Giving Your Cat a Bath
Some cat owners shy away from giving their cats a bath because they know that they “hate water”, and are afraid that it would be too traumatic for their pet. Also, they know that cats “bathe themselves”, and are under the misconception that they do not need baths. However, they do need baths to help them stay clean and looking their best, and it does not hurt them at all.
Make sure that the water temperature is closely matched to the temperature of the cat, and keep the temperature constant. It should feel neither warm nor cool to them.
Be sure to avoid getting water on their face or in their ears.
If your cat goes crazy and tries to run, get some help. Have another person hold your kitty by grabbing it around the shoulders while it is standing in the tub, letting you do the shampooing. Use specially-made cat shampoo which is available
