Why cat grooming is important
Cats are known for being extremely clean and tidy, and they groom themselves at every opportunity. But as a responsible pet parent, you can give your cat a helping hand. This benefits your kitty and you at the same time.
Some of the main advantages of cat grooming include:
1. Keeping your cat tidy and comfortable
You want your cat to look great, and this is made easier with regular grooming. From brushing to bathing and trimming their hair and nails, there are many things you can do to help your cat perfect their grooming routine. Your cat will be the envy of Instagram!
Regular grooming is particularly important for long-haired cats as their fur can easily get tangled. Matted fur is extremely uncomfortable for your pet, and it can even cause pain and discomfort to their skin. Even if your cat has short hair, grooming is important as it helps to prevent excess shedding. It also reduces the risk of hairballs as your cat will swallow less fur when they groom themselves.
2. Removing pollutants from outside
If your cat goes outdoors regularly, their fur can attract all kinds of substances, some of which might be sticky or smelly. These can be difficult for your cat to remove by themselves, so brushing and bathing your cat regularly can help. If your cat really doesn’t like being bathed – and some really don’t – then you can consider using cat bathing wipes or a spritzer spray to keep your cat’s coat clean and remove any unpleasant odours.
Your kitty will be much more loveable if they look and smell great at all times!
3. Maintaining your cat’s health and wellbeing
You want the very best for your cat, and so do we. This is why we offer an extensive range of cat grooming supplies to help you keep your cat in the very best of health.
Grooming your cat on a regular basis is one of the best ways of spotting parasites such as fleas and ticks. These can be very uncomfortable for your cat. Spotting these problems early means that they can be removed and treated safely, so your cat can live life to the full and feel on top of the world!
In addition, cat grooming helps to keep your kitty’s skin and coat in great condition. Regular brushing distributes the natural oils throughout your cat’s skin and fur, so their coat will be glossy and healthy, and their skin is less likely to become dry.
4. Keeping your cat’s paws comfortable
How often do you trim your cat’s nails? Most cats can’t wear their nails down sufficiently without getting some help from you. If the nails get too long, they can be very uncomfortable for your pet, as well as painful for you if your cat jumps onto your knee and starts kneading you!
This is why it’s important to keep some nail trimmers or clippers in your cat grooming bag, and give your kitty’s nails a trim whenever they get too long. Your cat will thank you for it!
5. Creating a more pleasant home environment
If you brush and bathe your cat regularly, they will shed less fur. This makes your home cleaner and more pleasant. It also makes life much easier for people who are allergic to cats, as it is often the cat’s fur or the dander they produce when grooming themselves that set off allergies in humans.
However, all cats will shed some fur around the home, regardless of how often you groom them. This is why it’s a good idea to invest in a lint roller, which you can use on your clothes and furniture to remove any excess cat hairs. Luckily, we include lint rollers in our collection of cat grooming products online! We take care of owners as well as pets, ensuring you and your cat can have the happiest possible life together.
6. Helping with your cat’s socialisation
Some cats don’t particularly like being handled by humans, particularly when a cat first comes to live with you. The transition to a new environment can be overwhelming for your pet, so it’s important to build up a strong bond with your cat as quickly as possible. Cat grooming can be a great way to do this as it helps to socialise your pet and gets them used to being handled by people.
Ideally, you should start grooming your cat while they are still a kitten. We sell cat grooming products that are specially formulated for young animals, so you can give your kitten the best possible care appropriate for their age. However, if you have adopted an older cat, you should still get them used to being groomed as soon as they come to live with you. This process will help to build up trust between you and strengthen the bond you share.
Using a grooming mitt or massager is a great way to start as the cat will feel as if he or she is being stroked, while you are still effectively brushing their fur. In time, most cats come to love the feeling of being groomed as it leaves them feeling more comfortable and cared for. It also means your pet gets to spend quality time with you, which is important for both of you.
