Do your furry baby really need baths?
There is probably something wrong with the world when someone proposes brushing a cat’s teeth or bathing a cat, right?
For most cats, it’s even completely okay never to bathe them, though as mentioned, bathing a cat does provide several benefits.
It will make him cleaner.
Licking its own fur helps a cat to get rid of dead hair, dirt, parasites and food leftovers, which helps a lot with survival in the wild. But this does not make the cat human-standard clean. When it comes to having the cat sleeping on your white pillow, then occasionally bathing your cat will give you an obvious advantage.
It can reduce shedding of fur.
Showering your cat will rinse the dead hair away, so there will be less to shed on your mattress. Shedding can also be greatly reduced by brushing your cat.
It can make its coat shinier and healthier.
And if you use a shampoo and coat conditioner of natural origin, it will also make your cat’s coat and skin healthier. Dandruff will be reduced, and if washing is accompanied by regular brushing, your cat’s coat will also be mat-free.
It can help to stop fleas
If your cat already has fleas, it is highly recommended that you bathe her using a flea-control shampoo. You can find this in a veterinary clinic, where you will also be able to discuss other possibilities to get rid of those tiny pests.
Many cats, especially those with short coats, are good self-groomers and rarely require bathing. However, a bath is appropriate whenever you want your feline friend to be clean and smell fresh. Once a week, would do, it all depends on you and your cat.
Be careful on using too many products on your cat, they can develop allergies to some ingredients in a shampoo. Always make sure your furry friend is getting the best and eco-friendly products like Eco Pussy Cat's eco-friendly cat bowls.
