Proper grooming is crucial for cats' health and well-being. Even short-coated cats require grooming. Grooming helps prevent flea and tick infestations by allowing you to spot and remove them. It also eliminates discomfort by stimulating new hair growth, removing mats, and replenishing the skin and coat. Nail trimming is important to prevent pain and discomfort caused by overgrown nails. Cats' ears need regular cleaning to prevent ear infections and other ailments. Grooming allows you to check for abnormalities on your cat's skin and detect potential health issues early. Taking the time to groom your cat or bringing them to a groomer can make a significant difference in their overall health and happiness.
