After you have chosen your flea shampoo, it's time to prepare for bath time. Gather all of your supplies before you get started. For cats, bathing indoors in a small tub is easiest. If you bathe them in the larger bathtub, your cat may scramble away during the bathing, causing chaos in the house. For the bath, have the shampoo and conditioner bottles nearby and unsealed. Open the caps to make the process seamless. You will also need a water source like a sprayer or hose. A bucket of water will work as well. You will also need plenty of clean towels to dry your cat immediately after the bath. Warm the room to a comfortable temperature, and make sure the water is tepid. Most human bath temperatures are too warm for a cat's sensitive skin. Gather any brushes or combs you intend to use as well. It may also help to wear thick rubber gloves and a raincoat. You must have these items laid out before the bath starts so you can work quickly and efficiently.

Get the details on precisely where to bathe your cat next.
