Cats are generally very good at grooming and keeping themselves clean. If you need to bath your cat for example a flea bath, good luck! But seriously, you can use a treated pet shampoo available at most pet stores.
Tools & chemical:
cat shampoo or medicated flea shampoo, lots of towels and a friend to help.
Try bathing your cat in the kitchen sink, or if that doesn’t work, get right into the bathtub with your cat in your lap – be sure you are wearing long pants and sleeves if your cat is likely to claw you!
Note: A smelly cat or dog may indicate that your pet has a health problem. See your vet.
While cats do a good job of grooming themselves there are good reasons for you to groom your cat.
1. Brushing sitmulates new hair growth and removes dead hair.
2. If your cat swallowing to much hair when grooming themselves they can get hairballs, which can be a health concern if the hairball becomes impacted in the intestine.
So brushing your cat frequently with a brush or grooming mitt will reduce the amount of hair your cat will consume.
Tools for grooming:
For short or medium hair use a flea comb and a slicker brush,fine tooth comb or grooming glove. For long haired cats use a pin brush or fine toothed comb and a detangling spray.
