Petkin Deodorizing Kitty Wipes are a no-fuss way to keep cats clean.

In the neverending battle of cat people vs. dog people, cat owners often use the argument that their pristine felines clean themselves, making them much easier to groom when necessary. For those messes that felines can’t quite handle, though, cat owners have a secret weapon – Deodorizing Kitty Wipes from Petkin.
These easy-to-use wipes live up to their claim as an “Instant Pet Bath,” cleaning up dirt, mud, or other accidents and leaving behind only a mild scent and soft fur. Our tester cat (who would have bolted at the sight of water) didn’t mind the quick grooming session with this wipe in the least, and her fur was noticeably cleaner and silkier after use.
This healthy texture of the coat could be because of the conditioning elements these wipes contain, such as aloe vera, lanolin, and oatmeal, to name a few. And ingredients such as baking soda create a clean-smelling feline, without an overwhelming scent that will send your cat into a frenzy of self-licking.
Even more impressive is the list of ingredients that the Petkin Deodorizing Kitty Wipes doesn’t contain. The wipes have no alcohol, are non-toxic, and work with any topical flea treatments that you might be using.
The mildness and natural ingredients of these wipes also make them an ideal solution for cleaning cats at all life stages, from young kitties to senior cats, who may have difficulty reaching certain spots because of physical limitations.
With Petkin Deodorizing Kitty Wipes in your grooming arsenal, keeping your cat clean can be a snap. Just don’t tell the dog people next time you’re bragging about your spotless feline.
Pros: Ideal for cats with difficulty cleaning themselves.

I usually don't bathe or wash my cat because he does a pretty good job of that himself. However, when he get's into something or makes a mess, these work well to help him out. They smell great also.

Works but was a bit misleading

I was so relieved when I bought these, as later I had an instant need of them when my cat had a little fun in the litter box...
On the back it says, "mild fragrance" as a key ingredient. There is nothing mild about this scent. It smells just like the disinfecting wipes you could use to wipe down your kitchen.
When I first opened the package, a good 2 feet away from her, she backed up and squinted her eyes. I tried to ease my cat into getting used to the smell. Gave her treats and brought it increasingly closer, etc.
Her first (and much needed) "bath" went pretty well, despite her trying to escape the dreaded smell.
Later on, I noticed her back was twitching, and she would stop and scratch at her neck and bite her sides. I think it was irritating her skin.
On the upside, it worked, got rid of the smell, she looked great afterwords, and she's still alive.
I will definitely only be using these in case of emergencies, however, not for regular bathing.
Pros: No water needed, easy to use, gives fur softer feel, looks healthier
Cons: overpowering scent, weak reseal, may cause irritation

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
