How To Give a Cat a Bath.. EASILY! { Video }

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I thought I would take a few minutes to explain how I bathe kitty cats. I know this is a daunting task for many.. but it doesn't have to be hard. Just start as early as you can.. I like to give first baths around 8 weeks and then monthly after that. The sooner you get them use to it, the easier it will be. The video below has more helpful tips to make the process as easy as possible!

It’s much easier to wash your cat in a kitchen or bathroom sink than bending over a tub. Following is a step-by-step procedure for the quick and painless cat bath:
  • Fill the sink with about 2 or 3 inches of warm (but not hot!) water
  • Wet the cat from the shoulders to the tail and apply shampoo.
  • Just like your own hair, lather and rinse thoroughly
  • Since most cats hate having water splashed on their faces, use a damp washcloth to gently clean your cat’s head.
  • Use a cotton ball to clean inside the cat’s ears. Never put any kind of object (not even a Q-Tip) in your cat’s ear.
  • After a thorough rinsing, lift your cat onto a large towel and fold it around him.
  • Rub as much water from their fur as possible
  • Long-haired cats may require the use of a blow dryer, but only if the noise does not terrify them. Set it on low and see if the cat will tolerate it.
It’s best if you have the time to purchase a shampoo specifically formulated for cats. If you don’t have any cat shampoo, a mild baby shampoo may be used. You don’t want to use any other kinds of human cleaning products, as it may sting your cat’s eyes or irritate their skin.
