While cats are generally tidy sometimes they need a little help.  When you have a cat it may seem like your cat leaves hair even in the most unexpected places.  Here are some tips that will help you to keep your pet’s trail of hair to a minimum.

1.    Brush your cat.  To help your cat deal with shedding comb gently from head to tail.  When combing the cat’s chest and stomach be sure to comb tenderly, these areas are often very sensitive on cats.

2.    Make a routine.  Cats are almost always shedding and it may be help to brush often.

3.    If cat’s hair is oily it may be due to a medical condition.  If your cat experiences oily fur and you are not sure you may want to go to the vet.  For most cats with this symptom than they may need a little added attention, like a bath.  Yes, we all know cats do not like water but you have to do what you have to do. If you decide to wash your cat at home be sure to use very mild, animal-safe shampoo and lukewarm water.  Also it may be very helpful to wear gloves, and move slowly.  After your cat is clean be sure to dry them thoroughly to keep them from getting irritated skin
