Cats can be difficult and they will let you know when they don’t like something. Unlike dogs, cats have a strong opinion about cleanliness. They know better what “being clean” means. Cats don’t agree with having to take a bath to be clean. Look what they do all day. They play, catch bugs and mice, lick themselves clean and take long naps.
You ask them to do something they don’t like, watch out. They will not go easy on you. The claws come out. Bathing is know to be one of their least favorite things to do. Try to bathe your cat and you may end up looking like you fought your way through a wilderness with thick underbrush and thorn bushes.
Check out these funny clumsy cats taking a bath. They clearly are not thrilled.
