As much as a cat loves to groom itself, it is sometimes necessary to seek out a professional cat grooming service. This is especially true of long-haired cats who also may suffer from hairballs to an excess if not properly groomed. Many owners groom their cats themselves with a cat brush both to keep the cat clean and also to bond with the animal.
Cat grooming can be surprisingly expensive, but it is often worth it for show cats and purebreds. Groomers also are often either veterinarians themselves, or work closely with them. For this reason they can often spot signs of illness or concern that even a passionate owner may not be aware of.
Cat grooming also allows a cat enthusiast a great way to learn about our furry little friends while making some money too. Various breeds of cats have very different looks and personalities and being a cat groomer is a good way to quickly become an expert. It is also useful if you’re hoping to one day judge cat fancy shows.
