Should You Wash Your Cat?

Dr Melissa Meehan explains why cats don't need baths...


If you asked your kitties, they would probably swear at you if you suggested that they should be washed. Cats are more than happy to wash themselves. If you've ever look at a cat, they are constantly grooming themselves. That is why they have that rough big tongue, so they can do a good job of it.

So you really never, ever have to wash your cat - unless of course you find out that they love it. There are some breeds of cat, like the Turkish Van, that love swimming so they love to get in the shower.
