You will need
  • comb
  • - dry food or any treats
  • old gloves
To accustom the cat to the scratching, of course, as soon as possible. An adult cat to teach will have probably longer, but in any case it all depends on the nature of cats. It is important to focus on the procedure and be in a good mood - all the cats feel!
First you need to choose an excellent location. Preferred the window sill - good lighting, the cat is limited in movement, and you are comfortable, no need to bend down. Also handy to brush on the table, in the light of a Desk lamp and the bathroom. Before brushing you need to teach the cat to this place to assist her and to stroke, to talk to her.
Now let's talk about combs. A good slicker brush will reduce the time of combing several times, but not every owner is willing to buy it. The first time, it is sufficient to use the conventional massage brush or glove. Most importantly, the brush should not injure the skin of the animal! Massage comb with metal teeth have a special coating and it is important to change the comb coating is damaged. In advance put the comb in place, where they plan to groom the pet.
The secret - the combination with feeding! The cat must be hungry enough and the food should be her favorite. It's best to use dry food or treats.
If the cat is afraid, take it to the place of scratching, try rubbing a couple of minutes and put the bowl of food. Then start slowly to comb from head to end of back. If, after the first combing the cat runs away, lure her out of hiding with food and immediately begin to comb when she eats. Try not to give the cat to run away and constantly push food.
If the cat bites and scratches, for the first time is better to wear unnecessary leather or cloth gloves to save skin. Aggressive cats can cope a little easier, the most important thing to distract them! You can also distract a feeding, or try a favorite toy. To do this, one person played with the cat, and the second standing behind began to scratch.
Do not try to comb the entire cat for the 1st time. Combine the feeding and brushing 1 - 2 times a week, each time increasing the time of combing, and gradually the cat will become accustomed, will associate the hairbrush with food and no longer afraid and bite. After brushing, always give the treat and praise the cat.
