It actually works with cats too. I saw it on TV when I was out in CA and it was pretty OK. Alright, enough with the 2 letter abbreviations... it would be really handy for cats though, since they <b>hate</b> baths but still need them.

I'm glad they built that thing with a good solid door with a sturdy latch.

My Basset Hound just freezes or even sits down in the bath.

The soap has been forumlated so that it won't do any damage to the animal, IIRC.

Cats don't need baths...

Uh, some do. Hence the availability of Feline Shampoo And The Like.

Ever try to bathe a cat? It's best done from a distance of 20 feet with a hose and a floor drain.
dave Wednesday Jul 3 12:14 AM
Exactly. Hence my willingness to plop down $15 or $20 to let this do it for me.

Harry doesn't mind baths. He just sits in the tub. I suspect he likes it, though I don't think he'd admit it.

Some dogs LOVE baths
I have a friend who had a dog that LOVED baths - it was really silly. When you went to take a shower, the pooch would BEG to get in with you! That's the way my friend used to bathe the dog - strip down to skivys or nothing, hop in the shower, and call the dog. The dog would hop in, and get a shower! Easy enough that the dog would get a bath 2x-3x/week

Obviously it is easier to give a cat a bath than put him/her on a diet!

Cat bath: I thought that's what the toilet was for...? Squirt in a little shampoo, toss Fluffy in, close the lid, and flushy-flushy for 3-5 minutes!

I wonder if that thing could stand up to a 150-pound St. Bernard who hates baths.
