Persian Coat Care
Persian Kitten/Cat Coat Care
Grooming your Persian cat doesn’t have to be a chore. Instead, it can be a wonderful bonding time for you and your kitty. How to keep a Persian cat’s coat in tip-top condition.
Your new kitten will come to you fully trained with a regular grooming schedule.
Our kittens receive their first bath at 5 weeks old and have weekly baths until they leave.
They have no fear of water or dryers. They understand this is a part of their lives.
You can merge their baths to once a month, but we recommend staying on top of their bathing schedule, or they will get out of their routine.
Be sure and comb your Persian daily. Always reward your kitty with a treat after the grooming session is over, so they will look forward to the next one.
We have included links to the exact products we use here in the nursery/cattery.
We have several different combs in the grooming salon but tend to use this one the most.
