Amazing Black Cat Likes Bathing and Not Afraid of Hair Dryer. Tips on Bathing a Cat.

December 30, 2013 by Ozzi Cat Magazine in Cat Care, Cat Video

Black kitten grooming and cleaning black cat

Do cats like water? Do cats need bathing? The answer to these common cat questions in most cases is No. Are cats afraid of a hair dryer? Most likely Yes. That’s why it’s incredible to watch a cat who showing the opposite to what we are used to.

Watch a black cat relaxed while bathing and getting dry with a hair dryer afterwards. I bet you’ve never seen anything like this.

Tips on How to Bath a Cat

Here are helpful tips from the black cat’s human on how to bath a cat and how to get a cat used to bathing:

  1. Start bathing a cat when the kitty is very young
  2. Establish a bath time ritual, prepare everything beforehand: shampoo, towel, water, brush, etc
  3. Be gentle and firm handling the cat
  4. Use warm water
  5. Create a soothing bath time experience: sing a song or play music in the background

Consider before Bathing a Cat

  • Cats are awesome self-groomers. Bath a cat only when it’s absolutely necessary. Bathing removes essential oils from cat fur.
  • If you have to bath your cat, make sure that water does not get into cat’s ears. When water gets into cat’s ears it can lead to an ear infection which can end us nasty.
  • Don’t use human or dog shampoos. Use cat shampoo instead.
  • To clean dirt from cat fur, use wet hands. If it’s chilly in the room, gently dry a cat with a towel and watch the cat does not sit in a draught.
