Here are eight ways grooming helps your cat:
1. Decreases hairballs.
2. Controls fleas.
3. Keeps the cat (and therefore your home) cleaner.
4. Keeps matting to a minimum.
5. Allows the cat more freedom of movement.
6. Removes dead skin/fur.
7. Degreases the coat.
8. Avoids the chance that elimination would be impeded.
