Cats sometimes require a complete shavedown due to matting or excessive coat. Here are some photos from start to finish for you to see the procedure. Every cat is an individual and every cat will react differently to grooming. It is important to read a cat's body language during grooming to create a safe and enjoyable experience. We love cats!
Brushes to use when grooming your cat: Soft slicker, comb or furminator.
STEP ONE: Removing the coat before the bath.
. . . ready for the bath.
STEP TWO: It is always a good and safe idea to trim a cat's toenails before the bath.
STEP THREE: Bathing a cat can be enjoyable, but always take precaution by keeping them turned away from you in the tub.
STEP FOUR: Drying a cat begins at the head and ends at the tail. A gentle approach makes for a happy cat.
Examining your cat's teeth during grooming time is a good habit to get into. Good oral care is important for cats, too.
STEP FIVE: Blow drying a cat helps to remove dander and loose hair after a bath. Always take precaution and use a lower setting as it keeps kitty happy and is less tramatic.
STEP SIX: Finish clip and scissoring head. This cat is all ready to show off his new haircut and is happy.
