Why Do We Need to Groom Cats?

This is a question we get asked regularly here at Smart Cats!

There are plenty of reasons why grooming your cat on a regular basis will contribute to improved hygiene and better overall health. Frequent grooming will:
  • Reduce fur-balls when cats are shedding their coats
  • Loosen matted fur, reducing and often eliminating the soreness, pain, discomfort and even infection that can come with tangled fur
  • Reduce moulting
  • Improve your cat’s circulation
  • Keep nails trim and tidy
  • Enable us to identify fleas, ticks, cuts and underlying skin conditions and treat them accordingly
It goes without saying that a well-groomed cat will also help you keep your clothes and your home clean, smelling great and free from excessive hair and dander, which will lead to a more manageable environment for those who suffer from cat allergies.
