Why Does My Cat Shed More RIGHT After a Groom?
Many clients are surprised when Kitty’s Purrfect Spa hands Kitty back to them and hair is flying everywhere! WHY does this happen??? Doesn’t Kitty’s Purrfect Spa claim to have all the answers for our Kitty’s coat issues???
Cats shed after a groom for two main reasons. First, even though Kitty’s Purrfect Spa comes to your home and monitors Kitty for signs of stress, grooming can still be a stressful process until it is something Kitty understands and comes to expect. Just like the things you have to do once a year verses monthly. The less often we do something, the more anxiety/excitement we have. The same is true for Kitty. With regular grooming Kitty will become accustomed to the grooming process. Kitty will know that Kitty’s Purrfect Spa will always groom her with the same steps and this will make Kitty less anxious. Kitty’s Purrfect Spa “regulars” know that after the cologne is sprayed, they are going to be placed in their owner’s arms. Many feline clients will sit patiently and wait in front of the door, even if they were grumpy during the groom, because they know they are finished!
A second reason your cat sheds more right after a groom is that the warm bath water opens up the hair follicles and provides the perfect time for the hairs that were getting ready to leave the coat to come out. (Just like when you shower, your hair is more likely to come out.) The same is true for Kitty.
If your Kitty does have some loose fur immediately following the groom, please be sure in 24 to 48 hours it will stop, and you will be noticing much less Kitty hair everywhere!
Kitty’s Purrfect Spa Offers a Professional De Shed Treatment.
During this add on service, Kitty’s dead undercoat is literally sucked out. This does not hurt Kitty in any way and some of Kitty’s Purrfect Spa “regulars” don’t consider their groom over until they have their De Shed treatment! This treatment helps significantly reduce the amount of hair you will find around your home and on your clothes.
The most effective way to have Kitty’s shedding under control is regular grooming by a highly trained professional cat groomer. In order to help you with shedding, Kitty’s Purrfect Spa offers special rates for cats on a regular schedule. Please call for more details! 661-505-0397.
