    Why do you have to bath a cat?! Unless a skunk got him or something, this is just traumatic and pointless. Plus, the laughing camera guy is an insensitive prick.

    Poor sweetheart! It was actually VERY cooperative :-)

    Make sure the water is HOT! Kitties like it that way.
    Put a towel or rubber mat at the bottom of the tub! The cat will feel MUCH less afraid if he`s not "slipping and sliding" eh?
    Get someone else to hold kitty while you use both hands to scrub.
    Make sure to RINSE WELL!

    @carmium: They can`t clean off everything. Sometimes they can get something sticky on them that will forever matt their fur until cleaned. Or they can get something on them that smells awful.

    Like 5Cats said, it wasn`t struggling that much, so it wasn`t terrified. My Mum`s cat used to make a noise kinda like this if she shut the bedroom door at night, because she wanted attention at 3am.

    Idiots. Unless there is some reason for a bath (Flea bath, dermatitis etc.) Cats do not need a bath. It`s only weirdos that bath cats.

    Question: I heard once that bathing a cat once a week removes dried saliva off the fur, which apparently is one of the key triggers for human allergies. Has the thinking changed on this?

    Also: Props to whichever mod made the teaser pic. That`s got to be one of the funnier ones I`ve ever seen.

    Some cats do not have the self-washing instinct built in. As a result they do tend to get a bit wiffy, and have to be bathed sometimes

    "This video freaked my cat out hahaha"
    Might be because the sound in the video is "RUN AWAY!!! I`M BEING EATEN!!!"
    That`s just a guess...

    I couldn`t get by doing this to my kitty very often, she would tear my butt up so bad I would probably need stitches isn`t worth it to me, she can be a mean little witch sometimes..

    @Squrlz4: It`s true, something like 80% of allergic people can be helped by weekly cat-bathing. Not perfectly, but vastly improved. They`re allergic to something in the saliva, which gets deposited on the fun, which then sheds everywhere...

    @Nickel2: This is true! The "licking" part is instinctive, but "grooming" is learned.
    I had a kitty who thought he was a dog (at first). Another cat had to teach him many cat-like behaviors. Like proper grooming. He learned fast! Was a spotlessly clean kitty after that :-)

    If you give them baths as kittens and keep it to a once a month or quarterly schedule, they know what`s coming and don`t freak out. In fact, I don`t even have to hold one of my cats in the sink and I think he may enjoy it.

    On another note, that is one awesome pussy, and she has a cat, too.

    Titled by someone who has never had a cat freak out on them. I`ve had cats (and helped clean friend`s cast) where, if you weren`t in full plate armor, you`d be bloody by the time it was over. This cat just yowled, it didn`t go for flesh.

    I think Kitty just wanted them to scrub that f*cking tub before sticking her in it. Ick, nast.
