I didn't get into the habit of grooming my cat until she was well out of kitten hood. I still don't do it as often as I should but I'm getting back into the groove. Since she isn't used to being groomed, she hates it. I don't mind that she doesn't like it normally, but she gets VERY purterbed when I go for her stomach. Since she has long hair, I need to groom this area too. Is there anything you can recommend for me to do to be able to get her used to it? Thanks for your time!
If you have a good relationship with your vet why don't you ask your vet for a cat sedative?? You can also buy gloved brushes that make it seem like you are "petting" your cat. vetcare
