Depends on the cat
First rule is do not let her hear you turn the water on! Already have the sink or tub filled with a few inches. I suggest a kitchen sink because there isn't as much room for her to jump around and it's easier for you to have control when you are standing.
Second, do not wash her head or ears! If you want to meet the really nasty side of your cat, get some water in her ears and see what she does to you!
I'm one of the few groomers in our area who does cats, and experience has taught me, one hand on the shoulders, one hand gently scrubs and rinses, no fast, loud or sudden movements, and pre-warm your towel in the dryer
