I haven't used this brand before, but maybe someone else has. I wouldn't have thought to try a 'hairball' formula.

For Nudie I use "efa Hy lyt" shampoo from the vets. It's a shampoo made for sensitive skinned animals that is soap free and contains coconut oil.

Bleh, I try not to buy anything made by Hartz... I think their only objective is to kill things. Fleas, ticks, cats, etc..

I use Dove Sensitive Skin cream body wash or the Dove Cream Oil body washes. They work great, get all of the dirt and muck off gently, and leave the cat feeling insanely soft. Plus, I can use it on myself :) The breeder I got Baron from has used either of those for the past 10 years with very good results and no reactions.

Don't forget to get bath gloves. You need to exfoliate that skin and really scrub under their chin, the folds under their cheek bones, their toes and the top of the tail. That's where oil likes to collect and you'll get blackheads there.

I have used Aveeno baby wash with oatmeal and Johnson & Johnson baby wash with oatmeal and both work great on my boy. I was him once a week. I put cetaphil cream on his back for extra moisturizing without being oily. I use Huggies or WalMart brand baby wipes to clean his forehead wrinkles in between baths and clean his nails. All have worked great on Jack. If I don't put the cetaphil on his back, he doesn't feel as soft. :Smile:

My breader, too, used Dove for many years (she's been breading for 12) and none of her cats had bad reactions. I just chose to try Aveeno baby wash because I didn't want to worry about his eyes burning if soap got in them...also baby washes are pretty gentle and made for skin, not hair.
