Question

How do I get my cat to stay in the bath long enough to shampoo & condition her? She hates baths, but she needs something to help dry skin & shedding.

How do I get my cat to stay in the bath long enough to shampoo & condition her? She hates baths, but she needs something to help dry skin & shedding. I think I have allergies to her hair or dander, and I really want to try to get my cat to calm down and behave in the bath. I try to keep the water running low so it doesn't scare her and she can rinse, and I don't lock the drain on the tub so the water doesn't come past her knees. I've even been using lavender baby shampoo cause I thought the scent may calm her. She doesn't like me putting her in the tub, but when I'm out of the shower, she hops in when I'm not looking and gets her head and paws wet. I don't get it.

Mine also enjoys hopping into the post-used shower & tub, and dunking paws into clean-toilets or her water bowl - she just tolerates getting her own water bath.

What I've found living w/ 6 cats over the course of 27 years is: get a partner to help. If you don't have a sink that is positioned at a good height/size for bathing, get into your tub (with stool for you to sit on if needed) & keep hands-on contact with your kitty. Let your partner help maneuver/hand you things such as the water hose, shampoo, etc.

I've also found that a shower-hose is *essential* to successful kitty bathing. You can do the cup-wetting method, but it's longer especially for a thorough rinsing...

I've been bathing my current kitty (14y/o) since she & her bro were 10 wks old... was monthly, then less, now occasional. I can do it solo, but a buddy to help discourage her from jumping out & to hand me things helps a lot. And if Kitty hasn't been used to baths, it is that much harder.

I'd also suggest that her claws be clipped either right before, or recently (depending on how mad Kitty gets & retaliates).

I don't know if lavender has the same relaxing effect it does on humans - I've always either used a kitty-shampoo (conditioning type) or in a pinch, basic baby shampoo.

Good luck! I'm running into the situation of having to bathe my cat more often since my parents & I moved in together, and Mom is allergic to longer-haired cats.
