What should be the haircut of a cat
Do you need a cat haircut? This procedure has become in great demand among pet owners. Haircut, however, like washing cats, at first glance seems difficult.These animals do not like to stay in one place for long and negatively relate to water procedures. But, from a hygienic point of view, the shearing of longhaired breeds is simply necessary. After all, if you do not comb the animal every day, then it forms collars, which are painful and injure the skin. In addition, the haircut of a cat positively affects the quality characteristics of the fur.
The entire procedure begins with clipping of claws. The haircut itself should be carried out by several specialists in order to limit the movement of the pet. Anesthesia for carrying out such a procedure is highly undesirable, since it can have a bad effect on the health of the animal. With the hair clipper, the hair is removed from the back, sides and abdomen. Especially carefully and accurately it is done in the field of axillary depressions, because it is there where the formation of coots occurs most often. Then proceed to the tail. It should be noted that the wool in this case is removed no more than 2/3 of the entire length (or remains completely untouched).
It remains to make a beautiful design with the help of trimming the "mane". The protruding hairs on the muzzle and beard of the animal are neatly trimmed. It should be noted that it is not necessary to go to a specialized hairdresser. Experience shows that the shearing of cats at home is very real. An animal will, to some extent, even be easier in its native walls.
After the end of the haircut, the ears are cleaned. It should be noted that in no case can hair be removed in them. It is better to clean your ears before bathing, since most of the specialized tools are oil-based.
The final stage of such a procedure, as a cat's haircut, is washing. Despite the fact that there is an opinion that there is no need for this for domestic cats. Bathing is especially important, as it helps to remove unnecessary hair and grow new. In addition, during washing, the body of the animal cleanses from contamination, which significantly improves the skin condition and is the prevention of various diseases.
This procedure is best done in a limited area, because if the animal breaks out, catching it, for example, in the bathroom will not be difficult.Cats have different ways of bathing. Someone is sitting quietly and waiting for the end of the unpleasant process, and someone is trying, by all means, to get out of the ill-fated bath and scratch the "offender". In any case, you should choose clothes with long sleeves, which will allow at least a little to protect your hands.
For the same reason, you need to prepare a towel in advance, as well as several basins of water. One of them is intended directly for washing, the other two for rinsing.
The final stage of bathing is drying the cat. This is especially important for animals with long hair. If you do not dry it with a hair dryer, there will certainly appear coots, combing which will simply not be possible.
Thus, hygienic procedures (cutting a cat, washing it) - an integral element of competent care for a pet. They must be carried out regularly.
