If you use scoopable litter, change it before it really smells. If it smells bad to you, imagine what it's like for the cat. :D

I have never given a cat a bath in my life and see no reason to do so, unless the cat has somehow gotten covered with some sort of substance, or anything it can't clean off it's own fur.

oops I just gave her a bath today, I havn't done so since I first found her in a lumbar yard covered in fleas. I was a worse experience for me than her I think, so I probably won't do that again now that I know they don't need baths. Thanks.
