Bathing a dog must be given more emphasis. If your kitty does flip out, simply let her go. A frightened, distressed cat will shred or bite you to get free. You could place your cat’s favorite deal with on the alternative end of the bathtub/sink-be certain your cat notices it! Make sure you have a long hose to wet your cat fully, then lather him up, hose him down to rinse, and then proceed with drying.
If all else fails, take your cat to a good, professional pet groomer or a veterinary hospital for grooming. You must have all of your supplies laid out, a non-skid surface in place within the bottom of the sink or tub, and the water regulated at a comfortably heat temperature.
This may be especially helpful for a long-haired cat. The water must be lukewarm, not one thing that can burn or harm the cat and not something that can make it chilly. Gently place and hold your cat there while your helper uses the pitcher to get your cat’s coat wet.
Cats can pick up on stress, so in case you are fearful they will be as well and be more apt to put up a battle. This may make the water pour down too laborious and might overwhelm your cat. As a remaining step, have someone else reassure the cat when you use your hand to gently make waves in the water.

There is no want to use cleaning soap; some gentle rinsing with water and some strokes along with your hand should take away the dirt. Use a hand-held spray hose to thoroughly wet your pet, taking care not to spray instantly in her ears, eyes and nose.
