Should I use a leash when bathing my cat?

A gentle experience

Cats do not like to be restrained, so the less it feels like you're controlling her during her bath, the better. Speak in soft tones and use a few drops of a calming substance if she is very nervous.
Signs that your cat is anxious include ears and whiskers flat, tail thumping and open mouth panting.
