I have a 20-year-old cat who desperately needs a bath. I’ve been putting it off because she is easily stressed out. Is there something I can do to make bathtime less stressful for her? Thanks in advance for your advice!

@Kimberley25: Have you tried soaping up a washcloth?

Try dry cat shampoo: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2752956′ defer=’defer
It absorbs oils and scents and falls off their fur with regular brushing and daily activities.

I agree with @MissFemmeFatale. Try using a wet/soapy cloth. This mimics the feel of being washed by another cat, which is much less stressful than putting a cat into water.

@MissFemmeFatale: I haven’t gone that route because it would involve rinsing with water, which she REALLY hates. She is really feeble and I’m scared if she “freaks out” that it could really affect her well being.
@Hyperventilate: Oh, that’s a good idea! I will look that up. Thanks 🙂
