Merlot is a persian and I heard that bathing her can make matting worse. We get her a lion cut twice a year to keep her comfy though. sarasonne 6 years Unless there should be some kinda big poop attack incident, NEVER. beansandsyke 6 years my 13yr old cat has had about 3 full baths and maybe two foot/butt dips... its unfun. sentineltree 6 years i think i bathed my kitty when she was a baby...but that was years ago! now shes older and an indoor cat, so she never gets dirty, she just sheds alot haha 6 years I comb and use the bath wipes pretty much every week on my girls and it does the trick. I don't think baths are ever really necessary unless they get into something icky...thankfull my kitties are indoor so that's not likely to happen. asense0fwonder 6 years never. my cat is an indoor princess. he keeps himself cleaner than do most humans! Aphrosette 6 years Well the cats get a bath rarely, but mostly b/c they are indoor/outdoor and can get super dirty sometimes. Like roll in gas or something...yuck!!! But I dated someone in HS whose mother gave the cat a bath EVERY week....literally every Sunday since the cat was a kitten.....somehow I guess it was used to it b/c it never had a fit....crazy!! sailing-chick 6 years I'm not sure if the cat is happy or about to go nuts Pistil 6 years Never tried. I can't tell if the cat in the video is stewing angrily or extremely relaxed. Chouette4u 6 years I never plan on washing my cats, but one of them has a habit of peeing or pooping in his carrier on the way home from the vet. I bathe him then. Chrstne 6 years My cat is indoor, but we like to bathe her to help with her coat shedding and keeping it nice and pristine (though she is a short haired cat) We bathe her once a season, so 4 times per year with a conditioning shampoo. We also have between bath wipes just for an extra freshening. runningesq 6 years Never - I don't have a death wish ;) My cats are all indoor, and they do a pretty good job of cleaning themselves !
