Allow yourself plenty of time
on 17 July 2014
I started bathing my cat simply because she wasn't washing herself as well as she used to, and was getting to look a bit grubby. I didn't think she would appreciate the noise of water draining down the plug hole (so I could use fresh water to rinse her), so I started bathing her with plain water. But once she allowed me to use the shower head to wet her down, that was no longer a problem. I purchased this particular shampoo, as she's had periods of dry itchy skin, and oatmeal is meant to be great for that problem. Well, she wasn't keen, but we got there in the end. Using the shampoo (as well as the extra rinsing) really soaks the fur, much more so than just using water, and it took an age for her to dry - she wouldn't lie in front the fire - so next time it's back to using the hairdryer. I thought the shampoo was lovely. It smells divine, lathers really well, and you don't need to use too much if it - just as well given the price. You just have to keep rinsing and rinsing for ages to make sure you remove all of the residue - which can be tricky when you're trying to hold on to the cat and the shower head. In conclusion I will continue to use the shampoo, but not every time I bathe her - it just takes too long.
