Bath a Cat - The Easy Way
Cat in a Bath
Trying to bath cats is extremely hard; bathing a cat is one of the hardest things you will have to do as a cat owner. Everyone knows how much cats hate getting wet and the rumours are true. If you are trying to bath a cat and it doesn’t like it then you will be faced will one angry pet that will climb up and over you to get out of the bath. When you are bathing cats you have to be calm and confident, try not to get too flustered when things go wrong. This article will give you a couple of tips on how to survive bathing a cat. 

Things to Consider when Bathing Cats

Run the bath before you bring the cat into the room. Cats hear running water and panic; remember you are trying to make the experience as stress free as you can so don’t put the cat into the bathroom until the last minute. 
Make sure you have all the shampoos and towels in the bathroom where you can reach them. You will not be able to leave an angry wet cat in a bathroom unattended while you go off to find the right shampoo. 
Bring in Reinforcements 
It is a good idea when you bathe a cat to get a friend or family member to help you. Controlling a wet cat is difficult; having one person hold the cat and the other washing makes the whole process easier. 
If you cannot get anyone to help you bath a cat at short notice then you could always buy a lead with a suction cup on the end. You stick the cup to the bath or tiled wall and this will keep your cat in the bath while your hands are free to shampoo. 
Keep the Face Dry 
Try not to get the cat’s face wet; anything above the neck that gets very wet will really upset your cat. 
When bathing a cat make sure you lower the cat into the water gently so that you minimise splashing and panic. 
Get a Grip 
Buying a rubber mat for the bottom of the bath is a very good idea. They are cheap and give your cat a feeling of security. It is also something for your cat to stick his claws into rather than stabbing them into you.
