Introduction:for cat lovers, girlfriends or boyfriends of cat lovers, parents of children who only want to play with their cat and not take care of it - this is for you!
Make sure your feline friend is able to stand comfortably on all fours in a bathtub, sink or bucket. Fill it until the water level reaches their belly. This can be done before or after the cat is already in the tub. If they are calmer, let them walk around a couple steps to have the feeling of more control.
Get an old plastic cup from who knows where to scoop the water on to the cat as you bathe him or her. This helps tremendously in wetting long fur as well as makes the process go more quickly.
Keep the temperature of the room above normal if possible and make sure the water is warm enough after the cold porcelain or plastic tub is full. Don't want any needless muscle shaking.
Tell your animal that everything will be ok. They know your voice and it will keep them calm and even purring as you massage the soap into their scalp.
The tag team method is the fastest, with one person holding and the other lathering and rinsing. Wrap them up in a towel and gently dry their face and neck in the same way they would lick themselves and you will have a purr storm in no time!
