I have to him a bowl to his toilet for putting his poes inside and playing with water!And in the bathroom i have a small bathtab filled with water from where he drinks water!
Now following the next steps will help you make this situation more comfortable for you and your kitty!
First of all you must have towels near you ,sponge and shampoo.Then
- Fill with a short amount of water your bathtab
- Put in the bottom a towel, so the kitty not to slip
- Put inside bathtab a toy, like a plastic duck to atrract his attention
- Call the kitty to come in the bathroom and when he comes throw a toy in the bath.Probably he will go see what happened and soon go in bathtab to catch it.This is your chance!!
Wash him quickly!
- Then dry him a little with a towel and let him go.He will start licking his body.
- As this process is over reward the kitty with food ,toys.
- Finally you should brush him with a special comb,so the combings("dead hair") to go away.
When i put jimmy in the bathtab he hates it!He starts mowing and scratching!
But if i am taking a bath , he comes inside with me to take a bath.I wash him without any problem as he waits near me for water amd me to end my bath!He is unbelievable!!
If you think it well,this is absolutely logical!How will you react if somebody grabbed you for washing you?I am sure that you want to have a bath,only when you want!!
My last advices to you
- If it's yours cat first bath put gloves,as you do not know yet how he will react and certainly we don't want scratches all over our hands!!
- Reward your cat before and after taking a bath.Before with hugs and after with food.
