As a new cat-mom, I was struggling a lot with bathing her. She’s old enough to be in the shower room but I had nothing to shower her with. One time, I was so desperate, I used my own homemade liquid soap on her but I wasn’t happy with the results. I felt really bad for her too.
Did a quick googling and the brand “Earthbath” was showing up a lot, which led me to have a heavier impression on them. When you google “the best shampoo for cats,” most of the websites are showing you brands from the United States, which can mean two things: (a) it can be expensive, and (b) it may not be available here.
Luckily, I also came across the website called PerroMart when I was searching for dog kibbles and Luna’s specific dry food brand (First Mate). Fortunately, PerroMart sells Earthbath and the price is rather reasonable as compared to the options on Lazada and Shopee. You can also get 5% off your new (and, if not mistaken, recurring) order(s). They are located in Jaya One and they use Skynet for delivery.
My experience with a parcel of 13kg dog kibble, 1 shampoo and 2 Greenies snack was quick, safe and speedy. Nothing was wrong with the parcel at all. The only downside is that they are slow with responses, which I believe is due to the lack of manpower due to the pandemic. They contacted me about a week later to say that the kibble I order was purchased by someone who walked in and bought all of the outstanding packs. It was disappointing but they gave me replacement options for the same size and processed the order immediately after the call. Overall, I am still alright with PerroMart’s services and I am really happy I got my hands on the shampoo!

At first, when I bought this, I thought she would smell like stale oatmeal that is half wet and half dry. When I received it, I quickly opened the cap and took a sniff. “It was decent”, was what I thought.
When I applied it onto my cat, it quickly lathered up and well. There was no problem with creating a creamy and bubbly lather. The scent was still wasn’t at its full potential yet since she was freaking out in the toilet for a bit. The best part comes when the fur is dried.
Her coat is so smooth and it smelled so amazing. It was like smelling a baby that just had a shower. I couldn’t stop rubbing my face on the side of her belly! She smelled so good, I couldn’t let go of her without sniffing! The scent lasted a little over a week and Earthbath has a spitz option for the same scent as well. However, PerroMart does not sell it at the moment.
