Your cat's fur needs your support here and there. But what to do if your fur nose doesn't feel like combing and brushing? The following tips will help you overcome your pet's skepticism. You have to have the necessary patience all by yourself, but it will certainly pay off.

Grooming is important: brushing supports the cat

Regular grooming is of course particularly important for long-haired cats. Otherwise the fur forms knots and begins to matt. Not only can this be avoided from an aesthetic point of view, it also causes pain to the cat. Brushing can help support tiger tents, especially when changing their fur. Because even with short-haired cats, fur balls that are swallowed during daily grooming can strain the gastrointestinal tract.

Combing and brushing: how to prepare your cat

Many cats are skeptical of combs or brushes and therefore do not let their owners close. So one thing in advance: The be-all and end-all when getting used to the device is patience and consequence. Don't overwhelm your velvet paw, give it enough time, but don't give up either.

First of all, it is important that your cat gets to know the brush or comb. Leave the grooming utensil on the floor in a room and give your pet the opportunity to approach the strange thing. Take it in hand in the next training step. If your house tiger also comes to you, reward him with a treat. Each time, you can step a step closer to the cat with the brush.

Gradually get used to grooming

For the next step, wait a moment when your velvet paw is awake but in a cozy mood. Stroke them and try to make a line with the brush every now and then. If the cat stays calm, reward it. Let more and more brushing movements flow in. The fear of the procedure on your fur nose will gradually disappear - the animal will soon even enjoy the whole thing.
