Do it when you are both in the mood.......


Cats are pretty good at looking after themselves but a good groom helps with moulting and knots.


  • choose the right time for a groom, maybe after eating when your cat is chilled out.
  • start with small sessions, reward with praise and treats. 

Short Haired Cats

  • First, use a metal comb and work through her fur from head to tail.

  • Next, use a bristle or rubber brush to remove dead and loose hair.

  • Be extra-gentle near her chest and belly.

           Useful Tools


  • Fine tooth comb

  • Slicker brush

  • Matt breaker

  • Shed Master

  • Good quality cat shampoo

  • Treats

  • Patience

If your cat has long hair, you will need to brush every day:

  • Start by combing her belly and legs; be sure to untangle any knots.

  • Next, brush her fur in an upward motion with a bristle or rubber brush.

  • To brush her tail, make a part down the middle and brush the fur out on either side.

 bathing your cat

If your cat’s coat becomes greasy and oily, she’ll benefit from a bath. Use a mild shampoo that’s safe to use on cats, and follow these easy steps:

  • give your pet a good brushing to remove all dead hair and mats

  • Place a rubber bath mat in a sink or tub to provide secure footing.

  • Put your cat in a tub or sink that has been filled with about 3 to 4 inches of lukewarm water.

  • Gently massage in shampoo, working from head to tail.

  • Thoroughly rinse with a spray hose or pitcher; again, avoid the ears, eyes and nose

  • Dry your pet with a large towel.
