-What's in the Box?-
What's In the Box:
- The rubber acts like a magnet to attract loose hair, it is flexible and light which is easy on a cats skin and reduces over stimulation from brushing, removes loose hair and massages skin, is the best brush for sensitive areas
- A slicker is a flat metal brush that has small, fine wire bristles that are bent at a slight angle. Wire slickers are good at removing any loose fur.
- A soft-bristled brush is good for removing dirt, debris, dead skin cells and loose hair from your cat’s coat. It’s also nice to use at the end of a grooming session to distribute the oils through the coat, which makes it shiny and smooth.
- A flea comb isn’t just for fleas! They can also be used as a ‘precision brush’. Flea combs are great at removing any loose debris in your cats coat. Because the teeth are close together, they will also remove lots of dead hair. A flea comb is best used at the end of your brushing routine as a finishing tool.
- Trimming a cats nails regularly prevents a cats nails from being little pointy needles, helps with paw health and discourages negative clawing behavior!
- Helps relax your cat or help get their energy out through play to make them more open to being brushed. Can also just be given as a fun treat after a grooming session!
-How to Brush your Cat-
How to Brush Your Cat:
It's best to brush your short haired cat at least once a day, but even weekly brushing is helpful. Follow these easy steps:
- Make sure your cat is comfortable and receptive to being touched.
- Begin with areas where your cat likes to be pet, usually on the back, between their ears, or under the chin
- Brush with the grain, and concentrate on one area at a time.
- As your cat becomes receptive to being brushed, you can slowly make your way toward more sensitive areas.
- If they become uncomfortable, stop for a while, then you can continue when they return back to being comfortable.
- Over time, your cat will become accustomed to being brushed and will enjoy it!
Finish each brushing session with some catnip or another special treat so they start to associate being brushed with good things! See our full article about brushing cats HERE
