Cat Grooming: A Primer on Keeping Kitty Clean

Cat Grooming: A Primer on Keeping Kitty Clean

Grooming your cat does more than just keep your cat looking her best. It's also an opportunity to bond with your cat as well as inspect her body for lumps, ticks and tender spots.

Some cats require more grooming than others. Generally, the more fur a cat has, the more grooming she will require. Senior cats require more grooming because they groom themselves less meticulously as they age.

If you acclimate your cat to the grooming process as early as possible, grooming can be incident-free. No matter whether your cat is a longhair, shorthair or no-hair, she will require at least some grooming periodically to keep her happy and healthy.

If your cat simply won't allow you to groom her, engage the services of a professional groomer.

Brushing

The frequency with which you brush your cat is determined by the length and thickness of the coat as well as the time of year. Frequent brushing is essential to keep your cat from getting hairballs which can sometimes require surgery to remove.

Brush shorthaired cats once weekly and longhaired cats every other day. When the warm weather hits in the Spring, you may need to groom more often as your cat sheds her winter coat. As a rule of thumb, if you pet your cat and fur comes out, she needs brushing.

A tool like the FURminator® is especially effective at removing hair, but care should be taken when using it. Don't start by enthusiastically raking your cat's backbone and drawing blood. Gently stroke her, then draw the brush across the very top of her coat without catching any hair in the teeth or bristles. Concentrate on getting her used to the feel of the brush or comb. Then gradually work the brush more deeply into the coat, stopping short of raking the scalp. Don't force it, and stop when your cat has had enough.

If you have several cats with varying coats, you may need more than one type of brush or comb. Don't assume that what works for one will work for all. You may have to try several different brush or comb types before finding one that works well on a particular cat.

Some cats have hyper-sensitive areas, especially on the back, so take care and watch your cat's body language to ensure you don't get bitten or scratched. If you notice her pinning her ears back, take a break and continue later.

Removing Mats

Mats are painful to your cat and can restrict movement, so they should be removed as soon as you notice them (before they become impossible to remove).

If you brush your longhaired cat every other day, it will obviate the need to remove mats. But inevitably, every longhaired cat will develop them, and you'll need to be adept at removing them without harming your cat.

The safest way to remove mats is with clippers. Have a helper hold the cat still while you shave away the mat.

If you don't have clippers you can use scissors, but exercise caution so that you don't harm the cat. Before you attempt the scissor method, have a vet tech teach you how to do it properly...

The Five Essential Cat Grooming Tools

The Five Essential Cat Grooming Tools

"I love cats because I enjoy my home, and little by little they become its visible soul." --Jean Cocteau

One would hope that visible soul Mr. Cocteau is referencing would not include loose balls of cat hair, rolling around your floor like so many furry tumbleweeds. A groomed cat will yield a fur-free home and a contented pet. To achieve that goal, you need the proper tools.

There are more than five cat grooming tools, but the items that should be essential to any cat owner's home include:

  • Nail clippers
  • Bristle brush
  • Fine tooth comb
  • Toothbrush
  • Pet wipes
  • You might also consider purchasing a flea comb, but most cat owners today rely on monthly anti-flea control products such as Advantage or Revolution, or they keep their cats indoors permanently so they have no chance to encounter fleas.

    Why Nail Clippers?

    Nail clippers are inexpensive (usually under $10), easy to use and the quickest way to make sure your cat's natural scratching tendencies don't result in shredded upholstery or screen doors. A scratching post or platform will not be enough to keep the sharp tips from forming on your cat's claws. The surgical procedure of removing the cat's claws is never recommended and in many locations no longer allowed.

    There are a variety of clippers to choose from but most fall into the "guillotine" safety tool bucket, where the nail is inserted into a small opening and a slight squeeze cuts the tip. Cat claw scissors are also available, and they generally have blunted ends to prevent cutting accidents for both pet and owner.

    Types Of Brushes And Combs

    There are dozens of brush types to choose from. Some are designed to groom specific types of cats (long hair vs. short hair for example) or to accomplish specific goals (remove dander or under coat). The bristles on a cat brush can be hard, soft, wire or pin type. A slicker brush is a flat rectangular platform covered with slender steel bristles. It can be used on all cat types and most cats love it. Cats groomed in the same place every day with this tool learn to seek for it and they practically beg to be brushed. If cats were dogs, they would fetch this tool and bring it to you while you are watching Animal Planet.

    Rubber grooming pads and grooming gloves that fit over the hand are also available. These provide a chance to massage your cat's skin and they are effective at removing dead hair from cats with short coats. Combs are effective too. They are either fine-toothed (sometimes known as a flea comb) or wide tooth. It may be necessary to work slowly with a comb and sprinkle talcum powder to gently work hair mats out of a long-haired cat's coat.

    Time To Start Brushing Your Cat's Teeth

    Many owners who faithfully brush their kitties several times a week may not know that cats require dental care, just like humans. Here's a great wake-up call: cats that have heavy deposits of tartar, tooth decay and possible gum disease will need a trip to the vet for profe...
