|Not sure if these would work for Angel, because she is so small, but you
could run them by your vet.
Persian show people put a "bib" on their cats at shows, for the very same
reason. Some just use a baby bib, some use what looks like an
elizabethan collor, only its just a coffee filter, with a hole cut in the bottom
to put the cats head thru. If you go this route, and ask your vet first,
do not leave her unattended with them on. The Persian show cats are used
to it, they get left on in between classes, but Angel is not, and she is so
Another thing show people use is grooming powder. It comes in all colors,
to match the cat, it absorbs the grease, but you have to brush it out
really really well. Others use, I think it is cornstarch, Harvey could tell you
better about this one. But run this by your vet first too.
I would not use any soap on her, she is too small. When she gets older/
bigger, you can teach her to get a bath, and I use baby shampoo on my
show kittens. Too much trama for her right now.
