Never. 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.

Unless there should be some kinda big poop attack incident, NEVER.

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!!

I'm not sure if the cat is happy or about to go nuts

Never tried. I can't tell if the cat in the video is stewing angrily or extremely relaxed.

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.

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.

Never - I don't have a death wish ;) My cats are all indoor, and they do a pretty good job of cleaning themselves !
