Do you have a fireplace? My cats love to lay in front of a fireplace, and it would probably help them dry out faster. My cats would hate a regular drying like we use on our human hair.

I had no idea. I tried to blow dry my first cat after the first time I gave her a bath (clearly long before I joined this forum). The minute I turned it on, she bolted. I don't know if it's the air or the noise, or both.

The couple of times I had to bathe Celia (she'd peed on herself), I tried to dry her with a towel, but she was so freaked out from the bath that she kept wriggling to get away, so I gave up and let her slink off to lick herself dry. I suppose she got plenty of fluids those days.

Don't cats have oils in their skin that dry out if kitty's bathed too often?

Taco seems perfectly content to let me blow dry him on his back and sides. His vet said that because he's so young we should bathe him once a week or so to get him used to the idea and make our lives easier in the future. Also, he keeps getting into situations to need one the little stinker.

once a week is far too often to bathe a cat, especially if there's no reason

idk, it's what my vet told me to do. But we have only done it on an as needed basis, which has been more frequently than I'd like. He keeps getting poo all over himself. Plus the vomiting incident in the car last week. Hopefully soon he'll have better potty manners and we can keep getting more space between baths.

For now though, it is what it is. We get him all wrapped up in a towel, I set my hair dryer to no heat, low flow and lay it on the counter then stand away from it holding him and rubbing him with the towel. It's about similar to standing near a fan, only we don't own a fan. It does a fine job of getting a head start on getting him dry. After that we just snuggle together in a blankie til he's warm and all the way dry.

Our boys don't like a bath, but will (barely) tolerate it. We usually just use towels and let them lick themselves dry. We did try the hairdryer once, and even though it was reasonably quiet I think the phantom air freaked them out. They don't have a problem sitting in the bathroom when I dry my hair so I don't think it's the noise.

I think towel drying and then letting them do their thing is the best way, and avoid bathing at cooler times of the day (e.g. before nightfall).
