Grooming 101

Now that summer is right around the corner, Maizy is starting to shed like crazy. This will annoyingly result in hair everywhere in my house if I do not keep her groomed. When owning a cat, long haired or short, regular grooming is vital when it comes to their health. The meaning of grooming regularly will fluctuate if the cat has long or short hair. A long haired cat will require daily grooming, while short hair cats are more like 2-3 times out of the week. The process of grooming should only take a couple of minutes, it should not be a long process.

There are many health benefits that come with maintaining your kitty’s coat. Brushing through the fur will help distribute natural oils throughout the skin and coat keeping it healthy. Furthermore, the less loose hair that remains in the coat will lesson the chance of your cat having hairballs. This is a “win win” for both you and your cat! When frequently grooming, you’re able to notice any fleas, ticks, or skin abnormalities which is necessary for keeping up with your cats health and being a good owner.

Nobody likes a hairy blanket on the bed or on the couch. There is a simple solution to avoiding the cat shed going all over the place. Purchasing this brush will greatly help avoid a messy and hairy household. The brush can be difficult to use in the beginning, especially with some cats, as they adjust and get used to it. Personally Maizy never had too hard of a time, but I always give her a treat after just so next time, she behaves even better than the last. It can be a tedious process, but it is worth it, especially with cats that shed a lot, which is most.
