do you bathe your cat?

I've never heard of bathing a cat before but df is trying to convince me that generally people wash their cats. I had always been under the impression that they cleaned themselves...?

Yes. They get baths once a month-ish.

No freaking way!! I like the skin on my arms intact! lol I did have to bathe and comb the feral kittens I took in. They were so gross and covered in fleas. They weren't too happy being bathed, but they smelled so pretty after and the fleas were gone. :) I wouldn't even attempt to bathe my adult cat though! lol

I've had cats all my life and never once bathed one.

Ah, no.  It would be run bath grab cat, throw cat in water, run for your life, hide in fear for the next year.  I have psycho kitty from hell there is no way I would even try this.

Nope. Only if they got into something gross- like my diabetic cat peed in the litterbox with no litter in it (he just couldn't wait, apparently!) and jumped out, flipping the box on himself. He was covered with pee, so he got a bath. That was probably only his 2nd bath in his 15 years.
My late kitty Jonah used to freak out at the vet and would pee and poop on himself. That always required a post-vet-visit scrubbing.

Is this a euphemism for something else?
