Basics Of Grooming Your House Cat – The Items You’ll Need

Pussies are interesting creatures. They share a history with humans that rivals dogs. Some cultures have history’s that portray cat’s as good warm hearted creatures, while other cultures have folktales that tell stories about pussies being the roots of all that’s noxious. On one hand cat’s are warm creatures that look forward to cuddling and loving their humans, on the other hand the same cat can go for weeks without ever looking at its human.

One of the most fascinating things about cats is their cleanness. Cats practically house train themselves, just show them where the litter box and they are ready to use it, if you keep the litter box clean you cat will reward you by never making a mess in your house, (although some do prefer potted plants to the litter box). Most cats are contented to waste hours cleaning themselves, using their tongues to get rid of the dust from their bodies and to straighten their hair. Watching a cat bathe itself can be a hypnotic experience for its owners.

We are so used to our house cats taking care of their own hygienic needs that we sometimes forget that they, just like dogs, need us to help with their grooming. It is the kitty owners responsibility to be certain the cat’s nails are trimmed, that any especially unpleasant mats and knots are removed from their coats, and that their teeth are kept clean and freed from tarter and rot. In order to make sure that your cat is properly groomed you need a very basic set of equipment, your toolbox of cat grooming supplies.

The fist item you want in your pussy grooming box of tools is a brush. This brush have bristles that are tough enough to remove mats and waste from your cats coat, but still soft enough that they will not pull and tear at your cat’s fragile skin. If you have got a pussy-cat that appears to be especially subject to getting massive knots in its coat you will wish to invest in a specially designed mat spreader.

Unless you have had your house cat declawed your moggy must have its nail clipped. In natural habitats moggies need their sharpened claws to defend themselves and to help them capture and kill prey, Wild pussies keep their nail from becoming excessively long by walking about on hard surfaces that wear down the nail, keeping it sharpened. The only real use house cats have for their claws is scratching furniture and occasionally swiping at their human caretakers. It is the caretakers responsibility to make sure the cat’s nail get trimmed whenever they get long. If you have never trimmed a cat’s nails watch a professional pet groomer or your cat’s veterinarian trim your cat’s nail first.

Oral hygiene is a vital part of your cat’s overall fitness. It is important to make sure that your cat’s teeth are clean and free of signs of decay. Consult your cat veterinarian will be in a position to help you choose products designed for optimum feline health.
