Most cat owners will agree that washing a cat can be an interesting experience, but it does not have to be an awful one for you or the cat.
First, decide where to bath the cat. A room with a door that can be closed is the best in case they get away from you.
Second, gather all of your supplies and have them close by the tub or sink area you will be bathing in. Your supplies should include pet shampoo and conditioner, a sponge or soft washcloth, two or three big, fluffy towels, a pitcher or sprayer attachment for rinsing.
Begin by wetting your cat’s coat down significantly, add shampoo to your hands and massage it into the coat. Do not wash your cat’s face just the body. Rinse well and more than once till the water runs clear. Do not leave any shampoo residue as that can irritate your cat’s skin. Apply the conditioner in the same manner again remembering to rinse well.
When you are finished, use the washcloth or sponge with just water to wash your cat’s face. Pay special attention to around the cat’s eyes. Rinse the cloth or sponge frequently throughout.
After the cat is completely rinsed off from head to tail, place them in the first towel to absorb the water. Use the remaining towels to continue to dry them off. The result – one clean cat!
