    Never tried it - cats have longer nails than I do! Only had cats when I was a kid living in the country and they were outdoor cats. Wouldn't have dreamed of trying to bathe them!

    beautiful kitties! I am a pet bather and dryer, my SIL has a very successful grooming business...we have 1 cat that comes and it looks just like yours! She sounds about the same, bathes very well, not too keen on drying but will tolerate it. We go very slow with her and keep her crated while doing it..she can get on the table, but if we have a lot of dogs in there it makes her nervous, so we towel around the crate so she can't see them and just take our time, I think it's harder on us physically, than it is on her! We care for them very fondly. Your kitties are beautiful! Good luck at the show! Look like blue ribbons to me!

    I used to wash my cats - back before they have the nice, convenient flea medicines. What worked best was to do it in the basement. Fill both tubs with cat-body-temperature water, soap up in one and then you can quickly transfer to the rinse tub. I found there was less fighting if the water was the right temperature.

    A wet cat always looks so puny and sad, though!

    The only bath Mr. Bean ever got was when he jumped into the toilet.

    Yours sure are beautiful and so fluffy.

    When I was a kid, we lived next door the the lady who began the breed. I got to take care of the kitties several times. They are amazing.
    Yours are so beautiful. Good luck tomorrow.

    Awesome cats! My 5 cats have never been bathed. They may get a spot cleaned once in a blue moon but they do well on their own and are combed all the time. All but one are short haired. They do go out in the fenced back yard but their flea/tick/mite meds work beautifully and none of them even know what a flea is- thank goodness! I do worry that they may need one sometime and I bet it will be a huge undertaking! Good Luck at the show and let us know how they do! I love cat shows.
