Tell me what your fur looks like so I can tell you who you are. This is how a famous saying could paraphrase. The appearance of the fur but also the way the cat cared for reflects its health. Make sure your cat is properly cared for. Whether you have a purebred cat or simply a little feline without “noble” origins, you need ,,feline coquetry“. This way it will have beautiful and shiny fur.
Cats are animals that are most concerned with personal hygiene. They take care of their toilet and lick for hours to take care of their fur. But not from feline coquetry. They get the vitamins they need from their fur.
But ingested hair in large quantities can create intestinal problems. For this reason, we must periodically remove excess hair with bristles. Cats with short hair do not need too much care. Brushing once a week is enough.
Long-haired cats, on the other hand, need much more attention. Their fur can make knots.
Whether you have a purebred cat or simply an ordinary cat, its fur must be properly cared for to look shiny.
Cat care is not the only thing you need to consider. The appearance of her fur also depends on the type of food you offer her but also on her health.
Brush it more often
In general, the cat is a clean animal and tends to take care of its fur daily. This does not mean that you do not have to pay attention to it. It is very important to take care of your cat’s fur. This will prevent it from looking untidy.
Whether you have a purebred cat
or simply a little feline without “noble” origins
If you have an older cat that no longer pays the same attention to its appearance as it did before, brush it more often. This helps the sebum secreted by its skin to spread on all the fur. The latter helps moisturize the fur by giving it shines.
The fur will look much more arranged and you will avoid the formation of hair clew. Breeders recommend that, in these cases, combing first with a brush and then with a toothed comb though.

If you notice that your cat’s fur has lost its shine and looks unkempt, it is advisable to visit your veterinarian (you and your cat).
Together, you can discover the cause that led to this problem.
One of the causes could be an inadequate diet. It is good to consider any weight problems. An obese cat often has a careless fur. This is because the cat no longer attaches much importance to its own hygiene.
Also, as you get older, a cat will become less flexible and may suffer from arthritis. She loses her ability to wash as she did in her youth. As such, the fur will look more unkempt.
Various medical conditions that the cat may suffer from, diseases of the liver, kidneys or thyroid gland, can also be a common cause of unkempt hair.
The untidy appearance of the fur is often the cause of an inadequate diet. Normally, a cat’s food should be as varied and rich in fiber as possible.
The cat should receive both dry and moist food.
Also, the lack of vitamins and minerals can be another cause of the untidy appearance of the fur.
The veterinarian is the only one able to confirm this and recommend dietary supplements to give to the cat.
Regardless of the type of hair they have, the cat should combed to prevent the fur from tangling and to remove fallen hair. They can swallow while the cat is doing its toilet. Depending on the type of fur your cat has, there are friends with longer or shorter brushes.
The combs also help to remove dirt particles from its fur. Combs with longer and thinner hairs are perfect for untangling hair in cats with long fur. The brushes help to remove hair and arrange the fur, giving it a beautiful and neat look.
Keep in mind that during molting it is important to brush
your cat more often than usual. This way you will prevent the fur from getting tangled.
At the same time, you will avoid your cat swallowing a lot of hair during grooming. This prevents the formation of fur clumps in the cat’s stomach.
One of the solutions you can use is a special brush that you can buy from the pet shop. This will help you quickly remove both dead hair and underwear. This reduces the molting effect by 90%.
There is a wide range of special shampoos for cats
on the market. Opt for the most suitable for your cat, depending on the sensitivity of the skin and fur.
If you do not know what type of shampoo to choose, go with your cat to a veterinary consultation before choosing the shampoo.
Never use shampoos for humans or babies. They have a different pH level. They will cause the cat’s skin to dry out and lose the shine of the fur.
It is also very important to wash your cat only when its fur looks unkempt. Very frequent washings can change the appearance of the fur.
Also, to keep her fur healthy and beautiful, you can buy various products for her beauty and care. For example salmon oil conditioners or those designed to prevent the fur from tangled.
Why do cats have fur? (instead of conclusion)
In the beginning, God created Heaven and Earth. On the fifth day, He created the Cat … naked.
For a while, everything was fine. The fact that she was without fur helped her, especially in summer, to stay clean and tidy. Also, he had no problems with curls.
After a while, the furry animals began teasing the little feline creature: “Ha, ha, naked cat, you’re so ugly!”
,,Oh, how beautiful are the other beings with their wonderful furs!” the cat thought, coquettish by nature, looking at her skin.
But life went on, the cat soon forgot the mischievous words. She was proud again of her own appearance. She considered herself beautiful, in her own way, even without hair.
But soon the bad weather came with wet and cold days. In vain the poor cat curled up, looking for shelter in the foliage. He couldn’t stand the cold.
When he found a warmer bed, he had to change position because it hit and scratched, injuring his sensitive skin.
One cold night, as she was struggling to fall asleep, the furry, eared rabbit came to her. “Why are you sad, kitten?” the rabbit asked. “Don’t you see I’m empty?” and where else can I say that I am so cold and trembling! ”.
Then the rabbit nestled next to the cat and whispered in his ear: “If you pray to a star and have faith, your wish will come true.”
Even after a few moments, a star flickered high in the sky and the cat knew what to do. He closed his eyes and said, “I wish all the cats and I had a nice, warm coat, like the other animals.”
When he opened his eyes, the star was just disappearing behind the moon. All the cats around the globe had come out of their hiding places to look at the light of the night star. When it started to fade, a miracle happened! The body of each cat covered with longer or shorter fur, of different colors.
Only in the depths of a cave stood a scared kitten who, not witnessing the event, remained “naked”. This is how, today, the breed called Sphynx is different from all the others, that is … naked. I will write about this breed soon.
