Steps to Ensure Bathing a Cat Is a Success Every Time

Considering the majority of this site is dedicated to helping you bathe your cat, I figured it was about time I shared with you some tips and tricks to ensure bathing your cat is a success every time.

Bathing a cat can be a difficult task, but it doesn't have to be. You can make this process much easier on you and your pet by following the steps below.
# Step 1: Don't panic.
# Step 2: Find a suitable location for bathing your cat. This should be a place where you will not get in trouble with your parents if water gets spilled or soiled, but at the same time is easily accessible for clean up purposes.


Here’s how to go about bathing a cat, so it’s not a nightmare for either of you. Do it right, and it doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience at all. Just take care of your movements and make sure to get a read on how your cat is feeling so you know what he or she is comfortable with (or when the cat has simply had enough). Additionally, the younger you start bathing them, the more they’ll get used to it. We highly recommend implementing bathing into a kitten’s routine so they’ll grow to learn it isn’t abnormal.

You may want to trim your pet’s nails before the start of the bath.
Lay out all your supplies in advance so you don’t test the cat’s patience and have to constantly get up to grab items every time you need something from our list.
Choose a sink or tub and make sure the water is at a moderate temperature – you’ll want it warm but not scalding, and they will not be happy with water that is too cold. Use your judgement on this, try to think of what you would like if it were you or an infant in the tub. Arthritic cats might enjoy a slightly warmer bath than other cats as it can help soothe aches and pains.

Start with your pet’s head, taking extra care not to get any product into the eyes, ears, nose or mouth. Rub the cleaning agent into your cat’s coat, in slow circular motions or whatever feels comfortable and does not seem to upset your cat.
Wet down your cat from the back of the neck to the tail, avoiding sensitive areas on the head as previously mentioned, then lather. Be sure – again, if your cat permits – not to miss areas such as the belly, under the arms and legs, behind the ears, and even the tail.
