Mats in your cats fur

Saturday, October 20, 2012

To keep you cat feeling good, you need to stop mats from  forming in her fur. Although cats groom  themselves, they need a little help from humans. Brushing and combing a short haired cat  once a week and brushing and combing a long haired cat daily, should do the trick. Most cats do not like being combed. Give your cat a little love before combing her and a treat afterwards. Pay special attention to where mats form like behind the ears, behind the front legs and backlegs and under the collar. If you find mats that do not comb out easily, do not use scissors. Instead, take the cat to a professional groomer. If you brush your cat regularly, it should take only five minutes. Outdoor or older cats make take a little more tme.
