People think cats are “self-groomers.” Have you ever seen a cat trim their nails or clean their ears? You have seen a cat lick themselves spreading cat saliva all over their bodies. When a person is allergic to a cat, they are actually allergic to the dried cat saliva on the cats body. Cats need grooming just like dogs. If you have a shedding problem in your home, a professional groom that includes a bath and blow dry will solve your problem.
