|Would like to add, for those that are going to use Dawn, you *have* to
dilute it. Mix the Dawn in a paper/plastic cup with some water, and pour
it over the cat. If you don't, if you put it on full strength, it will dry out
the skin and fur. Learned this the hard way, after someone told me to
use Dawn, to get the grease out, and never said to dilute it. He looked
worse than if I hadn't washed him.
Been hearing more about the vinegar rinse, but haven't tried it yet, and
some say dilute, some say not, but common sense tells me to dilute it. I
guess I don't want to go to a show, with him smelling like vinegar, mol.
I will say, I start the kittens on baby shampoo, for a couple of months.
Even have judges asking what I used on the kittens.
Tried an experiment yesterday on the 2 kittens, as it was the last round of
their bath training, before the show. They are 6 months old. Did one in
the baby shampoo, the other, with the formula I use for Bumpurr. I have
to say, the one with the baby shampoo, came out much much better.
So, in conclusion, I can say, baby shampoo, works much better on kitten
fur, rinse, rinse, rinse, as always. I use the Suave baby shampoo/conditioner.
Cannot tell you, how soft and fluffy he came out.
Harvey is right, its alot alot of trial and error, as what works for one cat,
does not, for another. Each cats fur is different.
Have heard good things about Ice on Ice, haven't tried it yet, its a finishing
Cowboy has officially graduated bath and blow dry training, a very good
Cruiser graduated bath training, good boy, but is going to have to go to
summer school, for blow dry training, mol, glad we still have a few weeks.
