Mama cats are fabulous creatures. We have seen proof of this many many times. They are very intuitive to their kittens needs and are on-call 24/7 to ensure that their babies are safe, warm and have food in their bellies. They are even willing to foster babies from other species, they are truly remarkable.
I guess this applies to bath-time too! It would appear that the mama cat in this video has decided it’s wash time for kitten and she won’t take no for an answer, whether her kitten wants it or not. With determination she pins her kitten down and gives her that all important cleaning session. It reminds me of when my daughter was a toddler and she would run and hide whenever I said it was time for a shower. Thankfully she has grown out of that as I’m sure this kitty will too – it’s all part of growing up!
