While it’s not necessary to bathe cats like dogs, the simple process of keeping their paws clean can improve their health and wellness as well as their comfort, and reduce their tracking soil and litter throughout the house. A soft and damp rag is enough to clean ordinary dirt and grime from cats’ paws; while you’re cleaning each paw, do a cursory examination for any cuts, scrapes, irritations or other signs of injury, illness or discomfort. If necessary, don’t hesitate to consult with your vet about the condition of your cats’ paws.
Cleaning up after pets is a sometimes unpleasant but necessary part of being a responsible pet owner. By developing a routine that includes a few simple steps like regular litter box maintenance and wiping your cat’s paws daily, you can minimize the time and energy spent cleaning and enjoy more time with your cat.
