“My cat has short hair and licks himself. He doesn’t need to be groomed since he grooms himself.”
We hear this constantly. Yes, your cat licks himself in his saliva. However, does he get clean. We’re talking squeaky clean right down to the skin with a de-greasing cat-specific shampoo, warm bath, blow dry and comb out? Cat’s shed regardless of the length of hair. In fact, short-haired cats have shorter hair, so it takes less time for the follicle to grow, so that means more shedding! Your cat will ingest the fur and cough up hairballs. Your cat walks on the floor picking up dust, dirt all the while shedding fur and skin cells. And you share your bed and chairs and couch with all those things!
If you are bothered by fur all over the house or just want help grooming your cat, call us! We are the cat grooming experts.
How often should I groom my cat?
Long haired cats, senior cats (who have problems reaching certain areas to lick) and clients who can’t tolerate the dander and fur around the house are all candidates for 4-6 week grooms.
Long haired cats tend to get matted because their fur is not combed out. It is very important when cats are shedding which happens year-round that they get groomed. This is particularly the case in Spring when cat’s are losing their coats, that cats need to be groomed every 4 weeks.
Pure bred cats like Persians, Himalayans, Maine coons and Ragdolls need regular grooming to prevent mats and hairballs. Siamese cats are also another breed which needs regular grooming.
