Much to some people’s horror I do bathe my cat. Some people have said to me that cats don’t need to have a bath because they self clean. Well, maybe most cats do, but my cat, LC, isn’t most cats. She gets a bath once a month and like every cat, she hates it but she knows she needs one.
I used to use a shampoo that was recommended by LC’s vet in Melbourne. I’ve since tried a few others but I’ve never really liked them because either they just smelt weird or didn’t really do anything for LC’s fur.
I didn’t actually start giving her a baths until she about six months old, but it was only after she started to gain some independence and spent days and nights outdoors and coming home reeking of whatever she was rolling in I needed to put my foot down and subject her to the painful five minutes a month where she needs to be submerged in water.
|▪ Comes in a pump bottle (Believe me, this is a blessing when you’re holding down an animal who wants to get out of a bathtub).
▪ Scent mainly of Tea Tree. But also has lemon rind and spearmint leaf.
▪ 1-2 pumps will lather well a small animal
▪ Good for cats, dogs and other furry animals
▪ Thick consistency for a deep clean
|▪ The scent doesn’t really last on the fur. One day and you can smell the animal’s natural fur smell.|
This is far my favourite animal shampoo I’ve ever used on LC. The first time I used it she didn’t make a huge fuss about being in a bucket of warm water.
Although the scent of tea tree didn’t linger on her fur for long, her fur is much softer and shiner than with the other shampoos I’ve bought her.
Available at all Aēsop stores for $37 for a 500mL bottle. (One size only).
