Cat Gromming

cats! cats! cats!

Cats are one of the oldest animals that have been kept as domesticated pets in the history of man kind. Cats have been beside man side since the hunting and gathering ages.However back then cats were tolerated, and intentionally domesticated as their main purpose was to hunt and therefore keep off rats that were known to eat the gathered grains.This was the beginning of long and beautiful relationship between humans and the domesticated cat.

Cats are generally more easy to manage than several other domesticated animals as they are known to be more independent than other pets. Cats will mostly do what they want when they want, and most good cat owners understand that the cat is the maser and the human well, the servant! despite this switched role we love our cats dearly.

Grooming cats

Cats are one of the most simple and easiest to groom especially if you own a short-haired or single coat cat. These simply means that your cat has a little fur.Grooming cats is easy to groom because they do most of the grooming themselves. Unlike dogs and other domesticated pets, cats clean themselves by licking their fur. There tongue is very effective in grooming as it has spike like protrusions that act like combs and therefore comb the fur well.However this does not mean cats do not need to be groomed it just means they do not need grooming as often as other pets.

When grooming cats be sure to use mild shampoos that will not dry up their fur or skin, also care for cats by making sure you use shampoos that are able to kill off any bugs that maybe hiding in their fur. Cat grooming is neccesary as they are prone to having insects in there fur because they tend to be adventurous and therefore are exposed to bugs such as fleas which are annoying to the cats. Masage the shampoo into the coat and make sure to let the shampoo work on the fur, therefore give it some time before you wash it off. Rinse the fur thoroughly to make sure all the shampoo out and dry. Rinsing is important because cats lick themselves and you do not want them taking in the shampoo which can be harmful. Make sure to dry the fur well to avoid damp fur that can breed bacteria.

After the bath brush the fur to comb out and remove any lose fur. Is it very important to brush the fur because when the cat licks the fur they tend to swallow the fur and this can be very harmful to your cat. Cat fur balls are known to clog the digestive system and may be fatal to cats. As a result ensure you comb or brush your cat at lest once every week, this will make sure our favorite pet remain health and CUTE!!!
