Cats Clean Themselves for Relaxation
Cats take comfort in the ritual of self-cleaning.
Remember, certain qualities indicate a healthy coat of fur, including:
* Shine and a soft, lush texture
* Little dander
* No black specks, which can be a sign of fleas
* No bald patches
* Not a lot of dead undercoat, since your cat normally removes it
To promote these qualities, feed your cat food that contains quality natural ingredients, essential nutrients and amino acids. Visit your veterinarian twice a year to stay ahead of common problems, and establish a daily brushing routine with your cat. “Both Cats and owners should look forward to this productive time together,” says Dr. Jane Brunt, a veterinarian at the Cat Hospital at Towson, in Baltimore.
