May I?

BHU: Hai, effuryone! Mai mom needs some advice. She is trying to "train" me to let her brush me because I make a big fuss when she takes me to the groomer, Josie. Okay, I admitz it: I screams, yowls, bites, claws and tries to excape. Because I has this CRF thing, the vet won't give me a sedative so if I don't behave, I don't get groomed. Do you think I am gonna behave? NOOOOOOOO! PATTY: Does anyone have any suggestions? I know Bhu is an old codger at this point (can't teach an old kitteh new tricks, as they say) and getting codgier as we speak. He has some serious mats and I just don't know how to get them off. I've been searching online, reading what I find and watching videos and it all boils down to this: success depends on some cooperation from the kitteh, and I don't seem to be able to get that. BHU: Sorry. I no like burrush and HATE comb. PATTY: So, please, please, please tell me how you groom your kitteh and what you use -- brand names! I will be furrever grateful! P.S. Photo is a scene that ensued when I decided to organize my hefty collection of greeting cards. Bhu don't fit, but he don't carez! LOL xxoo

I was very lucky with Sweet Praline. She loved to be brushed and I had a wonderful groomer when she was a kitten that knew how to groom Persians.

I'm still working with Truffle and Brulee. I've bought a pin cushion brush (saw this on a Persian breeder webpage) and they seem to enjoy this better. They don't like the comb. I've also discovered the FURminator is great for working out mats. I don't use it all over, but use it when they get those mats. One of the things I've found to be successful is giving them a treat before and after the grooming.

Good luck!

Angel will tolerate the comb to brush for a little while, but Kirby not at all. It took time to get Angel to accept it for any length of time. I use a fine tooth comb and then switch to the furminator.
