Cat care is one of the most important chores in the lives of a cat owner. It’s about loved consideration and dedication to your pet’s health and well-being. A happy cat is a happy cat.
Grooming the cat is an important part of the process of grooming your cat. The grooming of the cat is an important process that involves cleaning the cat’s ears, tail, coat, teeth, fur, and paws.
Ear cleaning is done before bathing the cat. Ear cleaning helps remove any excess earwax or other debris that may accumulate on the ears. If you are concerned about making an ear cleaning appointment, it’s a good idea to visit your veterinarian first. It’s also helpful to go to a vet who is familiar with your cat as this can help him/her schedule a proper ear cleaning time.
Grooming the cat can also be done outside the home. You can hire a groomer to trim the cat’s coat. Pet stores sell trimmers, but you can also use a pair of scissors. Shaving the cat’s head is another method that can be done, but be careful not to cut too deeply or blunt the blade. And remember to be gentle when trimming the cat’s head, even though it may be a new experience for you.
Nail trimming is used to cut away any debris that may be hanging on the cat’s nails. Again, be gentle when you are doing this; being rough can damage the cat’s nails or cause infection.
To be able to trim the cat’s coat, you will need scissors, a coat, and a wad of newspaper. Get into the habit of cleaning the cat’s coat as often as the litter box needs to be changed. If you have two cats, divide the grooming time up so that each cat gets a day of their own. Remember to keep the toilet paper as clean as possible; with a dirty cat’s litter box, that may seem silly, but it can get pretty messy.
A happy cat is a happy cat. However, getting his/her nails trimmed often will ensure that they stay healthy and shiny and prevent them from damaging furniture, carpeting, etc.
A cat’s nails are beautiful and smooth but can become damaged over time. This happens to humans all the time, and a quick fix is available. Feline nails that have been exposed to moisture, temperature changes, chewing, scratching and biting can get damaged, sometimes deeply.
Scratching, chewing and biting can damage the nails as well as the skin, causing painful sores. Biting also can lead to infections if not taken care of right away.
To prevent scratching, try to restrict the cat’s activities when it has just had a bath. If you can do this, you may want to place the wet towel inside a plastic bag for overnight use. Doing this will restrict the cat’s activity while still allowing it to relieve itself.
Dry her off as soon as it’s dry, and don’t try to take her to the vet to have the cat’s nails trimmed if she is scratching on the furniture. Have her sprayed with a bitter-tasting liquid and have her sit in a crate until the smell fades.
At the same time, when you take her outside, go to a location where she can get fresh air on a day that has no wind. Then, she will have less stress. Take some treats out to her as a reward for going outside.
