The most important routine would be bathing, which is the most difficult thing to do since cats, well most of them, hate baths! However, it does not discount the need to give them a quick shower when their coat becomes greasy and oily, or if he / she has gotten into something smelly and sticky. Some things to take note of before giving them a bath is to give your cat a brushing to remove all the dead and tangled hair; place a rubber bath mat in a sink or bath tub to provide secure footing (as your cat will try to escape); fill in your bathtub or sink with about 3-4 inches of lukewarm water.
When showering cats, it is important to first gently use a spray hose to thoroughly wet your cat, but make sure not to spray directly in her ears, eyes or nose. If you don’t have a spray hose, a bucket will do. Remember to gently massage in shampoo, working from head to tail in one direction; thoroughly rinse with a spray hose or bucket - again, avoid the ears, eyes and nose; and last but not least, dry (really dry) your cat with a large towel.
The bottom line is to make bath a pleasant experience for your cats and not a torture session! Be prepared to catch and put your cat back into the sink or bathtub in case of emergency escape...
