Bathe A Cat – What Have You To Loose
(fingers… toes… eyes …)
Although I consider myself reasonably brave, the thought of trying to get one of our cats anywhere near a bath has next to no appeal whatsoever!
So when I came across a blog titled:
How to bathe your cat
I just had to pop along and see exactly how the person suggests you go about bathing a cat. Do they suggest a suite of armour? Or perhaps a tranquilliser gun?
Chris Carson of the Phoenix Examiner suggests two methods.
The first method is to use Baking Powder. And it requires that you rub liberal amounts of Baking Powder on your kitty and pop them in the oven … no .. wait! She actually suggest you cover them in Baking Powder and then just comb it out.
I am not sure how much your cat will like Baking Powder showers, but I am picking I have more of a chance with that method than getting ours anywhere near water.
Method two – speaking of water.
Chris actually suggests a 9 step method of bathing your cat with water. It all sounds perfectly harmless – at least it does until you get to step 9.
Use the hydrogen peroxide to treat the cat scratch and bite wounds you received during the bathing process.
Ok .. so I guess she is really pushing for the earlier mentioned Baking Powder showers rather than actually suggesting a regular dose of hydrogen peroxide for loving cat owners?
Well you be the judge .. you will find her instructions on how to bathe a cat here
