Raven asks, "What did I do to deserve a bath? The vet said I have healthy skin and fur, so why are you getting it wet? It's been a year since my last bath and I thought I was doing quite well grooming myself. I've even left some hairballs for you this week.
Mom: Exactly, Raven. An occasional bath helps keep your skin and coat healthy. More importantly, the bath will help get rid of some loose fur so you don't eat it while grooming and end up with more hairballs. Don't worry, you'll be dry soon.
