During quarantine, if you prefer to bathe your feline yourself, stay tuned to our tips for the #bathtime:
It's recommended to wear gardening gloves when bathing a cat. This way, your hands are protected from possible aggressions against you during the bath. In addition, the gloves help to maintain better control over the feline.
Place a non-slip cloth or rug on the floor so that the cat sinks its claws and can't harm itself or you. It will also prevent him from slipping easily and getting scared, which will only bring more problems at bath time.
Care must be taken so that water doesn't enter the feline's ears. For this, use ear plugs. Another tip is to use a bucket or hose to have more control when wetting the pet.
When starting the hygiene ritual, you should be calm, since your emotions during the procedure are transmitted to the cat.
You should put the cat in the bathtub very carefully. The best way to do this is with your right hand on the back of the neck and your left hand on the torso. All this keeping a certain distance from the animal, to avoid scratches. Then, slowly release the feline, with very subtle movements, on the floor of the stall or bathtub.
Let the animal get used to the surroundings before starting to bathe. This way, he will have more confidence and remain calmer.
It's recommended to use a special shampoo for the cat's coat, since each type has a specialized product. You shouldn't use shampoos for dogs or people on felines.
It's recommended to give some kind of reward to the cat after the bath. This way, he will associate the bath time as a positive experience and will be able to wash it more often. The reward can be a treat, the healthier the better 💦🐱✨❤
