Even if your little kitty knows how to clean itself up, based on the most unlikely positions, and the greatest licks, here are some tips for grooming your cat.
If your cat has long hair, you must brush it every day. A tedious but essential task if you do not want to have to mow it with a lawnmower (joking)!
If your cat has short hair, a soft brush or comb once a week is enough.
A little tip: wash your cat with a white cloth, this way, if it has fleas, eggs or anything else, they will fall onto the fabric and you will be able to see them.
Bath. Nightmare for 90% of cats
Unfortunately, cats must pass through the bath from time to time... but never more than twice a year!
When washing your cat, beware of claws and teeth!
The best place to wash your cat is in the kitchen or bathroom sink.
Put a mat at the bottom, run water at 39 degrees - a few inches is enough!
Mix a bit of mild baby shampoo. Hold the cat firmly by the scruff of the neck and start to wet gradually, trying to reassure them. Once thoroughly wet, rub their hair, then rinse thoroughly. Dry them with a large towel or a hair dryer, but they can be very afraid! Do not let them heat up too much!
Finish by brushing, and remember: do not perfume, cats hate strong smells!
