However, there are a few surprises, do you know which cats like water?
A lot of cats hate water because they know that they don’t belong in it, and it does not feel right on their skin. Cats don’t take baths because they clean themselves with their tongue to get their fur clean. They are scared to death of water, and they don’t like to go anywhere near it. They will scratch and bite you until you let them go. They will panic just by the sound of it. If you bath them, it will be tough to do because they will try to get out of the water, and they will use your skin as their ladder to get out. They don’t mean to hurt you. It’s just that they are scared.
They will pace around in the tub and meow at you to let them out of there. When they get out, they will not come near you after you clean them off because they will be furious at you for what you have done to them. They will lick their fur for an hour to get it the way they want it to be or how they like it. But some cats like the water and like to play in it. These cats will sit in the water and not move until you are done because they like the feel of it. Some cats will try to take a bath or a shower with you. They want to walk around the tub and play in the water because of the bubbles or if there is something in the water.
You have to bath them every week to keep the fleas out of their fur and to help them stay clean. If you bath a cat at a young age, they will learn to love the water because they will be used to it. Some cats will even go to the pool with you to go swimming, but it is best to put a life jacket on them so they can float and have fun with you. Sometimes cats will think they are dogs because they like water and they can swim in it. Watch your cat around you when you take an oil bath because if they get in it or fall in it, their fur will stick straight up, and they will look like a furball. The oil that came from the bath will stay in their hair for a while, and it will look funny to see them like that. It will go down in time. It just takes a few days or weeks.

NOT ANYMORE, THOUGH (hardly). He finally likes something! This fountain is pretty cool, and there is a noticeable drop in him sticking his face in our water. He started using it after a few hours. He used to do acrobatics to get at the human pool, but I haven’t seen that since we got this, and he no longer cries for our water. The other cat is a little funny about it and gets in a very odd position to stick her face JUST SO and gets her short kitty beard all wet, but overall it seems a success.
