Cats are known for being typically independent creatures, but they still need some TLC from their owners. At Gresham Animal Hospital we care about all of your cats little quirks, and want to make sure they continue being the individuals they are for many years to come. Continue below to read a tip for keeping your cat happy, healthy and lively.

8. Groom your cat often. All cats, whether long- or short-haired, should be brushed regularly to keep their coats and skin healthy, prevent matting, and reduce shedding and hairballs. They also need to have their claws clipped to keep them from growing into their paw. Grooming is a good opportunity to discover any lumps, fleas, injuries, etc., and bond with your kitty.
