I'm wondering if i should start bathing ben? he is a long haired cat ( which i've never had before) and i'm wondering if i should start giving him a bath. I had a bengal that loved water and i would take him to the beach to swim and he loved it! It might sound weird but are long haired cats able to keep as clean as short haired?? Thanks...... P.s. i noticed at pet stores that they sell cat shampoo to make them smell good.
