Does a Cat Ever Need a Bath?

#0131: Dr. Mikel says there’s no reason to subject your kitty (or yourself!) to a bath — they do a very good job with their own tongues! Tracie suggests wiping down a cat with a grooming glove or damp cloth to remove the sticky residue from self-grooming. Otherwise they both recommend grooming a cat “one leg at a time” — finding out the kind of brush and grooming your cat actually likes and then not trying to get their whole body (or claws) groomed in one sitting.
