Pick a small, enclosed space like a sink or shower stall to contain a wet, scared cat.

Prepare the Space

Use Lukewarm Water

Keep one hand wrapped around your cat's torso to stop squirming and scratching.

Hold Your Cat Securely 

Gently wet and lather up your cat's coat using a washcloth instead of pouring water.

Use a Washcloth

Give treats and praise during the bath to positively reinforce good behavior.

Reward Cooperation

Ensure all soap residue is fully rinsed off to prevent skin irritation and licking.

Rinse Thoroughly
