Bathing 101
By Lindsay Adams

Bath Time!
Make sure the cat's nails are trimmed before you begin. Start by brushing out the fur. Fill up the tub or basin with lukewarm water and place the cat inside (be gentle but firm). Wet down the cat completely (don't dunk the head!). Lather up the cat using shampoo that is specially formuated for cats (be sure to follow whatever directions are on the bottle). Completely rinse the cat making sure to remove all soapy residue. Dry out the cat's fur with a towel. Then use a stainless steel cat comb to brush out any tangles. As you blow dry, use low heat and continue to brush the cat's fur. When the cat is completely dry, you're all done!
