Tips & Tricks for grooming.

Where should I groom my cat?

Most people prefer to groom their cat when they’re sitting down with the cat in their lap, but it’s easier to have the cat on your level. 

Ideally, you should groom your cat when he/she lies down on a table so your cat feels high up and ‘safe’. Don't forget to place your cat on a non-skid mat, so he/she can’t run away. But again: these are only tips, and whatever works for you and your cat is fine!

How can I prevent my cat from shedding a lot?

Unfortunately, shedding is a natural process and there is little you can do to stop this. You can, however, partially control where the loose hair ends up by brushing your cat frequently during shedding season, particularly during spring when their heavy winter coat is shedded.

My cat flees when I try to groom her, what can I do about this?

Some cats don’t enjoy being brushed or groomed at all, and they will need some extra restraint for their much-needed care. Of course, you should only resort to these techniques when a grooming session or nail clipping is necessary for your health or the health of your cat. 

The safest way to restrain your kitty is the ‘purrito’ technique, which is especially useful for clipping the nails or washing/grooming the rear or head. You can make a ‘purrito’ by wrapping a towel around your cat, making sure the legs are trapped inside and ensuring the towel is wrapped tight enough to stop your kitty from wriggling around too much.

Do shorthaired cats even need grooming? 

While shorthaired cats don’t require as much grooming as longhaired cats, they will certainly benefit from regular brushing sessions. Shorthaired cats also shed hair and will need their nails clipped, and they can also suffer from hairballs or mats if their coat isn’t kept in pristine condition.

Which set should I get?

If you have a pedigree cat, you can easily look up the grooming requirements of the breed and make a choice based on that information. Most regular domestic cats, however, are shorthaired and will benefit from the Shorthair Grooming Set.

If you aren’t certain whether you have a longhaired or shorthaired cat, ask one of the Scampers Pet Care Advisors.
