Four Benefits of Grooming for Cats

Often cat owners see grooming as a “dog owner thing.” Given the hours a day cats spend licking, primping, and otherwise engaged in cleaning themselves, it is a reasonable assumption; however, cats also require routine bathing. The horrors associated with bathing cats have been unfairly earned, yet any cat owner can show a scar or two from trying to get that caked mud from Mr. Kitty’s typically pristine coat. Monthly grooming with an experienced professional not only reduces the stress of bathing sessions but have several other benefits.

Reduces Anxiety of Being Handled

Grooming is a natural bonding activity which, when properly carried out, can encourage the cat to become more open to relationships with individuals with whom he is not familiar. It is very important that this is done in a relaxed and safe environment. If grooming is a stressful affair for Mr. Kitty, he may become more anxious and suspicious. Relinquishing Mr. Kitty to the care of a professional groomer ensures a relaxing and positive experience.

Reduces Pet Dander

Regular grooming removes dead skin cells, dirt, and other debris from Mr. Kitty’s coat. The reduction of these objects trapped in his coat means less dander and allergens released into your home. Regular grooming and brushing help to reduce the amount of cat hair lingering in your cleaned laundry, on your air filters, and in the air you breathe.

Healthier Coat and Skin

Brushing a cat removes foreign debris and tangles from the coat. Tangles can lead to matting and skin irritation, both may prevent the cat from cleaning himself. Grooming opens Mr. Kitty’s pores, much like exfoliation does for your own skin, which releases oils to nourish the skin leaving his coat silky, glistening, and soft. Regular grooming also stimulates the circulation resulting in improved muscle tone – because Mr. Kitty needs to look his best when catching those house pests.

Reduces Fur Ingested

Hairballs can become difficult for a cat to process and result in a lethargic or sick pet until he is able to pass the obstruction. To prevent this obstacle, it is best to reduce the amount of hair consumed by Mr. Kitty. Removing loose fur from your cat’s coat during grooming allows Mr. Kitty to groom without ingesting as much fur, reducing the amount, size, and harm of hairballs.
