Bath Time

You will need:
  • baby shampoo (Johnson & Johnson)
  • clean socks (to rub with soap)
  • warm towels
I find the kitchen sink the most convenient for this job.
Frequency depends on your cat; how greasy he gets. It may vary from once a week to once a month.

  1. Fill the sink up with warm water.
  2. Let your Sphynx cat feel the water so it has an idea of the temperature.
  3. Put on the socks on your both hands...then gently lift your cat, and slowly lower in the water.
  4. Wet your cat's body with water, adding soap on the wet socks...then rub.
  5. Avoid the eyes & the ears. If water goes into the ears, they can get infected.
  6. Rinse off the soap completely.
  7. Rest your cat down on a soft & warm towel.
  8. Reward him for his patience.
Since Monkey doesn't stay still for long, I do the ear cleaning, nail cleaning, trimming, & eye cleaning in separate sessions, which happens more frequently than a bath.

Whilst I often find a cat in the kitchen sink, usually licking a dirty plate clean, if I tried to do that to any of mine they would kill me with their claws!
Monkey is one amazing looking cat!
