Put you cat in the bath tub while it's empty. Give them a chance to get used to the surroundings, Then slowly start the water running into the tub, making sure it's nice and warm without being too hot. Let your cat paw at the water, and get used to having their feet in it for a little while BEFORE you start putting any water on their coats. Using a small cup, slowly pour some water higher up on their legs, then their butt, then their back and shoulders. Never get their face wet, they hate that. When you have them wet enough, use the Espree Cat Care Silky Show Shampoo on them, rubbing it in like your giving them a massage. Slowly rinse using the cup and water. Have plenty of towels on the floor so when you pick them up out of the water, you can put them right on the towels, and wrap them up to start drying them. If your patient, and talk to them a lot during this, you'll be surprised that it won't be the fight you probably usually have. This process worked really well on both our cats, and our female cat is usually a holy terror in the tub, but even she behaved surprisingly well. I think it has something to do with the scent of the shampoo too, it's very calming. Good luck.
