Your cat and your vacuum cleaner!
Have you ever tried to groom your cat with your vacuum cleaner? One writer says that her cat thinks that the vacuum cleaner is especially for her use! The writer turns it on in another room and slowly lets her cat arrive towards her for the treat! This habit started when she gave her kitty some catnip and followed it with vacuuming! It turned into a daily joy session!
For long hair cats you can use a curry comb. It is more effective than a brush!
Short hair cats will need shampooing at least once a year; long hair cats will need shampooing twice a year.
