Currently, I have two cats, Domino and Buffy. Domino is a 7 yr old male whom we've had since he was a kitten, and Buffy is our newest addition, she is about 10 months old, we got her from the shelter in March. Vega, our oldest cat, had to be put down this past New Years Eve, she had cancer. ANYWAY, Vega loved to be brushed, she would rub up against the brush, arch her back, she could lay there for hours and be brushed until she was bald! Well, not really, but you get the idea. Domino and Buffy, hate it, can't stand it. I've tried different brushes, the bristle ones, the ones with the rubber nubbs. They go into like a "defense mode" sort of. Does anyone know anything I can do to help my scaredycats get over this, because they have to be groomed. It's getting warmer and they are shedding, and when I pet them I need a trash bag next to me so I can put the hair that is rubbed off in there. Please help.
