Though it was my first time with a cat of this breed, I knew from past experiences that I knew exactly what to expect from this little kitty.
I knew that cats groomed themselves and would sometimes spit up fur balls if they didn’t have scratching post’s or even a sofa to rub on, but the amount of shedding & fur balls were unbelievable!
it was a constant battle between the hair and the furniture until I got her a scratching post, she not only stopped licking entirely, but she also had a much nicer, even coat of fur because the excessive grooming was wearing her fur out in certain area’s.
I think overall it would be safe to say once you know what to expect this cat isn’t so bad, its just the process of understanding what each specific animals needs and is trying to tell you by their actions, animals are a lot smarter than we give them credit for.
That could be why we feel so close to our pets, an unspoken, always present bond that we share with our animals.
