How to wash your cat: 1. Thoroughly clean the toilet and flush twice. 2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water and have both the lid and seat lifted. 3. Obtain the cat and soothe him/her while you carry it toward the bathroom. 4. In one smooth but rapid movement, put the cat into the toilet, and rapidly close BOTH the seat and the lid. (you may need to stand on the lid so that the cat cannot escape). CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge of the toilet especially if you have a split seat, as his/her paws will be reaching out for any purchase they can find. 5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a “power wash and rinse” which I have found to be quite effective. 6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door. 7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can; quickly lift the seat and lid. 8. The now clean cat will rocket out of the toilet and run outside where it will dry itself. Sincerely, The BIG DOG PS, This will only work once, DO NOT ever carry the cat toward the bathroom again as the cat will remember like an elephant and fight like a crazed tiger.
