How to De Skunk a Cat After Being Sprayed

It's important to de skunk a cat immediately after being sprayed by a skunk. Cats are the most difficult animal to care for after they have been sprayed by a skunk, especially considering how much they tend to hate baths. Always be extra cautious with cats when trying to bathe them after being sprayed by a skunk.

      Before you begin, I highly suggest having at least one other person to help you bathe the cat. The more people that can help though, the better.

      The most common method of getting rid of the skunk smell, is to bathe the cat in tomato juice. Though it will not get rid of all of the smell, I suggest starting with a Tomato Juice bathe. To do this, fill a sink with a few cans of tomato juice. Massage it into the cat gently for about 5 minutes. Then rinse all of the tomato juice off of the cat. Be sure to keep the eyes protected while doing this.

      Afterwards, use a skunk off shampoo to get rid of the rest of the smell (this can be found under resources below). Skunk off shampoo is safe for pets as well as animals.

      If you prefer not to use skunk off shampoo, I suggest making your own skunk off shampoo. To make your own, mix 1 quart of hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup of baking soda, and one teaspoon of a liquid soap.
