How to bathe a cat without putting it in water?

My cat is smelly. Not just smelly, he is downright horrifying. He refuses to be bathed in water, and I would prefer to keep myself unharmed by trying to wash him. Most people just say to rub him down with a wet towel or something, but he is too dirty for that. How do I deep clean a cat?

I did not know that...Wrap your kitty in a towel and then bathe it. Use soap on eeh towel and the kitty, it takes a little longer to rinse, but it stops you from getting scratched.

You can wrap his paws in something before you bathe him to keep him from harming you when he freaks out. But that he's so smelly may mean something else is going on. Have you taken him to the vet lately?

Lower the cat in a room temperature tub that is 2inchs deep, gently poor water on the cat with your hands,should work

They have dry shampoo at pet stores to use on some pets, like this one http://www.google.com/imgres?q=dry+pet+shampoo+cats&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=1028&bih=857&tbm=isch&tbnid=apFqZQgiuo6zWM:&imgrefurl=http://www.arcatapet.com/item.cfm%3Fcat%3D14426&docid=zwQ5U1WPycprEM&imgurl=http://www.arcatapet.com/fullsize/14426.jpg&w=400&h=400&ei=ypQtUIPgHbCw0AHfq4CQAQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=661&vpy=140&dur=2866&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=171&ty=79&sig=104600829462814452402&page=1&tbnh=146&tbnw=133&start=0&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0,i:84 if its anything like the one for small animals, all you do is sprinkle the powder on the animal, then brush the animal until all the powder is gone/faded
