Cat hair needs constant grooming. Especially if you have a long haired cat. Persian and Siberian cats are sheared more often than others. However, in some cases it may be necessary to trim an animal of any breed. For example, if, due to poor care, tangles have formed on the coat. At the same time, a groomer specialist may not always be nearby.
It is necessary
- Scissors with rounded ends or a special clipper with attachments
- Hair dryer
- Cosmetics for washing
Trim your cat's nails, especially if this is your first time cutting an animal and do not know how pleasant the upcoming procedure is.
Calm the cat down. If the cat is very scared, do not insist and postpone the grooming until next time. Pet the cat, say different affectionate words to her.
If you are just going to remove the tangles, then the collar can not be worn. Let the family member whom the cat knows and loves well, take her on his knees and gently stroke her. At this time, cut out the accumulations of wool with scissors. If you need a more substantial haircut, it is recommended to wear a collar on the cat. Then he will not be afraid of the noise of the car.
Trim the back and sides of the coat. It is recommended to drive the machine in the direction of the wool. You can't cut a cat's head. Wool should remain at least 0.5 cm long.
Flip the cat on its back and trim the fur on the belly and chest. Then trim the paws. You can leave the cuffs. Never touch your head or tail.
Rinse the cat with warm water and blow dry. If the cat does not like to swim, you can not wash it, but simply blow it with warm air from a hair dryer.
