During their day, cats come across germs and can get dirty easily, even though they are known to be to take good care and clean themselves. However, it is important to keep them in a good shape by grooming them regularly.
Here are 8 reasons why to groom your cat. Whether you do it yourself or with an in-home grooming service, here are some things to keep in mind for why it is so important.
1. NAIL TRIMMING
Dull claws cause less damage than sharp ones, feral cats can wear their nails down with concrete and outdoor activities but for domestic cats is a bit difficult. Have their nail trimmed to help them play around comfortably
Grooming your cat frequently stimulates their circulation and can help improve muscle tone.
3. NO NEED TO TAKE THEM TO A SALON
Most cats do not enjoy traveling. They are the rulers of their domain. Using an in-home grooming service like Groomit rather than going to a grooming salon will significantly reduce your cat’s stress level, making the whole process easier.
Groomers can have the opportunity to examine your cat’s eyes, ears, teeth, and nails. During this check, the groomer can identify signs or symptoms that may indicate disease or injury. It is also the perfect time to check for parasites and signs of flea infestation.
5. NO REASON TO GET THEM WET
Most cats generally don’t love the water so it can be helpful to avoid using it, for that reason at Groomit, cats are groomed with dry shampoo. Plus, having it done at home will give your pet a less stressful experience.
6. AVOID EAR INFECTION
Cats need their ears cleaned regularly, especially long-coated cats!
7. HAIR DE-MATTED
A clean cat will keep their fur healthy and avoids matted areas. Sometimes cats struggle when they are brushed. One solution is to ask your groomer to make a lion style haircut, shorter in summer and slightly longer in winter. Fun and functional!
8. IMPROVES SOCIALISATION
Frequent in-home grooming service helps to train your cat to start enjoying grooming sessions and can encourage socialization if they don’t get out much, or you don’t have many visitors.
