Default Are baby wipes ok??

Another kitten question I have...since my new little addition that I've chosen to name Romeo came from the shelter, he's really dirty. He just got neutered two days ago so he cannot have a bath for about ten days to two weeks. I was thinking that either baby wipes or those pet wipes would be ok for the time being. Is this ok?

I'd be interested to hear people's opinions on the pet wipes...I've wanted to try them for some time now.

Ive never used baby wipes, but when vienna was heavily pregnant- close ot birth the started to lack caring for herself, and was a bit smelly, and afterwards becuase she was looking after them she was too. I use simple solution cat wips, smell lovely and did a good job. You just clean the cat down with them, no need to dry off afterwards. But if its particularly cold it may be a good idea to.

Are those types of cat wipes just at petco places or can they be found at the grocery store?

I've never looked for catwipes at the grocery store. If you've got a Wal-Mart or something you can find them in the pet department.

I like them, I use it when their paws get stinky.

I use the cat wipes and I love the way they make my kitties smell! I think it's great for in between baths.

There might not be much of a difference between either baby wipes or pet wipes and it may not even matter. Just check the label on the wipes and compare. I think the baby wipes may end up being cheaper so check this too. I don't see a problem with using wipes. I do thinks it's important to keep that area clean.

Hmm...don't think I would use baby wipes. Babies don't lick themselves! A cat would ingest anything you put on the coat. Better stick with pet wipes.

Cheers,
