Grooming

Cats - Grooming Even though cats are considered "self-groomers," most cats need assistance with their grooming, some more than others. Long-haired cats can have a tough time keeping their long coat looking good, and even some short-haired cats sometimes need a little help. The best way to make grooming your cat as easy a task as possible is to start grooming him as a kitten.

Here's some information on the different aspects of grooming:

Bathing
