Long haired cats require frequent grooming to prevent "matting" of the coat. It is a good idea to get long haired kittens used to being gently brushed right from the start. Grooming equipment should be specifically designed for cats.
At The Vet Centre we stock a wide range of grooming tools and can advise the best tools suitable for your cat’s coat type. Nail clipping is not usually necessary in cats with access to the outdoors but they can be clipped if they regularly get caught on the carpet or furniture.
