How to trim your cat’s foot hair.
Cat’s foot hair actually refers to the hair that grows between the cat’s foot pads and toes. You can often see photos of the cat’s pink and tender feet on the Internet. Look at your cat’s little feet. The long foot hair really destroys the beauty. So, what are the benefits of trimming the cat’s foot hair regularly?
First of all, the cat’s body has no sweat glands. The cat’s sweat glands grow on the cat’s foot pads. When it is very hot in summer, careful parents will find that the cat’s foot pads will be damp. In fact, this is the cat sweating. Trimming the cat’s foot hair regularly can help the cat dissipate heat and sweat and prevent the cat from heatstroke.
Secondly, if your home has a slippery floor such as a wooden floor or a tiled floor, you need to trim the foot hair regularly, because the cat’s foot pad is anti-slip. If the foot hair is too long, the cat will easily slip or fall during running.
Third, if you are a lazy or fat cat, it is inconvenient to lick the hair, and you will often neglect to clean up your feet. If the cat owners cannot trim their feet regularly, the long foot hairs can easily hide dirt. It becomes a good place for bacteria to breed, causing inflammation of the cat’s toes and nails. In severe cases, it will develop into paronychia, making the cat inconvenient or even limp.
Fourth, trim the cat’s foot hair regularly so that it is not easy for the cat to take out the litter from the litter box, and it can also keep the home environment hygienic.
Finally, the cat’s foot hair is easy to be stained with bacteria or parasite eggs when the cat is walking (if there are cockroaches in the house, it is easy to be stained with parasite eggs), and the cat will eat the bacteria and parasite eggs when cleaning the feet. The stomach is harmful to the cat’s health. Since trimming the cat’s feet regularly is good for the cat, how often do we trim the cat?
Generally, cats should be thoroughly combed and cut nailes once a week. After cutting the nails, use round-tip scissors to cut the cat’s foot hair. When cutting, you should break apart the cat’s toes, cut the foot hair to the length of the foot pad, and then wipe the cat’s foot pad clean.
