Do Cats Bathe?
Contrary to popular belief, cats do indeed bathe. Although, not all kitties are thrilled by the experience. It is better to start bathing them while they are young so that they get used to it.
Normally, cats do not emit any foul odor but sometimes their fur do get dusty. There are plenty of mild shampoo available in the market. For my kitties, I bathe them once a week during the hot months and only as needed during the rainy season. They have different personalities. Some just sit down, others struggle and for this I would need an assistant. I have one who really enjoys the experience, she even plays with the water.
I have heard people blame cats for causing asthma attacks. Well, I have asthma and they seldom trigger any attacks. The secret is just keeping them clean.
