Just like lions, tigers, cheetahs, and leopards, pet cats spend an enormous amount of time grooming themselves.

In fact, cats spend 30% - 50% of their day self-grooming!

As soon as they are born, a mother cat will begin to lick her kittens to stimulate the litter, and from that point onwards all cats continue with this behaviour. Why do adult cats clean themselves? There are several reasons. It’s a way to get rid of unwanted dirt and parasites, prevent hairballs, bond with others, and keep the coat clean and shiny.

But even though a cat’s tongue is equipped with tiny sharp barbs purrrfect for licking, all kitties can use a “helping paw” to stay clean.

That’s why vpets recommends using a vegan shampoo and conditioner.
Benefits of Cat Space and Amazonia Over Regular Pet Shampoos and Conditioners
Vegan pet products come with many benefits. Unlike most commercial shampoos sold in pet stores, vegan products will contain natural ingredients. No harsh chemicals or synthetic additives. Additionally, these are cruelty-free and eco-friendly – so cat parents can feel good knowing their purchase came from a sustainable and ethical source.

But let’s talk specifically about what makes Cat Space products so wonderful.

For example:
Dry Bath Spray is Available
Does water turn your kitty into a scaredy cat?

Bath time can be a struggle for cats who dislike getting wet. Unfortunately, it can also lead to squirming and scratches – ouch! Luckily, Cat Space carries a dry bath spray vegan cat shampoo that is no-rinse, no hassle.
Non-Stinging Ingredients
Nothing stings more than getting soap in your eyes! Now, imagine being a cat. To guarantee a pain-free bath, vpets only stock shampoos and conditioners that are plant-derived with natural fragrances and ingredients, and thus non-irritating to sensitive skin and eyes.

Vegan Cat Shampoo & Conditioner FAQs

Of course, you want to bathe your kitty safely.

On each bottle of Cat Space or Amazonia vegan cat shampoo and conditioner, you will see a list of ingredients.

In addition to filtered spring or coconut water, there will be plant-derived cleaning agents. This could include oils and fragrances from aloe vera, acai berry, oatmeal, almonds, etc. Glycerine is often added to moisturize fur and soothe your cat’s skin. Unsafe chemicals, toxins, and parabens are not used.

Every cat will be different.

To select the right product, think about their unique qualities. Do they despise getting wet? Dry bath shampoo will help keep them clean. Is their long fur easily matted? Go with a detangling conditioner. Extremely sensitive skin? Cat Space has pH balanced shampoos that are ultra-gentle.

Your cats coat type, age, and water tolerance level will all play a part in choosing the best product.

Thankfully, vpets carries a wide selection so that every cat can find the perfect match!

Before answering this question, first ask yourself, “Is my cat an indoor or outdoor cat?”

Cats who never go outside (and interact less with other animals) run a lower risk of getting physically “dirty” or picking up parasites such as fleas. However, it’s important for all cats to have a bath regularly to stay healthy.

The National Cat Groomers Institute (NCGI) recommends every 4 – 6 weeks.

Generally, yes.

One or two accidental licks won’t contain enough toxicity to seriously harm a cat.

While vpets prides ourselves on the highest-quality and safest vegan cat shampoos and conditioners, ingesting any bathing substance should always be avoided. Prevent shampoo and conditioner from getting into your cat’s mouth by washing their fur in a downward motion along the shape of their body.

Another great tip?

Cat Space Vegan Cat Shampoo (Dry Bath) leaves no residue. Just hold the nozzle approximately 6 inches from your cat and spray, then spread over the entire coat with a clean, dry cloth, rubbing in the direction of hair growth. Remove any excess with a clean, dry cloth.

Simply put, they aren’t fish…they’re cats!

No, but on a serious note, cats are not water animals. Biologically, they have no affinity for oceans, rivers, or lakes. From an evolution standpoint, felines that became domesticated never had to learn to swim, and so being in a pool of water goes against their behaviour.

Furthermore, cats are creatures of habit. They dislike too much change. While a dog will happily follow their master into the shower, cats prefer the normalcy of grooming themselves with their paws and tongues.

Remember, bathing cats is do-able with the right approach and products!
