A step-by-step guide for washing your cat correctly. This is the fastest, safest, and most inexpensive way to wash your kitty. Cats require a bit of maintenance - mostly grooming, and every once in a while it's a good idea to give them a bath. For the longest time, we used "baby" shampoo to bathe our Siberian cat, but the results were always lackluster. With all human and cat shampoos, the results were the same. She would have dull, kind of tacky fur, and she would lick herself constantly to get rid of the smell - even the "unscented" smells. Washing a cat is a tough job, so you want your results to be worth the effort (hint - lock the door and use a sink or laundry tub if you have one.) After combing the internet for a way to naturally clean dishwashers and washing machines, I came upon an "all vinegar" site. It was amazing. I wish I still had the link to share it... Basically, vinegar is amazing and one of the uses listed was washing cats.
