I "adopted" a 2-3 yr old Bengal cat. You should've seen his attitude the first time I bathed him. He peed all over, screamed bloody murder, tried to grab onto everything possible, and attempted to bunny hop out of the tub. He is WAY better now though. He's had about 3-4 baths now and barely makes a fuss.
I think Storm cat (this one) will be fine after a couple more. My old cat (Cougar) was pretty easy to bathe, but he hated the towel drying part! He would growl/hiss at you. Of course, after he sulked for awhile he'd come cuddle.
Of course the old Manx my parent's have screams like you are trying to kill her. You think she'd be used to it after 13 years. Does that dry bath stuff work pretty well? How does it work anyways?
