Default Milly's 1st Bath!

It didn't go so well. She hated everything about it. She pooped in the water at least 4 times, huffed and puffed and charged my hand, and hid her feet when I tried to clean the poo off of them. Then she pouted for hours afterward, and all the next day because I made her take a bath when she didn't want to. Sigh... I got some cute pictures, though!

Question - is it strange that she smells really strongly of cat food after I give her a bath?

Sorry for the poopy pictures.

My fiance took the pictures as I was giving her a bath, and it got to the point where she was so squirmy and upset that I told him to put the camera away and help. Those were the only 3 decent pictures. The other 3 or 4 are either blurry, or my head hides most of Milly.

I used the Aveeno Oatmeal stuff because she's been quilling so bad. I'm not sure if it brings out the natural smell she has, which just smells like cat food, or if she anointed with her food at some point and she just stunk to high heaven because of it... it's icky though.

What do you guys use for "regular" baths? I read somewhere that most pet shampoos & baby-safe soaps are acceptable. I'm thinking about getting some Johnson&Johnson lavender baby wash, in the hopes that the lavender will help her relax during baths.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Bath-time was nerve-wracking, but it was fun/cute as well.
