How Much Should You Brush Your Cat?

catbrushedMy older cat Molly, has to be brushed everyday. This is her choice not mine. Every day when I get out of the shower, she’s there meowing and waiting to be brushed.  The longer your cats hair, the more that she should be brushed.  Another factor to consider is the type of hair that your cat has. There are three types of hair on most cats.There are ‘guard hairs’, ‘awn hairs’ and ‘down hairs.’  Some breeds of cats only have some of them.  As a  general rule of thumb, you need  to brush enough to remove the hairs that your cat sheds but but not brush so much that you start stripping healthy hair.

Set of a schedule and brush your cat on a regular basis. It helps remove hair that your cat sheds and also helps prevent hairballs. It also helps remove dead skin.

Remember, your pets count!
