2. The choice of long hair cat and short hair cat
Long haired cats and short haired cats have their own merits. In the process of choosing a cat, one may be confused about whether to choose a long haired cat or a short one.
The long haired cat looks like a plush toy, especially beautiful, the soft long hair feels particularly comfortable; while the short hair cat is energetic, radiant, and indeed exciting.
In contrast, short haired cats don’t have to spend so much time combing. However, the carding of long haired cats is a headache for you.
If you don’t comb the fur of a long haired cat in time, its appearance is not only ugly, but also affects the health of the cat. Because the cat has the habit of licking hair, in the process of licking fur unconsciously swallow a large number of hair, a long time, will form a hair ball in the stomach, leading to vomiting.
Many cat owners often feel distressed by the flying cat fur at home, but this is something that can’t be avoided. You need to spend some time cleaning it. But whether it is a long hair cat or a short hair cat, hair loss is inevitable.

Therefore, pet owners can use a wet cotton ball, wipe these dirty things back and forth, and then wipe it clean.
2. After cleaning up the dirt, the pet owner should clean the cat’s ears with pet ear cleaner.

It is necessary to use the cat’s special ear washing liquid to effectively remove the ear mites.
When the owner washes, should think of a way to let the ear lotion and ear mite fusion, can gently rub the cat’s ear. About a few seconds later, you can let the cat throw out the earwax, and then wipe it with a cotton ball.

A cat’s ears look like triangles.
The purpose of the cat’s ear is to listen to sound and dissipate heat.
Most of the cat’s ears are large and upright. They can locate the sound source very quickly and catch very slight sound.
You can hear very fine sounds. The hearing of a cat is even sharper than that of a dog, and it is three times that of a human being.
For example, it can hear rats before they see them. So, it’s not surprising that we can wake up a cat with a completely inaudible sound. The small bell on the collar is a complete torment to the cat.
The function of cat’s beard:
The beard makes the cat’s sense of touch quite sharp. The whiskers of cats, also known as tentacles, mainly grow around the upper and lower lips, and some above the eyes. The roots of the whiskers are connected with a network of nerve endings extending in all directions, similar to the antenna.
They can help the cat judge danger, such as the hole is too narrow, or there is an obstacle in front of it, and it can also help the cat find objects and animals, such as invisible mice in the dark. At the same time, the shape of the beard can also show the mood of the cat.
