Cat allergies? What to do. Baths once a week.

“Gene Nesbitt, DVM, a veterinary dermatologist and clinical professor at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, offers these helpful tips to ease symptoms:

* Conduct grooming outdoors

* Bathe your cat weekly, weather permitting

* Use a vacuum that has a Hepa filter on your carpet regularly

* Use a room air cleaner”

My note:  Because grooming outdoors isn’t possible in most New York apartments, I suggest letting your cat air-dry if the cat is short-haired.  If the cat is long-haired, I would blow-dry the cat in the bathroom, then use a Swiffer mop to wipe the bathroom floors.

I groom cats in your own home. I do everthing needed for a soft, clean cat. Claw trims to prevent painful scratches and damaged furniture. Brushing to prevent furballs and matting. Rear-end trims to keep things clean after the litter box visit. Baths for soft, shiny fur. Clients praise my calm, gentle yet firm attitude. Cat sitting visits last 1/2 hour. Daily photo, fresh food and water, playtime, cuddles. A true "cat nanny".
