I want to try and see if Spike likes the shower. I got a shower perch. Do you introduce them slow or do they just go in because you are in there and it must be safe?

I just took mine right in too. Just make sure the water pressure is not high and the temp is good.

I didn't introduce them gradually either. Make sure you don't put them fully under the spray and that the spray isn't too hard/hot. I get them in a bathy mood by splashing water at them while they're on the shampoo rack. Then i put them a bit closer so they're getting spray bouncing of my shoulders and stuff. I make sure their head never goes under the full spray of the shower.

Good point Bea. I'm always careful about wetting her head. (scared of ear infections and such)
Just start small and then you can spray their belly a little , their back..etc..

I do the exact same thing :D Ollie likes to stay on the shampoo rack so I just splash little bits of water on him :p

Well i missed this thread. Yes i take mine to sometimes. I havn't taken them for one in a while now though because its hard because they have no were to perch. Maybe i'll try tonight. Maybe i'll get some more wet tiel pics.
how about on top of the shower curtain rod, mine like to go there as well :)

I've seen shampoo racks that suction cup to the shower walls. That would make a great bird perch if you don't want to pay the crazy prices for an actual shower perch.

That's a good idea. Those prices are crazy. Mine perches on the towel rack right outside the shower and I bring her in whenever she wants.
