The Advantage of Brushing Your Cat

Sunday, March 3, 2024

Sometimes cats don’t know what’s good for them.  With the exception of my older cat, most cat don’t like being brushed. My cat loves to be brushed and actually waits for me everyday to brush her. When it comes to grooming, , all cats by nature are very fastidious. Most of them prefer to groom themselves.  Healthy cats spend hours each day grooming and washing.

It’s recommended that long haired cats be brushed and combed once per day. If you have a short haired cat, a weekly brush will do fine. One of the reasons for brushing, is to remove the loose hair which could prevent hairballs.  Regular brushing also keeps their skin and hair in good condition.  Brushing removes dirt and help tangles from forming.  It also helps spread the natural oils on the cats skin. If your cat goes outdoors or on the porch, regular brushing could remove any insects that may have gotten on your cats coat.

So brushing your cat is healthy and useful but don’t expect your cat to see it that way. Just give her a treat or two after brushing to keep her happy!

Remember, pets are family!
