When we bought Salt and Pepper, we asked the shop owner how often it was advisable to bathe cats. She said once a week is usually enough for kittens. We also asked if bathing them was problematic. She said no, in fact, they were very well behaved during bath time.
It was a little hard to believe that any cat could be well behaved during bath time. From experience, my daughters almost always ended with nasty scratches on their arms as a result of bathing their cats.
But, for some reason, the Persian kittens do not seem averse to bathing. Whether it is a characteristic peculiar to Persian cats, I am not sure. Today, Salt and Pepper took their third bath since we brought them home. I did not witness the first two — it was just the girls at the time — but I was there earlier today to see Salt and Pepper get their bath. It wasn’t just to take photos. I insisted that they be bathed in a tub of lukewarm water rather than being sprayed with a water hose which was how the girls usually did it. So, I guess I was there to make sure. :razz:
Well-behaved kittens, indeed. :)
