You Will Need
- A cat in need of grooming
- And bristle or rubber cat brush
- A pair of blunt grooming scissors
- A pair of cat nail clippers
- And some cat treats
- A metal comb
- And a fine-toothed flea comb
Brush your cat’s coat in the direction that the fur naturally grows from head to tail. Though cats do clean themselves on a regular basis, a good brushing will help keep Kitty’s hair off your furniture and hairballs out of her stomach.
Brush legs & belly
Brush the cat’s legs and belly, carefully untangling any knots you may find. You can use a pair of blunt scissors to cut out any difficult mats.
If your cat tends to scratch a lot, trim his or her nails every 2 to 6 weeks.
Brush full body
Now that you’ve untangled any problematic fur, give your cat another full-body brush. Then set her free and reward her with all the petting she can handle.
