To properly groom your cat, brush it in the direction that its hair grows. Otherwise, along with a few scratches, you’ll likely have a furious cat to contend with.

An occasional bath is an important component in the grooming routine for your cat.

Always move carefully to avoid puncturing or scratching sensitive skin on your cat.

Not only will shedding be decreased, but brushing will be less difficult and smoother through the use of cat grooming gloves. Find a pair that can be washed in the machine. You should also be able to utilize it to get rid of that unwanted cat hair that gets everywhere.

The difference between a well-groomed, healthy cat and one with tangled, matted hair can be the right cat grooming equipment. Always use your grooming tools in a comforting and pleasurable manner for your cat.

This might seem like a strange question, but… I am afraid to wash my cats. The most tramatic memory I have was the last time I washed our older cat, It screamed and yelled and since then we have been afraid to wash them. So would it be easier and good to use a wet towel?
