					Good luck with that one. I only had one cat that loved the bath tub. And that cat was super spoiled and kinda weirdo lol.

					When you are ready to bathe the cat, get a cup for pouring water and a towel to dry the cat with. Get the shampoo ready. If you have an extra person to help you, that's great, too! Having all of your supplies ready in advance can help you bathe your kitten when the moment comes. You don't want to finally get your kitty in the bath to find that you've left the shampoo or towel in the other room.
It's also a good idea to close the door of your bathroom to keep your kitty from running off.

					Definitely hold the cat by the back of the neck like when momma cats pick up their babies it won't him the cat at all but if your car isn't use to baths you are about to have a war 😱

					Make sure u have some water already in the tub. Put him/her in slowly and calm him down ...don't just pour water all over him.  Put a little animal shampoo on then slowly rub one water on him.     If not there's a spray you can buy, u put it on a rag and basically brush him with it.

					Holding them by the skin behind their neck like the mother carries her kittens renders them unable to move and easier to bathe. Hold just the skin. Do not grab the full neck. It does not hurt them despite how it looks. Bathe them quickly and make sure it is warm in the home not just the water. Put the paws down on the floor before you release the cat to avoid getting scratched. We have had over 100 cats. Took us a while to learn they reproduce quickly.
