I haven't been bathing Chynna lately. But when I did I would take her into the shower with me and hold her against me and wet us both down. She didn't really like it but she tolerated it. After one loud "MEOOOW!!!!!" she would bury her head under my chin and let me get on with it, LOL
I used Baby Shampoo and made sure I rinsed her really well and then I used just a little of the cream rinse I used on my hair for her and made sure I rinsed really well. When I thought I was done rinsing, I rinsed more and more. She smelled so good and was so soft and fluffy when she dried
Some have said that human shampoo isn't good for cats, but I didn't bath my cat often enough for it to cause any problems, if there were going to be any problems. I showered her a few times a year.
Now Abby on the other hand has never had a bath. I think I would need one of those special cat washing boxes for her. She's not gung ho about being held unless she initiates it and I think she would be very very upset with me if I got her soaking wet, hehe
