Hi everyone! I have a quick question about grooming our new cat. We've progressed quite a bit on bonding and trust over the last two months. He's gone from hating me to tolerating me and now appears to like me, haha. It's taken more patience then I knew I possessed to get here and I know we still have a ways to go. I've been working on brushing him, he's long haired and super fluffy. He's matting up a little and shedding clumps of fur. He gets really irritated when I brush him. Are there any tips or tricks you used to help your cat stay calm while you brushed them? I've been doing it a little everyday and stopping when he gets upset, then I give him a treat and lots of love. Is that the right tactic or should I just stop completely until we've built up more trust between us. How can I help the matting of his coat if I should stop? Thank you for any advice!
