If you are scared to trim your cat’s claws, that’s okay. Claws are pointy, so your fear is understandable.
If you are afraid to irritate your cat by combing through her fur, that’s okay. Some cats aren’t easy to comb.
YOU don’t have to do these things, but if you want to take good care of your cat, SOMEONE has to do them.
Those claws need to be trimmed. That fur needs to be brushed.
There’s no shame in calling a cat groomer. After all, most of us don’t sew our own dresses or make our own shoes. Most of us don’t bake our own bread. If it’s easier for you, and easier for the cat, go for it.
