  • My daughter has coated cat with Sudocrem – what to do?

    So, my daughter has just applied a liberal coating of Sudocrem to our very hairy cat. I’d like to make this go as well as it can for the cat, what should I do? I have tried wiping it off without any success.

    baby wipes are pretty much the answer to everything sudocrem related in our house.

    Wipe baby’s bottom with cat. Two birds, one stone.

    I think your cat would be more traumatised by being put in the bath than having to lick off its own sudocrem to be honest. Do not do this.

    Wipes or a damp soapy flannel.

    Actually – vet. Seriously. It will lick itself, you need to know the medical view on this.

    Must be a pretty easy-going cat 🙂

    Ours would’ve left a few blood-stained parts of the miscreant’s carcass outside the kitchen door and the remains under the hedge.

    Good luck!

    Brilliant..

    Trying to be sensible through the giggles, the cat will either ingest a considerable amount of the Sudocrem or what ever you take it off with. I’d try with something olive oily, but then you’ll end up with a slippy cat.

    The poos will be novel too..

    If the cat will tolerate it, baby wipes and combing..

    It’s not toxic, but could give the cat the runs.

    We’ve been told it’s OK on our dog by the vet when she gets the occasional sore and she just licks it straight off without any ill effects.

    Our white cat got covered in oil under a car.

    This lead to the memorable words to my boss;

    “I need to go home and Swarfega the cat.”

    I tried, got ripped to shreds and gave up and the vet did it under general anaesthetic.

    I suggest you cut out the fighting, pain and general ‘chasing a reluctant cat around the bathroomness’ of my approach and go straight to the vets.

    I would say you need to remove the sudocrem ASAP before the cat licks it off as I can’t imagine that doing it much good.

    In our case that would involve me getting into one of those chainmail suits used by shark feeders and attempting to bath the cat.

    Maybe speak to a vet for advice on whats best to use – there may be cat shampoo available. Our 14 year old cat would kick my head in if i attempted to shampoo it.

    Right.

    I have photos (they will have to wait to be posted as I can’t reach my host using the iPad…) and have contacted the vet (good call molgrips, thanks).

    The vet said I have to “firmly rub” the cat with fairy liquid and then bathe it 🙁

    Thankfully the cat is very docile – I have never known her even hiss – but this may be a step too far. We shall see. She is currently sitting outside looking sorry for herself in a ‘teenager with too much hairgel and not enough of a clue’ style.

    As for high fiving, regrettably the first thing I did was laugh :/

    Phone the vet and ask for advice or you could try and brush it out, our long haired soft lump loves a good brush, he will also tolerate a bath (kind of :?)

    Slippy cat in bath covered in Fairy Liquid.

    Again, good luck with that let us know how it goes

    I have to rugby tackle ours and pin it down just to put some flea treatment on the back of its neck.

    Have a look on youtube at ‘how to disable a cat’ – it may help when cleaning it off. 8)

    (for those lazy people, it involves a bulldog clip, the cats neck and a natural reaction). 😆

    I’d def go with the baby wipes to start with, can just stroke it with them rather than upset it rubbing something in.

    if you go down they DIY route put a bathmat in the bottom of the bath.

    It’s amazing how much damage a cats claws can do to even an enamel bath finish whilst its legs are running at 30mph and you’ve still got it pinned to the bottom of the bath.

    I think your cat would be more traumatised by being put in the bath than having to lick off its own sudocrem to be honest.

    my mother used to shampoo the cat in the bath if he needed it – cat had no problems with it so give it a try.

    if you scruff the cat she’ll go limp; it’s a built in kitten carrying reflex.

    Just don’t relax the grip, because although the cat’s ‘paralysed’ while you do this, the resentment isn’t, that’s building and waiting for a chance to vent. When you do finally let go – run like hell, and DON’T LOOK BACK

    Don’t waste water either; get the dishes in the bath too.

    The vet missed the opportunity for a very amusing Mrs Slocombe-style double entendre there –

    The vet said I have to “firmly rub” the pussy

    would have been so much more (mildly) amusing…

    You won’t wash it off, btw.

    Have you got a wirlpool bath, if so, stick a stack of washing up liquid in the bath, turn the taps on, start the motors, fling the cat in, then slam the door shut to the bathroom, wait until you see bubbles coming out of the top of the bathroom door, then stand back and open the door…

    Video camera at the ready 😉

    good point – cats have an off-switch. Wish I’d known the bulldog clip trick when I still had cats – then trying to clean melted marshmallow off them would have been much less bloody
