Longhair cats have more fur, and it’s longer, too, and therefore needs to brushed more often than regular cats.
, Pin or wire brushes are a great choice for longhair cats, since they are stronger and can untangle knots easier.
, If your cat likes baths, give him a bath. If he hates baths, sprinkle him with some dry shampoo.
, Because longhair cats’ fur is more susceptible to tangling, knots will quickly become worse.
, Nails that are too long will be more likely to get caught in things, as well as make it hard to walk if they get really long.
, Seem like too much work? Take your cat to a groomer! The groomer will know what she’s doing, and you won’t have to deal with a bath-hating cat or your cat running away when he sees the brush!
