Rebecca is a bit too fat to clean herself (at 20 lbs) and I need to give her a bit of spa treatment. She hates getting wet. She is very big and very strong and I know there is going to be a huge battle to try to bathe her. Is there anyway I can bathe her without being scratched up, bit, and peed on? I mean, she really, really hates water! My other cats clean themselves, but because of her weight, she just can't reach most of her dirty parts. Is there a way to clean her without water?
