I have a two year old female cat. I'm used to bathe her once a week with a special shampoo for cats. Sadly, the cat never liked the bath. Instead, few times when I start preparing the bath for her (e.g. bring her towel) she hides under the bed. When I carry her to the bathroom she start crying and trying to push me off her and run away.
I try my best to make it as easy as possible for her. I do not retstrict her (too much) while rubbing her. I leave her in around 1X1m area while I splash her or rub her leaving her paws on the floor. I heard from friends that it takes few baths before they start enjoying it. Unfortunately, she never enjoyed it or at least accepted it as a normal thing. Few hours after the bath though, once she is all dry, she comes running around me and wants to play.
Is there any way to make her like bathing?
