    Very impressive

    Since I am Miss Kitty's groomer now, I have realized how much work a cat has to put in her daily grooming to look fabulous.
    I am completely in awe about how they accomplish this. Not only do they have to reach every part of their body, they also have to deal with the hair going down their digestive tract!
    And they do it every day, several times.
    I can't blame Miss Kitty that, after 18 years, she had finally enough of this.

    It's totally understandable if she can't groom herself, being 18 years old, it's very likely that she has hip pain, too. So I'm glad she has you to do it for her.

    Which kind of brush do you use? Be gentle - and give her some kisses from me!

    Kisses from me and Purrrrs from Sparkler and Galaxy, too!

    I use a rubber brush for the top coat, and a narrow-toothed comb for the undercoat. Every day, I get a big handful of hair.
    I passed on the kisses!

    She does, she's purring up a storm when she gets brushed.
    Since her blood pressure is regulated, she has been doing a little more grooming herself because she feels better.
    Thanks for asking!

    Oh, how nice, that the brushing is going so well and she is enjoying it so much! And now she is back doing some of her own grooming because she feels better!

    Loads of love and hugs and purrrs to you, Miss Kitty, and all your furry sibs and Mom!
