Long haired cats are lovely to look at, but that fluffy fur coat comes with a commitment to regular grooming. When you think about it, cats are famous for their self-grooming and rarely need prompting from outsiders. From bathing and nail trimming to breed cuts and styling, Beautiful Beast Mobile Pet Grooming can make sure your cat looks and feels great.
Benefits of Grooming:
- Prevents matting and fecal trappings
- Stimulates circulation
- Improves tone
- Minimizes hairballs
- Insulates the body more efficiently and stimulates glands at the base of the hairs which act to waterproof the coat.
While your cat is capable of grooming itself, bathing and grooming your cat provides the opportunity for us to check if they have any external parasites and skin wounds.
Start grooming your cat as early as possible, ideally when they are still a kitten and make it part of a regular routine. Busy cat owners may find that clipping their long-haired cats into a lion cut can help cut down on the amount of grooming that is required and helps to reduce “fur balls.”
Your cat’s nails should retract and tuck underneath her or him. If you can see the nails or if they are snagging on furniture or carpet then they need a trim.
Depending on your cat’s grooming habits and the environment, the need for ear cleaning may vary. Some cats are more bothered by ear mites. These mites are tiny parasites that live inside the ear canal of an infected animal. Mites also stimulate the wax producing glands inside the ear canal. The result is a black, crusty build-up in the ears that resembles coffee grounds. This discharge is made of blood, wax, debris, and mites themselves. Because the mites thrive off the ear wax, by purging out the wax, you can also remove the problem of the mites.
