Contrary to what people might think, cats do need to be professionally groomed.
This doesn't have to be in a salon it can be at home, but at least once a month a cat needs to have a full body groom from head to toe. That's a wash, dry, brush, nails and sometimes a haircut. If they aren't being regularly groomed then they can develop health issues like skin conditions, infections and can be more susceptible to injuries.
They aren't as invincible as we think, and they definitely don't have 9 lives, so why not make the life that they do have with you a perfect, healthy and stress free one?
With a little bit of grooming and parental care, your feline friends' health and happiness can be flawless.
Who is it for?
This course is for anyone who owns or wants to own a cat and would like to learn how to keep them healthy, happy and handsome (ladies can be handsome too); anyone who wants to understand cats better and build stronger relationships with the ones they meet; and someone who loves cats and wants to learn more about them.
Reasons to enrol in this course?
Cat's are fiercely independent creatures and you will never be able to truly understand your cat until you start learning about their health and what makes them feel safe, happy and loved.
A cat's health is often overlooked - they seem so tough, independent and resilient on the outside but a cat can really struggle with their health. A lot of cats as they get older develop quite severe health conditions; they often go blind, develop hearing problems and are prone to developing cancer and diabetes. And because of a cat's lifestyle - being hunters and natural fighters - they are also more prone to illnesses and infections, and being attacked by other cats leading to wounds and injury.
It is therefore extremely important to check up on your cat's health regularly, not just when they require a trip to the vet but at least once a week to make sure they aren't hiding anything from you.
Grooming is one of the best ways to do this. With daily brushes, a monthly bath, and weekly body checks you can keep a good eye on your cat and make sure they feel their absolutely best.
Cats benefit massively from grooming and the safer they feel around you the more they will confide in you when there is something that is bothering them.
This course will teach you about the benefits to grooming cats and shows you exactly how to do it confidently and accurately.
