Is it healthy to bring my cat in the shower with me?

My cat absolutely loves it when I bring him in the shower with me and I do it often. What I want/need to know is is it healthy to have the warm water running on him even when I have his ears coverd?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! It is never healthy to a bring a feline in the shower with u.it could start a bad habbit(it depends how long have u been doing it!).Besides hair the cat sheds can clog yur drain,it could have pest on it that u dont know about(only if u let it inside),and other things.trust me,I KNOW ALOT ABOUT CATS!!!

If your cat likes which is pretty strange then I don't see why it would be harmful?? In the winter or if it's cold, your cat might not get dry, and get chilled? Indeed the hair factor is something to think about. But I think human hair clogs drain just as readily as any cat hair that might wash off during your shower. Human shampoo is not recommend for cats, so avoid shampoo or soaps...but water....go for it!!!

If your cat is an indoor cat with all the proper shots, I don't see why not, if he is outside without all the proper shots & fronline that you get from the Vet according to weight I don't see a problem, it probably the same as having your cat or dog sleep with you.
