How To Bathe a Cat in the Right Way


preparation is key to making this

experience as stress-free as possible

for your cat firstly prepare the area

obviously a bathtub is a good place to

bathe your cat but small cats or kittens

may feel more secure if they're bathed

in a sink

you will need towels cat shampoo and a

cup or handheld showerhead for rinsing

and in some cases a suit of armor brush

your cat before washing this removes

dust and other particles plus loosens

tangles which is especially important if

you have a long-haired cat wet tangles

are much worse to comb out than dry ones

and mats

trap soapy residue next to their skin

causing irritation so it's definitely a

good idea to remove these first you can

also take this opportunity to clip your

cat's nails this way you're less likely

to get scratched and your cat will get

their nails caught which would only

increase their bath time distress I like

to play with my cats before any

stressful events such as taking them to

the vet I play with them actively to get

rid of some of their energy and then

give them a few cat treats or feed them

so they're as relaxed and content as

possible

you should also run the bath water

before you put the cat in the bath the

water should be around 4 to 6 inches

deep so it reaches the cat's underbelly

and make sure the waters not too hot and

not too cold then place the towel in the

tub this will give the castle fit to

grip on when it gets nervous ok so now

you're ready probably all we need now is

a cat closing the door to the bathroom

will prevent any escapes then place your

cat in the tub or sink while talking to

them in Subang encouraging tones you'll

more than likely have to hold your cat

at this point and if you have an extra

human available enlist their help

gently wet the cat from neck to tail

using the cup or shower head then add

the shampoo and work in the same

direction starting at the neck and then

working back remember their chest belly

legs and paws all need attention - and

you can use a damp washcloth to clean

their face now it's time to rinse and

rinse and rinse rinsing is the most

important part of the process especially

if your cat has a long coat keep rinsing

until all the soap is completely gone

any leftover residue

will irritate your caps skin after your

cat is completely annoyed I mean

completely rinsed it's time to get them

dry towel dry them from head to pour

using the towels to absorb as much water

as possible the more water you soak up

the less wet you and your surroundings

will get when your cat starts to shake

if you have a hair dryer you can set

this on the lowest temperature and use

it to speed up the drying process if it

doesn't scare your cat and remember to

have the room temperature at a

comfortable level as well the end result

should be a nice clean fluffy cat you

will now have to spend the next two

months trying to win back their

affection
