There are a lot of bathing threads. Some have very good tips in them too!

This sounds very funny. Have you been able to get any pictures of this?

Those of us with show cats wash our cats before each show. I'm one of them. But I've also washed my non-show cats every few months.

Charlie loves his baths - he cries more then its over

What an odd little cat. Are you using a tight clumping litter and scooping frequently so she doesn't get the chance to roll in it?

Pretty cat you have there

I normally bathe mine before shows, but I haven't bothered for the last few. They don't mind as I've been doing it since they were young.

If you are bathing that much - you need to add a very good conditioner to the coat after shampoo cause the coat will become dry.

I bathe everyone once every 2 weeks or so, I use an organic castille soap with tea tree oil and their coats have always been in tip-top shape (never dry).

Tea tree oil isn't good for cats. It's safe for dogs and humans, but cats are much more sensitive to things like that.

pixietina - It sounds like you may be using a normal non clumping litter? While this may be cheaper to buy then the clumping (whether it be clay or organic kind), in the long run you fully changing the litter box every day will cost you more. Read through some of the past thread on litters in this section and some cheap alternatives if you wish to save a little money.
Hopefully if you get a tight clumping litter your kitty will be less inclined to roll after using it. Still that's an odd behavior... she hasn't had any dogs teaching her that one, has she?

Please, NEVER use shampoo with tea tree oil in it on cats! That's a big no-no. It can harm the cats.
