Oh no! The poor kitty! Did you laugh at him?

I am impressed though, that he apparently remained still long enough for a photo. I don't think I am brave enough to try bathing a cat.

LOL

Why did he have to be bathed? Did he have fleas or something

He does NOT look like a happy kitty in that second pic. You could send that one to www.mycathatesyou.com

I can hear his thoughts:

"Just you wait until you're asleep, human..."

He is definitely giving you the evil eye, especially in the 2nd pic. How did you get him to hold still so you could take the pictures?

Cats are so good at grooming themselves, why would you bathe him?
post #11 of 27
oh no - I agree with mom of 10 cats - his thoughts are definately.

Lady you have to sleep sometime!

Longhair cats can get a lil takky at times. I know with many persians, I bath each of my pussy-cats once a week, to keep them in tip-top condition. No cats don't need to be bathed because they have fleas. Just bathing a cat doesn't get rid of fleas.

Cute picture Tasha!, Thanks so much for sharing!

The only time I bathed Rocky was when he got something really sticky on him and his grooming didn't get it....I think it was syrup or something, but he totally HATED it!!!!!!!!
Zeus looks like he didn't even resist at all!! Cute pictures!!

We start bathing our kittens at 7 weeks of age to get them used to their life as a Persian. If you buy a persian off us, in the contract it says it must be bathed once a moth-ish

A Clean cat's a happy cat!

Zues is so good in the water! He sits in the tub and cleans his paws! I flea bathed him and put his treatment on. It's Summer and the fleas get bad. He is very good when he is held, he hardly meowed at all! I bathed him when he was 6 weeks old and he wasn't impressed, I am surprised he was so good this time!

Cute Pictures! Poor thing didn't know what hit him!

I've heard the same thing. Every book I've read on long haired cats recommends bathing them at least occassionally. And frequently if it's a show cat. Supposedly it helps get rid of dead skin and hair as well as other things.

Another thing I've read that is supposed to help get dirt out and fluff the coat is to use a mixture of 1/2 talc powder and 1/2 corn starch. It's a dry bath concept. Work it through the fur in patches, down the the skin and then brush with a natural bristle brush. Then fluff with a slicker. You can brush the little cute kitty face with a toothbrush (dry of course!)

Gosh, how did I get off on this!?!

Thank you, that's what I thought, which is why I asked if he had fleas.

Personally, unless they have fleas, a medical condition or really long hair that gets super dirty and the cat cant clean it himself, I see no reason to bathe a cat.

Zues is going to be a big kitty! His dad, Rascal, is just over a year old and is 38 inches long! He weighs 13 pounds. Rascal will grow for another year or more, he is a Maine Coon cross!

Here's Rascal, Zues' daddy!

I agree with that! I imagine if you did it too often (to a short hair) it could dry out their skin. My kitty gets brushed so much I don't think there's any chance of drying her skin out! (Plus she's a long hair Persian.) Her oil folacles get stimulated every day whether she likes it or not!

Tammie, Mommy to Peaches who has VERY long hair. And I mean VERY long!

boy you guys that bath your kitties are braver than me, i have never tryed it, my sister did and geeee it was a trip from you know where if blackie or stripey ever had to have a bath i think i would yell help from my vet
post #27 of 27
Loki dosen't needs baths besides I think I'd be in the ER if I'd try. My mom's piper (Somali) goes to the groomers every 3 months or so since she gets greasy fur over time. My mom's other cat Cookie - well, no way!!! But she is very good about cleaning herself and laways look squeeky clean.
