What is the best way to clean the fur on my house cat?
My long haired Russian Blue cat's fur is long from the winter, and it needs a better cleaning than he alone can give it.
I would suggest getting some pet wipes from the pet supply store. They don't require any kind of rinsing (kind of like the wipes you might use for a baby) and will clean his fur in trouble areas. Is it tangled? If so you might have to brush it first. They can be used to clean his whole body and since they aren't too wet, he won't mind so much.
I've had older cats or sick cats that couldn't clean themselves very well and the pet wipes were very useful.
Thanks, LCDWriter. I used those once but didn't think Arby was too happy with the results or the perfume in them. So last night I just took a damp paper towel and rubbed him down with it. But when it's cold, I'm afraid it will not be good for him.

How do you motivate your stay at home wife to do more cleaning?I understand we have four children, and I am in no way expecting an immaculate house, but there has to be SOME effort. It seems to me that she just sits on the couch all day.
