Cats do need the occasional comb if you are the proud owner of a long-haired cat then this is a must, fur tangles which can hurt the cat and stop them walking, also the knots will pull on the skin causing great discomfort and tearing. Can cause wounds mats on the backside can become encrusted with poo as well as urine causing skin problems this can cause a cat to pull and tear ripping the skin causing pain.
Health reasons a cat will benefit greatly it maintains their fur and helps you check on soars, fleas and parasites it also soothes them, especially in summer time they will lose a lot of loose fur and will often be sick or get the fur caught in their throats.
Combing helps with the natural oil which helps maintain skin and coat also this will help with deepening the friendship, cats that are handled and loved respond well and are less likely to need visits to the vet and are very contented.
The amount of fur you get from combing will show you how much could be swallowed, and this helps them with their personal grooming allowing you to check their ears and health of the cat, frequent grooming helps desensitize the cat to being handled.
Grooming does not take long a few minutes to comb through and enjoy togetherness with your cat after a while the cat will look forward to these special moments.
