Let's be clear from the outset, cats hate baths so if you embark on this decision remember it isn't for the fainthearted. I know this from personal experience after a particularly awful occasion when I had no choice but to bath a flea infested cat. She was a feisty cat anyway but she really let me have it when it came to a bath. Naively I thought the best place to do it was the shower cubicle, a place I could close the door on her to prevent escape. Of course I knew I would get wet so undressed with a bucket of medicated water I attempted to bath Cleo. To say she was angry would be an understatement. She threw out all claws in my direction and hooked into the skin around my knee with determined ferocity. Bleeding and in considerable pain I decided this was not a good idea and withdrew to consider Plan B.
