Ringworm, motor oil, grease, diarrhea mess, pee, skunk spay, fleas, etc. I've dealt with more nasty stuff on cats then I would like.
Also some people have allergies and bathing their cats really helps. Otherwise, unless one of mine really stinks, I'm in no hurry to give myself a backache or stress the cat. Note: pick up dirty socks if your cat has a habit of rolling on them...
Past cats never really hid in a corner exactly, either they sat and dried themselves (usually on something you don't want damp cat on) or sat under the table.
Because Sho's fur is rather thick, I do my best to get him dry before letting him out of the bathroom. By that time he's fine with it and usually in a somewhat playful mood.
I have no idea what Tomas will do after, he'll likely march around complaining at me.
