hello yes you can give your kitty a bath. dont use much water, use a tear free baby shampoo,rinse well... my kitty always liked taking his bath. he would watch me taking my bath and then one day he decided to get in with me. so my cute baby would sit on my belly in the tub until i made him move. I did get scratched a few times when he thought he was falling off and into the water, he made bathtime fun i miss him

While they are young it is easier to bathe them, though I wouldn't try it once they are adults. Consult a vet to see what kind of pet shampoo you could use.

Yes, you can give a kitten a bath. Use lukewarm water and baby shampoo. I had a kitten I used to bathe and even after he was grown he would let me bathe him without a fight. Hold them in the palm of your hand and wrap your fingers around their chest and legs. They may fuss a little but it won't hurt them. Be sure to rinse the shampoo out thoroughly and dry them off well so they don't get chilled.
