Some important points before the bath:
– Towel for subsequent drying
-The water is ready and at its correct temperature (neither too cold nor too hot).
It is advisable before you start the bath to cut the nails to the cat to avoid major problems (it is very common for the cat to want to escape and grab us (what more and what less if you can sneak off).
It is also very important to give a good brushing before bathing and make sure that you go to the shower without any knot in your hair (if there is one not only would not be removed but it entangles the hair and would get bigger).
We have to monitor well the temperature of the bathing area, generally the bathroom, that the area is not too cold since the cat can cool us down; If so, and a little before starting the bath we can light a small heater. Once everything is ready, I will explain the steps of the bath below:
Apply degreaser (optional)
In the specialized market there are products dedicated exclusively to eliminate this greasy aspect of the hair, which makes the hair more clean and silky. Used especially by the exhibitors and applied to cats that are going to leave the exhibition. It is not necessary to apply always, but it is advisable to use it occasionally.
When the cat is well wet we apply the degreaser (it is recommended to dilute 50% of the product in water, thus obtaining a greater penetration in all the hair) and we distribute it well throughout your body applying a gentle massage.
