TIP OF THE WEEK
Brushing your cat
Grooming should be an essential part of your cat’s life. If you begin when she is young, she will become accustomed to grooming early in life and it will be easier to groom her as she matures. She may resist at first, but will soon come to enjoy the extra holding and petting you give during grooming time.
For longhaired cats, a long-toothed metal comb and a stiff brush are best. First your should manipulate the hair coat against the way it lays so it is fluffy then brush in the direction of hair growth. Brush shorthaired cats with a soft rubber brush or hand mitt with short bristles. Longhaired cats should be brushed daily and shorthaired cats at least once or twice a week; to help control your cat’s shedding and help prevent hairballs.
A cat sheds to a certain degree all year long, but especially in the spring and fall. Brushing is particularly important during these seasons to help rid your cat’s coat of dead hair. A sleek, lustrous coat reflects the good nutrition and careful good care you give her. Make sure you have your grooming supplies ready when you first get your cat so she can become accustomed to them.
