got to say, I'm a "team bath" kind of gal — even going so far as to boil extra water to make the water the perfect temperature. Of course, there are scary bathtub scenes (ahem, Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction) but here are a few other memorable bathtub scenes. So, sit back, relax, grab the Mr. Bubble, and tell us some of your own favorite bathtub moments.
Um, whoa. That looks like a helpless puppy trapped in a washing machine. But, while that's technically what it is, he's meant to be in there. Check out this interesting creation to come out of France — the Dog-o-Matic, an automatic dog-washing vending machine.
Owners choose the required wash cycle and load the (unsuspecting) pooch into the proper machine size costing about $18 for small, $31 for medium, and $44 for the largest pets. Most of you loved the dog/car wash so what's your take on this washing machine?
