I can show Cleo but she is not show quality - Page 2

I guess I am just good or the climate is good, I don't know

I need to bathe Cleo without getting scratched.
She hates the sink.
My Russian Blue mix gets right in the sink.
Any ideas to get Cleo to like bathes.
I do not think she gave Ed any problems.

I've heard that the running water scares them, and that it's sometimes best to have the water all ready instead of running it while they are in there. Also I've heard that some don't like to be standing in the water, so just pour it over and let it run down the sink.

That said, I don't bathe my cats, only once when I had a sick cat, and that was about 30 years ago, LOL.

I just gave her a bath.
I filled the sink first then put her in it.
It worked well.
The water sure was dirty.
I had to put clean water in the sink.
I used baby shampoo.

First bath Charlie got (4 months old) was in the sink in the kitchen. You could have heard him in Canada! He hated it.

After that we wash him in the tub and he loves his baths - crys more when its over!

Some cats sure do scream.
Cleo did not say a word.
She did grab me with her front paws.
We used the bathroom sink.
I might use the kitchen sink because it has the thing you spray.
Sasha gets right in.

I do not think it would work in my shower because we just have shower curtains.
She is nice and clean now.

I can't wait to get my 2 sphynx in a couple weeks...bathing them is one of the things I'm so excited about. I don't think I can stand much more waiting, but alas, I must.

I am so glad you got Cleo bathed, I bet she smells like a newborn baby...I love that smell.

How has the ear cleaning been going?

The ear cleaning ia easy.
I use the same stuff I use for Coco.
I asked Ed and he said that is fine.
Any pics of the sphynx you are geting?

mews2much, yes I posted them in your "cleo is here" thread, they're on page 7. I haven't gotten recent ones but I'm hoping soon.

I haven't had to clean any of my cats ears because they clean each others' ears all the time, so they're always nice n pink.

I have cat ear wipes, but I know I'll be cleaning using cotton balls and swabs (but not stuck way in) and a cleanser for ears.
