CAT GROOMING IS A BOOMING TREND
As cat owners learn more about the benefits of regular grooming, cat grooming is a becoming a booming trend. In the past, people only thought dogs needed to be groomed. But cats need grooming just as much as dogs! Cat’s become dirty, greasy and those with thick coats can become matted.
Reduce hairballs by Removing Fur
Cats lick themselves constantly. This habit of licking and swallowing loose fur that goes undigested causes hairballs. In some cases, a hairball can become too big for your cat’s digestive tract and cause a life-threatening blockage. Grooming helps get rid of dead skin, excess fur and reduces hairballs.
Cats enjoy the grooming process when done by a professional
Many people think that cats don’t enjoy the grooming process or getting wet. We have learned that cats don’t mind getting wet once they realize they are not going to drown. In fact, for many, the bathing process calms the cat down as they are stroked and cleaned with warm water and scent-free, all natural bathing products.
At The Mobile Pet Spa, we have been a part of many wonderful cat transformations where cats go from being matted, dirty and greasy, to having clean, flowing, silky coats.
De-Matting needs to be done by a professional, certified feline groomer
If you cat is matted, it is important to seek the help of a professional groomer. There are techniques to remove mats and they are based on the severity of the mats, location, cat’s skin condition and tolerance of the grooming process. Shaving and mat removal should only be done by a trained professional who can safely remove mats. Cat’s skin is thin and extremely delicate and it can be easily cut by sharp razors and scissors.
Mats, tangles and pelted hair is painful. It creates sores, infections and can even be deadly. Cats are unable to move around due to the fur pulling or weighing down their coat. Some are even unable to urinate because the fur is causing a blockage. This can lead to death. Shaving is the only humane way to remove mats. It becomes even more dangerous with cats with health issues or are aggressive, but is the one way to remedy this horrible situation. Prevention, by way of regular maintenance grooming, is the key from that point forward.
