A short haired cat can be considered low maintenance compared with the long haired cat. Short coats can easily be kept clean by gently stroking your cat. Using your hand to groom will loosen dead hairs, tone muscles and help you bond with your cat. Grooming once a week is good enough for a short haired cat. If you feel like your hand needs assistance in the grooming process, you can invest in a fine-toothed comb and a stiff brush. The result of grooming your cat will be a happy cuddlesome cat that will look good and feel great.
