HOW TO BATHE A SCOTTISH CAT AND A CAT
Step # 1. TO PREPARE THE CAT MORAL
Typically, this step is skipped. But still we recommend to pay attention to this, because the mood of the cat is very important for his health. The first thing you can do to calm the cat before bathing, give it soothing drops.
However, we do not recommend doing this the first time, because who knows, maybe your cat will treat this procedure with understanding. During and after bathing, do not yell at the cat. She’s already tense, and you’re gonna add your screams to that. Whatever happens, try to calm the animal.
Step # 2. SELECT SHAMPOO
On the skin of the cat under the coat is a protective layer that is destroyed by water and shampoos. Therefore, the choice of detergent should be approached carefully: pick it up on the color of wool and structure. Wash a cat soap or human shampoo cannot be!
Step # 3. COMB THE CAT
If the cat is long-haired, it should be calculated before swimming.
Step # 4. SELECT THE TEMPERATURE AND WATER PRESSURE
Cats like warm, but not hot water. As for the water pressure, it should not be too strong, as it can create additional stress for the cat and contribute to splashing water. Also pay attention to what your pet more afraid — shower or faucet, and use that less getting on his nerves.
Step # 5. MY CAT
Before bathing, read the instructions for use of your shampoo. But there are exceptions. The most important thing-in the end, wash off the foam is very good, because any shampoo-it’s chemistry and you need to not let your cat get drunk.
Other thing. You don’t need to wash the cat’s head!!!
You should try to make sure the water doesn’t get into the cat’s ears. If you doubt your abilities, it is better during the passage close to the ear to move the cat on cotton wool.
