Our latest favourite kitty shampoo –

Solid Gold Herbal Pet Shampoo

We are on our second bottle of this shampoo and we really like it! The reasons why are simple. We realise that because of the ingredients in this shampoo, such as coconut oil, it makes the kitty’s coat shine – without any need for conditioner! We also like the fact that it uses natural ingredients: apart from coconut oil, essential oils such as chamomile and rosemary. We try to stay away from shampoos using synthetic ingredients to prevent allergic reactions, so this shampoo really tops our list.

Ingredient list:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Chamomile
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Nettles
  • Myrrh
  • Red Clover Blossoms
  • Yarrow Flowers
  • Pennyroyal Oil

Does it smell nice? It smells a bit like herbal tea, and a little bit spicy and woody.

As for showering your cat – how often should you do it? Cats should not be bathed more frequently than once in 2 weeks as their skin will tend to dry out. We do make exceptions to this rule for special cases, like for baby kittens learning to eat and getting dried food stains all over themselves, kittens with diarrhoea soiling or for kittens needing skincare shampoo (see next paragraph).

We also have 2 other shampoos in our grooming cache for special uses. A flea shampoo we use on all new arrivals before we pen them in kindles – currently we are using Troy Petgloss but we also like Biogroom Flea and Tick Shampoo. Both use pyrethins as the active ingredient which we like, as it is natural without causing allergic reactions in cats. Our other special use shampoo is Pyoben, which contains benzoyl peroxide for aiding healing in skin problems and wounds. We use it on kitties with problems like cat acne, fur loss from parasites or allergies, abrasions, abscesses, surgical wounds. You probably don’t have to have these special use shampoos unless the need arises or you are a fosterer.

If you need a bottle of cat shampoo and weren’t sure which one to buy, we hope our recommendation helps!
