Cat Grooming Problems- Cat Fur Mess, Cat Hair Knots, Cat Mats! No need to shave that lion cut!
I will show you how to solve these cat grooming problems, If you will let me.
Once difficult, now easy.
After grooming Longhair cats for over a decade, I feel the number one cat grooming problem is a combination of the knots, the nails, and stud tail v's grease.
Yet all three of these cat grooming problems tie in together causing each grooming problem to at its very worst.
It's like getting hit three times at once. Grease made from the oils that secret from the cats body causes the skin to itch. When the cat itches- they use their nails to scratch. The grease within the skin is also in the coat ( fur) and so by simply scratching- they are creating knots - big massive matts. Some areas of the cats body tends to hold and make grease faster than other areas- such as inside leg areas ( arm pits) , the tail, and behind the ears.
Because the ears are easy to comb and contain normally shorter fur- this areas isn't a big cat grooming problem like stud tail or armpits.
Ok- Let's get started with a few pictures and simple steps on grooming some of the problems areas.
Ok- I've set cat grooming problems mini quick course into 3 parts:
- 1. Combing / Brushing the coat in general
- 2. Stud Tail and other grease pits
- 3. Nail clipping made easy
Top two tools needed for longhair and Persian cats:
A greyhound comb and a soft pin brush (with no tips on the ends)
Use either a brush or a comb for the topside of the body- both work fine.
From the topside looking at this kitty- her coat looks pretty good and one may believe she only needs a combing and all is well.
But to flip her over and see her underside fur - tell a new story. She has some major cat fur problems going on and needs a good pet grooming. See all the curls! This This view shows the underside of her back legs- where knots are usually started first and are the worst.
Those curls represent grease and grease forming. It doesn't take long for the curls to from curls into major knots and even full fledged mats (like a sheep's wool skin rug) These curls are a sign it is time to bath the cat in order to save yourself a trip to be shaved.
Why a bath? Because a bath:
1. helps promote new hair and fur growth
2. reduces shedding
3. makes you have to comb less often
4. and reducing knots from forming!
But you MUST comb before the bath!
Use the comb for problem areas- between the legs, behind the legs- especially the back legs, armpits and up under the chest. Use the brush or the comb for the topside.
