Gremlins DO EXIST!

NEVER get a cat wet.... You have been warned.

Alex after a bath. The transformation is quite scary!

What a great picture! Why would you bathe a cat? I only did that if my cat got into it with a skunk.

Well, a couple of reasons.

First, he's a young cat and I can teach him not to be afraid of a bath at this age so I don't have to fight him later in life if he needs a bath.

Second, he was dirty!!

I use a moisturizing soap, towel dry, then put on a coat conditioner we use on horses. Works great.

My wife just couldn't stop laughing when she saw this picture and put it as her phone background picture. I thought, if it made her laugh, maybe others might like it too.

I agree, cats don't generally need a bath unless there's a specific reason. Charlee has never had one, Cali has had one bath, and Cleo hasn't needed one in years.

So giving my girls baths to get them "used" to baths would only have been unnecessary stress on them.

What a funny picture!
I caution using products that are no designed for cats. The conditioner may be great for a horse but a horse doesn't groom itself. The cat is going to be ingesting that stuff.

Not trying to start a big discussion on whether cats should be bathed or not. Just wanted to share the picture.

I bathe mine when I feel they are dirty etc as well. They're fine. Oreo is due for a bath later actually. Great pic.

Just sharing that it's not necessary to stress out your cat for a bath they might need someday.
