MANY PEOPLE ASK...
Why cat grooming is so important. They usually say: "Don't cats groom themselves?". Well, we are here to clear the misconception. Please know that cats LICK themselves. They do not GROOM themselves.
They cannot trim their nails, brush their hair, find the right shampoo for their skin and then bathe themselves. They don't clean their ears or identify ear mites when that problem occurs.
But most importantly, they are unable to verbally communicate with you and say: "Hey mom, dad, I know you love me so very much, but life gets busy sometimes, I get that. It seems like I'm getting a few tangles in my coat right here (then they point to their belly or armpits etc). Can you please brush them out before they become really painful and then it's too late to brush them out?"
HOW DOES THE PROBLEM START?
These tangles that our sweet kitty in this story is talking about can happen to any cat with long or even short hair. YES, I said short hair...
What happens is the oil from their skin mixes with the dead hair. The dead hair then becomes trapped if not brushed out in time. That in turn causes what we call in the grooming world "MATTED HAIR".
Matted hair can be very scary (if it's happened to your cat you know what we are talking about). The reason why it can be so scary is because it kind of creeps up on you. It seems like they are fine one day and matted the next. And by the time you realize it, it's too late. It can't be brushed. Our kitty cats get in a bad mood, and rightly so since those mats are now pulling on their skin and can be very painful and uncomfortable for them. This makes the entire family sad and concerned.
WELL, WHAT CAN BE DONE??
