What's the proper way to wash a cat?

People say that grabbing your cat by the back of the neck is bad but that's how my cousin does it. Is there a nicer way?

    Just put it in a bathtub or wash basin.Carry it gently. No need to even handle it by the neck. Using a handheld shower will work. Very easy to rinse off the shampoo with a hose ending in a shower head.

    Yeah...Drop her into the washer & use Gain with Downy. OK. It's best to use your tongue like her mommy did.

    You do not wash a cat, cats clean themselves, and to grab it like that may even cause the cat to die from shock, if it survived it would never trust you again.

    I watched a person bathe a cat in a bathtub and the poor cat tried to get out and hit his head against the tub. I've used a damp cloth if needed and then brushed the fur.

    As most cats hate being wet, there really isn't a "nicer" way.

    The best you can do is restrain their legs in a way that prevents them from hurting themselves while you're doing it.

    Cats wash and bathe themselves.  Unless, the cat actually got into something, there is no reason to bathe them.
