They don't call me Sassy for nothing! So take it from me, the internet's most fabulous feline, grooming is essential to a cat's overall health and wellness. If your catplexion is lackluster, simply follow a few of my favorite tips and tricks and you will start taking double takes at yourself!
Some sources estimate that cats spend between 30 to 50 percent of their days grooming. A girl has to have some secrets, but grooming maintains healthy skin, prevents mats, and even removes dirt and parasites like fleas. In addition, grooming is a comfort behavior often used by cats as a relaxation technique. Every cat has her own unique grooming ritual, which we learn from our moms when we are just kittens. As a result, the toms in my neighborhood all agree that my fur is the cat's meow.
If you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours!:
Every fabulous feline knows that it takes a posse to look this good. Take advantage of your feline groupies and get involved in some mutual grooming. Not only will it reduce your workload but it's a great way to express comfort, companionship, and even love toward your loyal subjects.
Nobody likes a purrma donna:
Who doesn't love to be pampered? Even though I spend much of my day grooming myself, every once in awhile I need a little help from my two-legged friend. My human's opposable thumbs are great for grooming my hard to reach places like my head and neck (ah, the wonders of a gentle scalp massage), behind the ears, and for giving me a good kitty manicure.
