Keeping on top of your cat’s hygiene is very important. While they can usually groom and clean themselves, they do occasionally need a helping hand. A cat cleaning wipe could be your saviour.
Cats may find their fur difficult to work with and completely clean (such as Persians). Or, they may have gotten dusty and dirty from being outside. Some older cats can also struggle to clean themselves as their mobility decreases.
Unlike dogs, most cats have an aversion to water. So, if cat shampoo is a big no, a wipe could be the answer. They will remove any dirt and loose hair as well as deodorising and care for the fur and skin.
Cat cleaning wipes are specially manufactured for felines, so aren’t the same as baby wipes and can also differ from many dog wipes. We looked for wipes that are safe for your cat to use and are non-toxic so they can groom themselves tomorrow with no worry about the residue being consumed.
You may also have to consider how large each individual wipe is. Using a tiny wipe on a large cat who needs a thorough clean would take a while. Also consider where the wipe is safe to use – most can be used on fur, but you can get specific wipes for the face or bottom.
These are our top picks for the best cat cleaning wipe, which we have ensured are suitable for any need.
