If there’s a kitten in your life, you’ll want to make sure its coat is clean. The best way to do that is with warm water and soap or a pet shampoo. You can use any kind of mild soap without dyes or perfumes; castile (soap made from olive oil) works the best. For older kittens, it’s important to rinse their fur gently after each bath; they don’t like getting wet and will try to scratch themselves if you’re too rough with them.
The first couple of showers should be short — about 10 minutes at most . After that, for every bath, increase the length by 5-10 minutes so as not to overstimulate their nerves and cause them distress during grooming sessions. If you see signs of discomfort such as hunched shoulders and ears flat against the head after bathing, stop immediately! They may need more time than usual before going back into their litter box because they were scared while being washed. When introducing new cats into an existing home environment , take care especially when giving your new buddy his first baths: Make sure he doesn’t get spooked by loud noises at other times as well as during this process! Give him lots of love beforehand so he wants those baths just as much as everything else in his life does!
