How to care for a cat depending on the length of its fur?

To maintain the health and beauty of cat hair needs daily care. Most of the animals exercise on their own, performing daily “washing”, but this is not always enough. Helping your pet in caring for wool, you not only improve the quality of its coat, but also reduce the number of hairs that it leaves on pieces of furniture and clothing during shedding.
What are cats?
By type of coat cats can be divided into 4 main categories:

• Cats without wool (sphinx);

• Short-haired (Siamese, Bengali, British);

• Semi-longhair (bobtail, munchkin);

• Longhair (Maine Coon, Angora).

How to care for hairless and short-haired cats?
Bald cats are not completely devoid of coat, and short, very sparse hair is still present in small quantities on certain parts of their body (head, paws). This wool does not require care, which can not be said about bald skin. The fact is that the skin of bald cats often allocates an excess amount of sebum brownish color, giving the animal an unpleasant appearance. You can solve the problem by regularly rubbing the skin of such cats with special wet wipes or regular bathing.

Shorthair cats are the least whimsical in matters of grooming and almost completely provide their own hygiene. It is necessary to comb out such cats mainly for more effective removal of dead wool and prevention of pollution by the hair of an apartment.
How to care for long and semi-long hair?
Wool of semi-longhair and longhair cats requires maximum care. It consists in regular (best daily) combing and combing of dead hairs.

First, comb the cat with a comb with sparse thick teeth, then with more frequent teeth in the direction of hair growth. The movements should be soft and smooth in order not to bring discomfort to the animal.

When tangles appear, first of all you should try to untangle them with your fingers. If you do not succeed, take a blunt knitting needle or blunt scissors and, sticking a tool into the mat, pass it from the beginning of the hair growth to the end.

Do it very carefully – if you pull the wool, your pet will be hurt. And if it is impossible to unravel, very carefully cut the koltun.
How often to bathe a cat?
The answer of leading dermatologists to this question is unequivocal: the less often, the better. Any cat should be bathed only in the case of persistent pollution, which the animal cannot cope on its own.
Why is an integrated approach important?
To ensure the health and beauty of the coat, good care is not enough. An extremely important factor is a complete and balanced diet. Cat food must contain a sufficient amount of macro-and micronutrients, must be rich in vitamins and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and also include a large amount of high-quality easily digestible protein.
How to care for a cat with sensitive skin?
For cats with sensitive skin, a special feed, PRO PLAN® Derma Plus, has been developed to help improve the quality of coat and maintain healthy skin. As a source of protein, it includes salmon meat, which provides excellent taste of the feed and additionally saturates the diet with polyunsaturated fatty acids. It has been proven that cats using the PRO PLAN® Derma Plus ration on an ongoing basis significantly improve the quality of wool, molting is normalized, and due to the content of coarse plant fibers, bowel motility improves and the formation of hair lumps in the gastrointestinal tract is reduced.
