I don't dare give him a bath with water cuz he wasn't raised taking baths and I don't want to get tore up. Is there any advice on how to quickly mosturize his skin other than changing diet or givng him oil? I'm already giving him oil but I'm definately not using that bath crud anymore.
Well, I'm no authority on the subject, as I always trust my Nine to self-clean, and they do an excellent job; I don't think the dry shampoos are good for much, especially on cats with dry skin. An oatmeal-based shampoo would probably be soothing, but if you don't want to use a wet shampoo, sorry, I can't be of any help except to suggest brushing and flea-combing him until all the dry shampoo is out of his coat (this will take several sessions, probably) and then, making sure you feed him high-quality food only, and make sure he has plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times. Time will probably be the healer here. Some cats, though, just tend toward having a little dry skin, just like some humans.
