Yes, I know Gratch isn't a cow. Just wondering if I should try give her a water only wash down? Around the nipples is matted down and I don't want the poor beastie feeling grubby. Obviously I'll leave her if people think it's best to but she can't quite get it clean herself and I wasn't sure if the kittens are more likely to take in extra bacteria from it. If I am advised to wash her it'll only be the underside with warm water and I'll towel dry/low setting hair dryer to get her back to her kittens fast.
