How to give British short bath trim feet, British short hair cat how to care

       To keep a healthy and beautiful British short hair cat, careful daily care is indispensable.

       1. Trim feet:

       Cat’s paw is a tool for cat to catch mice, climb and defend itself. If the owner keeps a cat to catch mice, of course, he can’t trim his feet. If the owner keeps a cat as a companion animal, he should often trim the cat’s paws to avoid scratching people, damaging clothes, furniture, floors, etc. Trim feet should start from a small age, once a month or so. The specific methods are as follows:

       Hold the British Shorthair cat in your arms, hold one of the cat’s feet with your left hand, and squeeze it slightly with your thumb, index finger, and middle finger, so that the claws can be extended. Then hold the nail knife with the right hand, carefully cut off the transparent part of the front end of the claw, and then use the small file on the nail knife to polish the claw. When pruning, don’t cut too much to avoid hurting the British short haired cat’s feet. Then cut and polish the other claws in turn.

       2. Bathing:

       Bathing British kittens can not only keep the cat clean and beautiful, but also remove some parasites on the body surface, promote blood circulation and metabolism, and play a role in disease prevention and fitness. It’s better to cultivate the habit of bathing from an early age, and then to bathe cats when they are adults. Cats will be very reluctant.

       Before taking a bath, prepare the utensils for washing, such as bath basin, bath towel, detergent, comb (preferably sparse and dense at one end), brush, etc.

       When bathing, the water temperature should not be too low or too high, so as not to scald the hands; the detergent used should not be too irritating, so as not to irritate the skin; the fur of the long haired cat should be combed before bathing to prevent tangle; the action of bathing should be quick, and the hair should be washed in a short time as soon as possible; after washing, the hair should be dried with bath towel immediately, and the towel can not make the hair completely dry, so blowing can be used When the air temperature is low, it is better to cover the special towel quilt or other warm keeping articles to prevent cold.

       3. Combing the coat:

       The tongue surface of the British short haired cat is rough, and has a special tongue nipple with barbed spines. It looks like a comb. The British short haired cat often uses the method of tongue licking to comb its fur. The parts that can’t be licked, such as head, shoulder, back and neck, should be combed with claws. Even so, it’s best to groom the cat once a day. Because the cat will depilate all the year round, especially in spring and autumn, when the cat combs, it will swallow the hair into the stomach and form a hair ball in the stomach over time. If it can’t be vomited out, and can’t be discharged through the intestinal tract in time, it will form the hair ball blocking, affecting appetite and even life-threatening.

       When carding, carding should be done not only along the hair, but also against the wool. British short haired cats can wet their hair with water first, and then rub it to make the coat stand up for easy carding. If the fur of a long haired cat is tangled or stuck together, it can be opened with the tip of a finger or combed slowly and carefully with a thin toothed comb. If the felt has been rolled, you can use scissors to cut the felt into strips along the direction of the hair, and then comb it with a comb. If the rolling felt is serious, the coat can be cut off to make it grow again.

       4. Remove tears:

       The eyes of healthy British shorthair cats are bright and divine. When British short haired cats are ill or in poor health, they are often afraid to see light and shed tears. Some cat species, the nasolacrimal duct is easy to block and tear. Cat tears too much, in the nasal corner of the eye is often accompanied with eye droppings, can be dipped in cotton wool 2% boric acid solution, gently wipe off.

       5. Ear care:

       British short hair cat ear care, mainly to remove wax. The method is: disinfect the external auditory canal with 75% alcohol cotton ball, dip olive oil or edible vegetable oil with cotton stick, soak the dry earwax, and take out the earwax carefully with tweezers after it softens. Do not break the mucous membrane of ear canal to prevent infection and suppuration. Once the external auditory canal is infected and suppurated, gently scrub it with cotton swab dipped in hydrogen peroxide. Scrub repeatedly until there is no pus stain on the cotton swab. Then dry the hydrogen peroxide in the ear canal with absorbent cotton. Scrub several times, the infection can be cured. If the cat’s earwax is too much and the cat shakes its head to scratch its ear, it should be treated by a veterinarian in time.
