When the summer heat ramps up, whether your cat stays inside without air conditioning or routinely goes outside, you might be wondering whether it's a good idea to have her shaved. The answer to this is mostly no, but we'll go over some specifics below. Indoor cats should be able to find a place to stay cool enough when they are inside. They can rest without exerting themselves if they need to, they aren't in the direct sun, and there should always be a source of fresh, cool water for them to take advantage of. Therefore, indoor cats don't require shaving during the hot months.
Knowing how to shave your cat at home can help you save on groomers' fees, remove mats that don't respond to mat breakers, or prepare your pet before a procedure at the vet's office. The key to safe shaving is getting your kitty comfortable with the equipment you're using. The only thing that you really need for shaving cats is a good pair of clippers. However, depending on the temperament of your cat and how amenable he is to being shaved, you may find a few other things helpful as well. You can take your cat to a groomer to have him shaved, but if you want to do it yourself, keep in mind that every cat is different, and some will resist shaving more than others.
After his latest shave Jin Jin did not return with his usual lion-style cut but instead was completely bald aside from his face, the Dodo has reported. Qian had asked a friend to drop off Jin Jin to the groomers as she was busy, giving strict instructions on what she wanted but there appeared to have been a miscommunication about what style of haircut was required. Though Qian could see the funny side of the situation she admitted that her husband was not too pleased about the kitty's new hairstyle but he was soon laughing as well. Earlier this month fellow cat owners shared hilarious images of their mischievous moggies.
Kitties are notoriously well-groomed, but that doesn't mean they don't need professional help to look and feel their best. While not as commonplace as dog grooming, cat grooming is a growing industry and one that has health and beauty benefits for your cat. The most obvious benefit of cat grooming is how sleek and beautiful your kitty looks after a day at the salon or a visit from your mobile groomer. For long-haired cats or those that like sneaking through tick-filled grass or thorny bushes , cat grooming keeps fur free from knots and tangles.
