Cat Grooming

Get your cat accustomed

If you think that one fine day you will wake up and start giving a bath to your cat, then you are going in the wrong direction. Most cats hate taking a bath and therefore, you will do well to slowly introduce your cat to the whole grooming life.

Choose a time when your cat is usually relaxing. A good time to do this might after a while after your cat has had a sumptuous meal. Start with talking sweetly to your cat and petting it. A few treats will only help you in gaining the confidence of your cat. Initially, there are chances that your cat might be all confused and react defensively but that is just because it does not know what to feel about grooming. In that case, stop for the moment and try later again. Eventually, your kitty will come around.

 

Get down to the grooming

There are multiple ways in which you can groom your cat. We will explain all of them step by step so that you can do it like a pro. Here you go:

 

Brushing

Whether your cat has short or long hair, brushing always helps. Cats do clean their own coats but brushing will help you remove loose hair, dirt, and grease. Plus, cats thankfully seem to like brushing. It makes them feel relaxed and it might turn out to be a good bonding time for you both.

Make sure you use a brush that is meant to be used for the hair type of your cat. You can use a comb too but the suitability needs to be figured out with a comb as well. This will make the brush or comb more effective. Do not try to restrain your cat as this will only make it feel cautious and on guard. Try to approach your cat in a friendly manner and comb gently. Using treats to keep your cat appeased can help you a lot.

 

Bathing

Usually, cats do the work that bathing will do, with their tongues. But if your cat manages to get itself into a sticky situation or is stinking of something, then a bath awaits. The mood of your cat is very important when you give a bath to it. If it is cranky or out of sorts, then bathing is not a good idea and might end up scratching or biting you.

A few things like clean towels, a good quality cat shampoo, a cat conditioner, a rubber mat, etc, need to be kept ready during a bath. You do not want to leave your cat dripping while you go looking for some towels. Be careful not to totally immerse your cat into the water. Keep the head of your kitty above the water and slowly rub the shampoo on the rest of the body.

You can use wet tissues or towels to wipe the face clean. After you have rinsed the body of your cat, make sure you place it in a big towel and let the body dry naturally. Also, never use hot water. Instead, go for warm water that will soothe the body of your cat. 

If you seem to have quite a huge problem in giving a bath to your cat, then do not do this at home. Take your cat to a professional groomer. This will not be as time consuming as giving a bath at home. Plus, it will be less traumatizing for both you and your cat.

 

Trimming

Your cat’s nails need to be trimmed from time to time in order to avoid breaking, problems while walking, infections etc. Remember not to use a nail clipper for humans on your cat. There are clippers available in the market that are specifically designed for cats. Since this process involved cutting of nails, be very precise and careful so as not to injure your cat.

There is a quick underneath every nail which will bleed if any cuts happen on it. So, be careful not to clip the nails too close to the quick. Hold the paw firmly with one hand and clip the nails slowly with the other. If you happen to cause bleeding, then keep an antiseptic or a clotting instrument handy to put it on the cut immediately. Never force your cat to cut its nails because then your cat is sure to offer resistance and might hurt itself in the process.

 

Check for underlying problems

Whenever you groom your cat, make sure you check for any fleas, ticks, or infections in the skin of your cat. It is during grooming that a lot of cat owners figure out many problems that have been hidden under the coat. Some of the common problems are flea infestation, reactions to medicines, bacterial infections, fungal infections, contact dermatitis, loss of fur, etc. These issues are serious and can cause long-term damage. They need to be dealt with immediately.

Usually, problems like tick and fleas can be tackled at home with flea collars, flea oral medicines, regular bathing, and, brushing, etc. However, it is advisable to consult an expert vet before you administer any type of your treatment on your cat. By now, you must be aware of how vital an activity grooming is. From bathing, to brushing, to clipping the nails short, every step if important. So, start with grooming your cat from today and get all the products necessary soon.
