1. If the weather permits, it is best to groom the cat outdoors.
When the cat is groomed outdoors, dirt, hair and fleas can be left outside the house, which is also beneficial for those who are allergic to cat hair and dander. If you can't do it outdoors, the best place to go is the porch, the bathroom or the public space inside the house.
2. Check the cat's ears, eyes and cat's claws
Before grooming the cat, take this opportunity to check if the cat's ear, cat's eye and cat's claw are clean and have potential disease.
3. Cat ear care
If your cat is healthy, don't pay too much attention to its ears. Check for dirt inside the ear, use a cotton ball to rub the olive oil and remove the dirt. If the cat is constantly grabbing the ear, it is likely to have an ear disease and see if there are black wax marks in the ear. Another reason why cats always scratch their ears may be that their ears are blocked by deafness. If the cat continues to catch it, the veterinarian should be diagnosed.
4. Cat's eye care
The dirt around the cat's eye can be simply smashed: soak a piece of cotton in warm water and gently wipe the dirt away. The cat's eyes should be bright and clean. If there is inflammation or secretion, the cat may have serious health problems.
5. Wash your face
Long-haired cats tend to have a blocked gland. When this happens, tears flow to the cheeks, leaving unsightly black marks on the face. In order to remove the stains, the cotton balls should be used to dilute the salt water and wipe the hair on the cheeks. If this problem occurs frequently, it is necessary to consult a veterinarian.
6. Check the cat's mouth
Check for tartar on your cat's teeth. Ideally, the cat should be brushed once a week to prevent the formation of tartar. However, your cat may reject this treatment that is detrimental to dignity. If this happens, it is necessary to have the veterinarian remove the tartar and polish it every year.
