if you always want to keep your cat clean? and if you will pay your attention to its clean always? I don't often give a bath to my cat very often, I only wash it when it is really dirty . but I find there are so many people will let their cat have a bath everyday. so I want to know how often you will let your cat have a bath?

Unless my cat would be incredibly dirty (so dirty that he can't clean himself by simply washing) I don't think I'd ever give him a bath. I'm not allergic to cats and he's a whizz at keeping himself clean, so I don't think there's any need.

I have only given one of my cats a bath and that was after he came home soaked head to toe in oil. I first tried to bathe him in baby shampoo but it did him no good. When I went to work the following day and said what happened one of my coworkers, who had rescued wild birds etc afte an oil spill told me he was being poisoned through his skin by the oil and I had to get to him emmiedately and bathee him in a grease remover. She told me to use dish soap. Thank god for her because when I got home I found him collapsed in the garden under a bush panting and out of it. II don't know how close he was to dying but he owed his life to my staff girl.

I never showered my cat because I read in a book that it is not necessary and because my cat dislike the water I didn't want to harass him because I love him very much.

We don't usually give our cat a bath as she stays inside and doesn't get dirty. But we did take her to get a bath at spring time as when she was shredding here winter coat it helped alot on getting all the lose hair out, and now we brush her like 3 times a week to help her from shredding. It really isn't good to wash your cat to often as they can get chilled to easy. And most cats are good at keeping themselves cleaned...

I will never put my into shower,and i will never a have a chance to do so because he don't like water at all. I would love give him a bath if he likes water.However i try to make him get use to water,what i did is wash his feet and see how he react.He reacts so agressively and struggle so hard to get away from water...I guess he just so happy with dry cleaning himself.LOL
