An unhappy (but seriously adorable) kitty is forced to take a bath in a pink bucket. It's cute upon cute with a side helping of precious!

This poor cat really does look miserable throughout the ordeal. Note, for example, how he tries to escape his watery prison in the third photo.

Is it us, or does this cat look like a real life Hello Kitty? Pair her with a frog who looks like Keroppi, and you have the makings of a merchandising bonanza.

And although he's squeaky clean and poofed out at the end, the haunted look in this cat's eyes says he'll remember this for years to come. We know we will. Check out more photos of this bathing kitty who looks like a stuffed animal below.
