absolutely horrible! Shameful! poor cats. wicked owners! everyone knows cats clean themselves and they're cleaner than humans. why do that to a cat? i have 3. they've never been bathed in their lives. they sleep in my bed. eat on my table. they are CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN! where is 'animal rights' when you want it?

robin says he doesn't want to put a comment. he thinks they're 'mad americans who want to wash cats. in england we like our cats dirty, as nature intended.'

sometimes you have to wash them if they got into the trash and are covered in smelliness. it can be bad sometimes. usually though, its fine. you should only wash them on rare ocassionss, and never put them in a tub! thats cruel.

It's precisely because they clean themselves that you sometimes have to wash them--if they get something on their fur that isn't safe or healthy for them to ingest, for example. More of a problem for cats that go outdoors, but occasionally can happen in the best of circumstances... Also flea dips, etc, or if a cat gets sick and can't/won't clean itself properly.

Are you serious? cats are not that clean just because they lick themselves. Ok yes they are cleaner than dogs, and yes they look clean but there is all sorts of dirt that licking does not get out. as for bathing cats being cruel... it isnt! thats like saying bathing a child who doesn't want to take a bath is cruel just because they don't like it. it's an issue that they should get over, bathe your cats often people. I know I do! o hilarious pictures btw

You shouldn't really bath cats unless they have something wrong with them like major fleas or something. It's kind of traumatic for the poor dears. The evidence speaks for itself. :)

ROFL Brilliant pictures. If I didn't fear for my life whilst bathing our tomcat I'd do it myself......

not to mention that cats ears are prone to ear infections if the ears are not dried properly.
I bet no one has tried dealing with a cat's ear infection - well it SUX.

all you guys stop bitching it doesent hurt the cats its not like they where put in a microwave. Sometimes they smell like shit and you have to clean them think about it they put there paws in their shit, then lick there paws people yell at dogs for licking their balls but no one yells cats for licking its shit. Plus i dont think animal rights is going to take someone's cat because they washed it.I thought i was funny can't wait to put my cat in a bath.
Maybe you should bitch about something more important the lack of money for the vetrins not about a clean pussy. :o)

I've been washing my kitty, Franc, since she was teeny. She doesn't really mind it, she just mills around the tub and whines a little, but she puts up with it. Especially in the summer, she would rather be wet than hot. And just for all you crazy animal fanatics, I shave her in the summer too, and she loves it!

I have thought of bathing my Maine Coon. He has particularly oily fur and dandruff, which is common for his breed. I know people who go to cat shows with Maine Coons often wash them just before shows for this very reason. Still, he has an affection for water which I don't want to risk taking away by a bath so I just put up with the oiliness. If it gets worse, I may try the bath someday. Not out of meanness, though.
