How often can a cat be washed?

First of all, you should know that healthy cats are clean and without water treatments, so without the need not resort to bathing.

Moreover, it must be remembered that the hair of an animal is covered with a special lubricant, which is produced by the subcutaneous glands. Bathing a cat, you deprive it of its natural protection. As a result, the quality of wool can significantly deteriorate. It is necessary to bathe a cat not more often than once a year. If the animal is an exhibition, water procedures can be carried out up to 3 times a year.
