There's nothing a cat hates more than a bath. But as we all know, it is a necessary evil sometimes. Here's eleven pictures of cats who lost the battle for the bathtub. While these pictures are amusing, baths truly can be very stressful for cats. A cat should only be subjected to a bath when its fur is soiled beyond the cat's ability to clean it on its own, or if there are fleas and/or ticks present. If you're unsure about how to bathe your cat, check with your veterinarian for instructions.
