Do I Need to Bathe My Cat?

Do I Need To Bathe My Cat?

Our pets are our family. We feed them the best food and spoil them at every opportunity. In this day and age, fur babies are a real thing. We even allow our pets to snuggle in bed with us as if they were our children. 

Imagine snuggling up to your cat after a long day. You are tired, enjoyed a nice meal, and all that remains on your to-do list is to leisurely sip a glass of wine as you cuddle Sprinkles and binge The Great British Bake Off. 

Suddenly, your relaxing evening is interrupted by an indescribable stench.

You know you took a shower today, so what could that overwhelming aroma be? 

You realize it’s sweet Sprinkles, adorable but smelly.

You wonder: When is the last time Sprinkles had a bath?

It might not be something you think about often, but cats need quality time with soap and water once in a while.

To Bathe or Not to Bathe?

The average person doesn’t have time to wrangle their cat into the bathtub and hold them down with the jaws of life to bathe them. 

It’s well known that cats hate water. 

You can only imagine the scenario which would include one soggy, disgruntled cat and an exhausted cat owner, covered in scratches.

After one failed attempt, you may not even want to try again. 

Maybe even imagining how this sudsy showdown could unravel could scare you enough not to try at all. Even if you were to do so, you could groom them improperly.

Cats are very self-sufficient and self-clean daily. 

That is good news. It means no need to bathe your cat frequently. 

However, if you notice that your cat is visibly dirty or seriously stinky, it may be time to give them a good scrub.
