One time, Teddie really needed a bath, but he has the strength of 10 men when he doesn't want any part of something. So, we put him in the shower with the door closed.
Persian or long haired cats absolutely need to be bathed. Their long and thick hair traps dust and dirt that only a good cleaning will remove.
My cat has the strongest phobia to water that I've ever encountered. I mean, he freaks out. I get professional groomer to bathe/cut his hair. The groomer actually places a soft cloth over the my cat's eyes to "calm him". He's a self professed cat whisperer. lol.
is her cat a long-hair? I assumed it wasn't, still good combing should be okay though and plenty of hairball remedy! if her cat is a long-hair, I would suggest having any kind of bath done professionally.
Yeah, she mentions that her cat is a Persian. They get everything stuck in their hair. It's crazy. When my kitty eats he kinda just smashes his flat face down on his food. He's forever getting food on his beard and hair. It's quite funny. But yes, he cleans himself a lot. I like to get him bathed because I don't want him to get sick from licking all the dust and dirt that collects in his long hair.
ooh. my bad. I gotta slow down when I read these posts!
and I assume you give your cat hairball prevention?
I'm pretty new to the whole cat thing. My 1 year old is my first cat. He's only hacked up a hairball twice so far. What sort of prevention can I give him?
