- My daughter has coated cat with Sudocrem – what to do?
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..Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years agoPapa_LazarouMember
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.Posted 5 years agoMarkieMember
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 :/Posted 5 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
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 BACKPosted 5 years agoskiMember
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…

We’ve just come back form the Pub and I’ve logged on.
We’re in hysterics.
True Office howler.
If it was me I would have got some superglue and glued its paws to the bath/shower and turned it on to hot then got the loafer out from the airing cupboard and liberally covered the cat in shampoo, then soaked the bloody thing. Then waited as it chewed its own paws off to break free.
I too vote for pictures.Posted 5 years ago
