If I were you I would not bathe a 20 year old cat, it will just stress them out! Have you ever heard of Advantage or Frontline? They are miraculous! Put it on the back of the neck at the base of the head and rub it in, fleas will drop within 24 hours!! In a month apply another dose! If is great stuff!! Please buy it because your cat i am sure is miserable!
You're such a good cat person, Rosie. I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's easy to judge a person by the way they treat animals. If you're good to your pets, you're gonna be good to people. If you're mean to your pets, you will be mean to people. Rosie, you're a good one ! I have no answer for the cat question as I'm not a cat person (I love them BUT) I am a dog person x 10.... Give me any dog to snuggle up with and I'm in heaven.
