Healthy skin and coat are important to your cat’s well-being. However, most of us skip this procedure, since cats can become aggressive or irritated when you try to bathe them. w often should I give my cat a bath
If you start bathing your kitty from a small age then there are many chances that it will start enjoying it. Plus, getting your cat into a regular grooming routine can help ease the stress and tension. Most cats take care of their hair by themselves with all that licking, but this will not remove smells, and mats, or eliminate dandruff.
How Often Should You Bathe Your Cat
How often you need to bath your cat may vary and depends on the following factors:
Outdoor kitties and cats need to take baths more frequently than indoor felines.
Coat type and length.
Longer coats will require more care and maintenance than short-coat cats.
Especially overweighted cats cannot reach all areas of their body easily and they need to bath more frequently. the back side of these kitties often becomes matted and the skin can become itchy, flaky, or even infected.
Cats that are highly active and love to run, climb or hunt, will require more frequent bathing, than kitties that enjoy relaxing and sleeping.
Felines that face issues like skin irritation or flea infestation may require more attention and fur care.
According to research, cats need to get a bath and blow dry every 4-6 weeks to keep their furs from getting matted, pelted, and free of infections.
