Although they weren't too impressed, these kittens were due for a much needed wash after being left at the Sutherland Shire Animal Shelter, Taren Point, NSW.
Andrew Spicer, who volunteers at the shelter with his mum and uploaded the video to YouTube, filled us in on the details.
"The shelter has an overload of cats and far too many kittens from accidental litters from un-desexed cats mating," he said.
"It's not a common thing to bath the kittens like this, usually a damp soft towel would do the job, but sometimes they roll in their litter tray and their food and then with each other and get to the point where no damp towel is going to get rid of the smell that builds up."
The kittens were three weeks old when they arrived at the shelter with no mother and were unusually stinky.
"Being so young without a mother, a little extra care needs to be taken with them," Andrew explained.
"Luckily we have a male cat (Spencer) who has been teaching them right from wrong. We still have the kitten that gets the "close up" in the video and his name is Tippy. The others have gone back to the shelter looking for new homes. Tippy wasn't doing as well as the others so we kept him a little longer to fatten him up."
