Safe bathing techniques for kittens

It's quite understandable if your new kitten doesn't enjoy taking a bath because cats don't generally enjoy being in water.

There are steps you may take to bathe kittens safely and with the least amount of drama.

Have an individual or relative help you carry your cat.

Instead of the bathtub or shower, which can be large and unsettling to your kitten, bathe it in a sink or tiny washtub.

For kitty's safety, place a grab pad or towel in the wash basin or bathtub.

Use mild (always test on your skin first!) water.

If at all possible, gently rinse your kitty with a spray hose set to a lower flow setting.
