Hairless Cat Hygiene: Bathing and Care

The popular belief that cats without fur does not need to be bathed is not entirely true, as it has a short, thin and almost invisible layer of fur. Hairless cats accumulate dirt on oily skin and sweat excessively. It is recommended to bathe a hairless cat once a month (every 20-30 days). During this period, the skin becomes oily, reddish in color. If you don’t wash it, then the cat: will turn dirty; accumulate harmful microorganisms on the body; Blurs places and objects on which he climbs. How to bathe a bald cat Bathing a cat of a bald breed is similar to washing an adult cat of any other breed. Be sure to cleanse areas of the body that accumulate more dirt. Before bathing, they are treated with wet wipes for cats eyes, claws and ears. Sphinxes or Egyptian cats do not have eyelashes, so tear is greater than other breeds. Eyelashes prevent the entry of pathogens that cause diseases of the organs of vision. Cleaning your cat’s eyes every week with sterile cat wipes and saline to remove dirt and secretions is the prevention of eye diseases. Claws are another part of the body where dirt accumulates between baths. Be sure to cut your claws every time they grow too long and remove the dirt under them. Naked cats accumulate more sulfur than other breeds. Sphinxes have large ears, so we recommend cleaning drops. After you have treated the hairless cat, bathe the animal: Use a bath, basin or sink. Pour some warm water without filling to the brim. You need a pleasant temperature, as hot or cold water will damage sensitive skin. Start moistening slowly the whole body without touching the head, then carefully pay a little more attention to the legs and stomach. Stir shampoo for hairless cats with water, distribute throughout the body with massage movements. Rinse your body with plenty of water and repeat the same operation, but now focus only on the head. Do not pour water into your nose or eyes. If you find that the cat is nervous, use a damp cloth and wipe thoroughly. Finally, pull out of the bath and dry thoroughly with a soft towel, make sure the skin is completely dry. What shampoo for hairless cats to buy Before bathing the sphinx, choose the appropriate shampoo for cats that meets the needs of the skin. Get shampoo gel for hairless cats with sensitive skin. Do not use a shampoo that smells strong or stiff for bare skin, which irritates sensitive skin.
