Tip 145



A basic toolbox for grooming  a longhaired cat should include the following:

A double-sided wire and bristle brushes is useful for general grooming. Consider a slicker brush for removing tangles, dead hair and debris. They also help to distribute healthy coat oils all over the body. A wide-toothed comb helps long hair to remain matt-and tangle-free and a de-shedding comb will keep the undercoat thinned without cutting the hair.

As with your own personal brushes and combs, it’s a good idea to regularly wash and disinfect your cat’s grooming tools. Keep them all together in a little plastic container.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
