How often do you bathe a cat? I was reading other threads and it seems a regular occurance. My kitty is totallly indoors and only gets a wash if he gets himself into something. That tends to be with a wash cloth (he has his own with his name on it :oops: ) He doesn't smell catty but should I be bathing him regularly? He will come into the shower with me every now and again so is that ok?

I'm not sure if there is a set "cat bathing schedule" you should go by unless your specific cat has coat/skin needs that need to be met.
I think how often you bathe your cat is going to be an individual thing. It sounds like you have a bathing system down that works well for you.

My older, short haired orange tabby cat very seldom gets a bath, which is good cuz he HATES baths. I tend to just "wipe" him, similarly to what it sounds you do.
My 10 month old doll-faced persian gets an in-the-sink, sopping wet full fledged bath every 3 months or so, cuz his very long (7 inch long) fur tends to get into something about that frequently, plus it removes excess dead hair/oil from his fur. Luckily Windslow doesn't get rattled by baths.
Both of my cats are indoor cats too, by the way.

Its funny this came up, because out of the blue I decided to bathe Addison last night. No real reason, but he hasn't had one for a few months and I figured it wouldn't hurt. He doesn't like it, but won't put up too much of a fight... just cries and cries.

He's so soft now! I mean he was soft before, but now he's just soooo soft and shiny :) I may start doing it more often now. Poor thing!
