More tidbits about cats: You’ve probably seen your kitty washing itself several times a day, but if it is like most cats, it will appreciate, and sometimes need, a little help from you. You can get your pet used to being brushed when it’s a young kitten. Grooming should be an enjoyable experience for both of you, so schedule brushing sessions when your cat’s relaxed; maybe after feeding or exercise.
If you think it’s time for a bath and you don’t want to tackle the job, you can always call a pet groomer. By making sure your kitty is brushed regularly, it will make bathing so much easier for the you or the groomer and a much more positive experience for your kitty.
