Good luck trying to give your cat a bath! Cats are notorious for hating water and they fight tooth and nail (literally) when you try to dunk them. They seem to develop 4 more legs than what they normally have, and those feet and legs grab anything they can (including you) to avoid the water! Have someone help you do this. Talk calmly to kitty to help them relax. If all attempts fail, call your groomer. They are specialists in this field.
