Ah...I guess us Mods are interchangeable...
MY opinion is that I don't see any reason to stress out an indoor cat with regular baths. They clean themselves quite well and can be de-shedded without bathing if the right tools are used.
Never use a human dryer on a cat or dog. When cats are stressed they can spike a temperature (Misty had a stress temp of over 104 at her first vet visit). A temp over 106 can cause brain damage. Human hair dryers can reach 130 degrees...it would be very easy to over heat a cat, especially a long haired cat using a human dryer even on low.
Pet dryers basically just throw slightly warmed air at a very high velocity. The air blown is barely warmed (I know from experience...I have to hold Jake when he gets groomed cause he's a little wussy dog). High velocity dryers are not quiet (which is why Jake needs to be comforted by me while being dried).
The whole thing seems like a whole lot of angst for the cat and no benefit for the cat, just the human.
