To get started, place your cat on a clear and clean flat surface. Make sure it is calm and comfortable, if not try giving it a treat and petting it to head to tail.

For short hair and mid length hair cats you want to use a dual side-brush. The wire side is for understanding and works great for a back scratcher while the brush gets the hair off the cat. After brushing to head to tail get soft towel and gentle remove the unwanted hair.

Long hair cats with wavy hair can be really difficult to groom. It takes longer to clean up their mess and to get out tangles. A good product to use is a grooming glove. It work well with long haired pets and makes it a comfortable experience but make sure your aren’t putting to much pressure into the glove. If your cat hasn’t been groomed in a while use a mat breaker first to get rid of any major knot and matted hair.

Our last but not least hair type is the no hair. Despite having no hair on their bodies hairless cats still need a lot of maintenance. Hairless cats have sensitive skin and can get sunburns apply the recommended amount of sun screen on the bottle. In colder weather put a sweater on your cat because the can’t maintain heat like regular cats.
