How Often do you Wash your Cat? - Page 2

post #31 of 48
But this is the first cat that I have ever had to bathe. Micha bathes herself often... but not very well. She is mostly an outdoor kitty, and she really gets stinky! Never had this problem with other cats. Anyways, I've bathed her twice. She doesn't like it, but she doesn't bite or scratch.

She also lets loose some really toxic farts... but that's a topic for another forum, and I know that bathe won´t do anything about that!

Hey Amber, I'd pay to see you give your big cats a bath! Just remember to clip those nails before you do

The bobcats would enjoy it, because they love water. But I don't know about Carmelo. I think I would end up being the one given the bath

My Tortie (Cosette) gets a bath once a week. I'm extremely allergic to cats.

I just adopted Savannah (my Bobcat/Bengal mix) about a week ago. She goes to the vet tomorrow to get her stitches out from being spayed, and then will be going to the groomers to get a bath on Monday. I'm not sure if she's ever had a bath before. She's 3, but she absolutely loves water. She comes running when she hears me turn on the sink and dips her head in it. She tries to get her whole body in it, but I can't let her do that with her stitches.

Both cats get an allergen reducer rubbed into their fur every other day too.

Wow, congrats on Savannah! Where are the pictures??

lol, thanks! Her pictures are on page 2 of my thread in "New Cats on the Block". I think I titled it "New Here and New to Cats". She's a marble Bengal & Bobcat. She's so pretty, I love her. She's real friendly too. Well, when the dogs aren't around her...

Here's the link:

The grey parts of her fur are really coarse. It's awesome.

No show cats, so I try not to bathe them. Stan has longer hair and questionable litterbox habits, so at least once a year he gets really stinky and he gets a quick bath. I mostly concentrate on his back end and I use Dr Bronner's baby mild soap. Then he goes into a very warm towel and gets lots of treats and lovin' for being a good boy

I have never tried to bathe Bella and I don't know if I own enough body armor to try...luckly she is a very good groomer.

I actually just picked up Savannah from the vet the other day and he said "I think the people you adopted the cat from is lying to you. She's definitely part Bengal, but all bobcat and cats mixed with any bobcat would have a stubby tail. I'm not sure what she is mixed with though." So, either way, the Bengal still explains why she would like water!

Most vets are not too familiar with all the different breeds. Manx is a breed of cat with a stubbed tail, nothing to do with a bob cat.
A genetic mutation can cause a shortened tail.

I rarely bathe my boys, 2ce a year at the most.

I guess how often you do it would depend on your ssituation, how long the hair is, and why they need to be bathed (show, mess, etc)

I have to wash Fatty's back end often, as he always has will-nots hanging off it! I usually have to shave his rear area, but I've been slacking now that I'm away at school, and just the fiance is taking care of them.

I had to give Milo a bath the day I brought him home because he was absolutely FILTHY and I couldn't stand it any longer. He didn't have fleas or anything, it just looked like he had been rolling around in dry dirt his whole life. He is supposed to be black and white, and he looked more black and tan. lol I didn't have any kitten shampoo, so I just used baby shampoo. He LOVED the bath and sat so still for me. I washed everything but his head, which was actually fairly clean (probably because his momma kept that part clean).

I had never given a cat a bath before that day though, and we've had lots of cats.
