Can I blow dry my kitten?

+1 vote
I have a long haired kitten and she gets into everything. She returned all muddy the other day after playing outside. I gave her a bath and toweled her dry, but it took a really long time for all her fur to dry off. I was wondering if it would be OK for me to blow dry her fur if something like this happens again

Blot the kitten as dry as possible with as many towels as necessary. Blow drying a kitten could be a terrifying experience to her - the sound of the dryer, the heat, the blowing. If you attempt this, you must be very careful not to burn your kitten. Use the lowest setting, combing (not brushing) the fur as you dry her. If the kitten is really frightened, don't use the dryer.
