Brushing your cat

Grooming should be an essential part of your cat’s life. If you begin when she is young, she will become accustomed to grooming early in life and it will be easier to groom her as she matures.  She may resist at first, but will soon come to enjoy the extra holding and petting you give during grooming time.

For longhaired cats, a long-toothed metal comb and a stiff brush are best. First your should manipulate the hair coat against the way it lays so it is fluffy then brush in the direction of hair growth. Brush shorthaired cats with a soft rubber brush or hand mitt with short bristles. Longhaired cats should be brushed daily and shorthaired cats at least once or twice a week; to help control your cat’s shedding and help prevent hairballs.

A cat sheds to a certain degree all year long, but especially in the spring and fall. Brushing is particularly important during these seasons to help rid your cat’s coat of dead hair. A sleek, lustrous coat reflects the good nutrition and careful good care you give her. Make sure you have your grooming supplies ready when you first get your cat so she can become accustomed to them.

Mischief was adopted from the Animal Facility in Upper Marlboro about 4 1/2 years ago. He had a wonderful home with a fluffy bed to relax on but unfortunately things took a turn for the worst. His human companion developed a severe allergy his hair/dander and the doctor said she must get rid of the cat. Mischief is now back at the animal facility waiting for someone who will give him the love he deserves. We hope it's you. Please visit him or call the facility at 301-780-7201 and ask for Mischief.
