How to bathe kitty?
How do I bathe the kitten & what shampoo do I use? My husband said that if we wash him, we may have to dry him with a drier. Is this true? I can't take him outside as yet, cos he will run away, if left on the ground. Do I just towel dry him?

You can towel dry cats. Some dislike the hair drier whie others bask in the warmth. If it is not frightened by it (try t on the cat before you bath it) then air dry him. Please use a pet shampoo available from your vet or Vet Shop. Some cats enjoy beng bathed but others react aggressively so be careful.
