Smelly cat! bathing/grooming question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

One of my cats has been smelling really yucky recently. I'm thinking about giving her a bath to see if it helps the smell, but I'm a little wary of bathing a cat!

Does anyone have any good recommendations of a natural cat shampoo that won't irritate her skin but will eliminate smells. I think the smell we're dealing with is anal gland juice in her fur. Her glands aren't impacted but she's just got some major stinky butt going on!

Thanks for any words of wisdom!!

I used to get a green apple scented shampoo from walmart.Worked really well on the pets. I am sure any of the shampoos for cats would help. I hate bathing my cats,but a firm grip at the back of the neck keeps them in place.

 

Maybe some baby wipes for the butt to help keep any bacterial growth(and then smell) down.

My cat is too fat to groom her own butt these days.  I have the mobile groomer come and bathe her and trim butt fur every six months.  So worth it,groomer has experience with cat bathing, so less stress on cat, and less blood loss for me.
