Bathing your Cat
While with the built-in cleaning tools (tongue and teeth) the cat has the capability of cleaning itself. But if somehow your cat lands up being very dirty or smelly, it is her priority to bath her. It is important to schedule the bath when the cat is already very tired this could be generally after a play session. It is recommended to trim the claws for one’s protection. Put some cotton in the ears. Gently massage the kitty with 1-part shampoo and 5-part water with handheld spray. Dry your cat at a warm place and then reward your cat with a treat for a peaceful and successful bathing session.
Brushing your Cat
Brushing is not only necessary for removing dirt, dead hair but also removes skin flakes and stimulates blood circulation, thus improving the overall condition of the skin. For those who brush their cats regularly two times every week will see their kitty glow differently from others. This is specifically very necessary when the cat is ageing and is not able to take care of her grooming needs on her own. Before brushing it is necessary to check the condition of the hair.
The condition of the cat’s skin affects the overall behaviour of the cat. You’ll see this if your cat scratches, chews or licks excessively. A wide range of these could be from seasonal allergies and parasites and taking note of these skin problems and treating them is important.
