We don't. They seem to handle their coat well with some additional brushings and nothing more. Last time I tried bathing my Mishmish I ended up with sharp cuts
and I did get the message - she doesn't like it.

Oh my gosh no!!! I thought bathing my hedgehogs is bad enough, I can't imagine bathing my cats! But it would do me no good anyway, they would just get dirty outside again.

Everyonce in a while I give mine baths. I gave them baths before we moved to try and get rid of some of their fleas. It didn't help much because the new place had been infested. The two bigger cats didn't have much of a problem after I put on flea collars, but my baby kept getting infested. I've given him about 3 more baths and a new collar and so far so good!

I bathe for shows - some of the cats tolerate it very well others I pick up off the ceiling. I have one that loves her bathes.

Will always remeber the day I bathed this old apple head Siamese - I had to pick her off the ceiling - my shower curtains were down and she was almost hanging off the walls. Never again did she get a bath. Never !!!! Linda
