How To Bathe Your Cat

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 11:45 am

It’s much easier to wash your cat in a kitchen or bathroom sink than bending over a bathtub. Following is a step-by-step procedure for the quick and painless cat bath:

  1. Fill the sink with about 2 or 3 inches of lukewarm water
  2. Wet the cat from the shoulders to the tail and apply shampoo.
  3. Just like your own hair, lather and rinse thoroughly
  4. Since most cats really hate having water splashed on their face, use a damp washcloth to gently clean your cat’s head.
  5. Use a cotton ball to clean inside the cat’s ears. Never put any kind of object in your cat’s ear.
  6. After a thorough rinsing, lift your cat onto a large towel and fold it around them.
  7. Rub as much water from their fur as possible
  8. Longhaired 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.
