My poor Chester!!!

Last night my fiance' took a shower, and our tub doesn't drain so well, so the tub is usually half full by the time he gets out.

We were sitting in the living room, and all of a sudden we hear a HUGE splash, followed by a bunch of banging noises!

We go running into the bathroom, and there is Chester swimming for his life in the bathtub We were trying SO hard not to laugh, but my poor baby just looked SOOOO funny.

So we got him out, and wrapped him in a towel... poor thing.... so we are calling a plummer today to see what he can do about the drain.

Denim...ask the plumber about a product called "Clugs" it might be spelled "Klugz" Something along that lines. You can only buy it at plumbing supply stores and it works unreal!

Poor Chester!

Try to use the clog removers that you can buy from the grocery store before you call a plumber.

First time I read your post, thought you meant you started calling Chester "Plummer"

but just to let you know, if you DO use these clog removers then have to call a plumber, DO tell the plumber that you used them!! My boyfriends from a family of plumbers, and they can tell you all kinds of stories about being burned by the stuff because people didn't tell them it was in there. Some of that stuff is really corrosive (of course that's how it works!) So just be curtious and give the plumber a heads up!!

Plunging the bathtub will really help in the short term. (possibly long term too.. depending on your clog).

Elly used hop in the shower with me when she was a kitten. I miss that.

Haha nope, the water is flowing freely now.

The plumber said he snaked it or something like that ?? Anyway, he pulled out a child's building block, and enough hair to make a coat out of LOL

Oh, the reason I called a plumber rather than using the at home stuff, is because the apartment manager has a plumber on call, and I don't have to pay for it

EeeeeeeeeeeeWWWWwwwwwwwwwwwwiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee!
I am glad it is fixed.....once one of my kids tried to flush some sort of toy down the toilet and we had to take the toilet all off completely!
It was DISGUSTING! Of course I was the one nominated to stick my hand inside the now upside down toilet to get the toy.
Hubby's hands were too big! LOL!
