Professional Cat Grooming and Its Benefits

 

Professional Cat Grooming and Its Benefits- Happy Pet Cats
Happy and Contented Cat

 

Grooming is an integral part of the health and well being of cats. While other cat owners are satisfied in giving home care to their feline friends, taking them to professional groomers is still highly recommended. These experts have the right tools and equipment for pet grooming that is essential in the proper handling of cats. Grooming a cat professionally can solve many owner problems. This includes shedding, having dandruff, hairballs, dirty ears, scratching furniture, allergies, matting, sanitation cleanliness and many more.

Listed below are some examples of services grooming professionals offer and the reasons why these are beneficial for our cats:

  • Bathing – helps to find out if your cat is infested with fleas and parasites

  • Nail Trimming – helps prevent the nails from growing too long which is very uncomfortable and unhealthy for your cats. Overgrown nails can cause a tremendous amount of pain and distress. This should be done at least once a month to prevent them from being overgrown.

  • Brushing – distributes natural oils that help maintain the skin and the health of the cat’s coat, which in turn helps in lessening the chances of shedding. This will also be helpful in checking for abnormalities on the skin, as well as help lessen the chances of your cat’s hair from getting tangled and matted

                                                   

 

  • Ear Cleaning – helps prevent wax, fluid, dirt, and debris build up in your cat’s ears to lessen the chance of ear infections, ear mites or other possible ailments

      The results of having your cat professionally groomed would really be very beneficial. More than the visual and physical benefits; it is a health benefit as well. A well-groomed cat can help in eliminating hairball and shedding issues, lessen allergies, improve their skin conditions, and eliminate ingrown nails and more.

       There are plenty of advantages that come with getting your cats professionally groomed, and the benefits that come from keeping your fur baby healthy far outweigh the cost. Give your pur-fect cat the experience and benefits of professional grooming it deserves.

 

 

 

Ferrell cats friend or foe

There has been a lot of interest and comments made lately on Ferrell cats.  I have friends who recently adopted a litter of kittens from a Ferrell cat couple.  The whole neighborhood was involved in feeding and caring for these fur babies and recently put an ad out on Facebook for adoption of these cute little kittens as they hadn’t gone the way of the parents due to all the human interaction they had received.

This is not always the case, sometimes people fear them, try to capture them, call animal control on them, anything to rid the neighborhood of these unwanted guests.  On the flip side some people welcome them as a way to rid their neighborhood of mice, rats, unwanted birds, or they live by the mantra “live and let live.”

Where do Ferrell cats come from? Sad to say many come from abandonment; they get tired of their pet; or they have to relocate and no pets are allowed; maybe a child has an allergy and can’t tolerate the pet and instead of surrendering them to a shelter they take them to a neighborhood and drop them off to fend for themselves.  This is against the law in most areas however, under the cover of night, it’s hard to catch someone guilty of this action.

This is an age old debate, as long as there are people and pets there will be this problem; are you part of the solution?  Where do your feelings fall in this debate?  Start a conversation with your family, your neighborhood, to educate others on the proper way to care for their pets; spay or neuter; surrender or put up for adoption; there are many solutions to this age-old problem; which side of the fence do you fall on?  We’d love to hear from you.
