Grooming your cat on a frequent basis is an integral part of providing for its health and comfort.
To avoid hairballs and shed fur, cats should be brushed on a regular basis.
Start at the top with a comb or brush with delicate bristles, and work your way down the body.
If you keep your cat's claws trimmed, it will be less likely to scratch up your belongings or your family.
It's best to clean your cat's ears with a cotton ball or a soft cloth rather than sticking anything into the ear cavity.
It's not essential to bathe your cat very often unless it gets into something smelly or dirty.
The presence of fleas and ticks on your cat can be detected through routine cleaning.
