Is Cat Grooming Really Necessary for Most Cats?

It’s not surprising that dog grooming is seen as more necessary and is much more common than cat grooming. For one, there aren’t really any “inside only” dogs, and cats actually spend much of their time grooming themselves. When a cat has physical or emotional issues, though, they may cut back or stop grooming themselves altogether. Some cats also have very thick coats so their owners elect to shave them in the hot summer months. Even if the cat is grooming itself properly, they may need a little help especially when they’re shedding. It’s a good idea to at least brush your cat from a young age. This gets the cat used to physical contact outside of just being petted or held.

Despite dog grooming being the most common, cat grooming is definitely a growing trend. Just like dogs, there is often times a need for deshedding in the warmer months. If a cat, especially one with long hair, is losing a lot of fur, it can wreak havoc on their stomach and digestive system and cause an increase in hairballs. Most cats are obviously not as fond of the water as most dogs, so we can understand pet owners unwillingness to bathe and groom their cats. We have the experience necessary to make the grooming process as comfortable as possible for all parties involved.
