Rusty was in need of a bath it started to feel like we were stroking wire wool. As we have no bath We have a couple of storage boxes a deep one with the lid and we put a shallow one half filled with water on top of the deep one
Rusty jumps up on a stall and steps into it, it saves all that bending over

He Sometime enjoys it but other times he a bite more reluctant. The one thing guaranteed is I get as much of a bath as rusty does but at least the label says that I'll have a nice glossy coat

Your story reminded me of when our cat came in covered in what looked like oil or grease.  His coat was matted and cats dislike water with a passion.  We both put on mac-a-macs and popped Scruffy in the kitchen sink with tepid water and set to.  What a commotion he made as we gently teased the gunge from him in some areas we had to cut his fur off to get rid of the muck.   We all survived our adventure don't know about a shiny coat but the macs were in shreds never mind it could have been our arms that were shredded.

Thanks Dorothy we only tried giving cats baths a couple of times  not very successful. once Todd came home with part of a gammon  joint covered  in cloves  and he'd  eaten some of them. It was making him sick and it was blasting  out of him  we need the bath if it was burning his poor bum

Poor Todd.  Our neighbours cat snatched a whole cooked chicken from my kitchen and legged it dropping bits of chicken all the way home.   I hope he enjoyed our dinner!!!  After we had a take-a-way I saw the funny side.  How is Isabella is she home?

Wonderful thank you. she very contented . Dani has had a few issues  with her own milk coming through but it's all settling down and they're get into a routine  now

That's good new Paul I am so pleased to read that she is doing well.   My friend had a lot of trouble when her daughter was born.  My friend got it into her head that her baby would starve to death as her milk was slow.   She had a good midwife who calmed her down.
