Giving A Hissing Feral Kitten A Bath And This Happens… | The Dodo Faith = Restored

Yes, it would help if you bathe your cat. However, this does not mean you should schedule regular baths – it means you need to bathe your cat in situations when licking away the dirt is not enough.

Basically, the reasons for bathing cats can be classified into three groups:

  • Situational
  • Cat breed
  • Medical.

Cats can get adventurous and end up in a sticky or stinky situation. Here are some practical examples:

  • Skunk spraying – removing the smell takes thorough cleaning, and you will need to step in and help your cat
  • Trash digging – in this case, your cat can clean itself, but you do not want her ingesting all the germs and toxins from the garbage
  • Fur bugs – bathing can help remove superficial infestations with creepy pests like ticks, lice, fleas, and mites.
