Cats seem to be obsessed with personal hygiene: they groom themselves in the morning when they get up, after eating, before going to sleep ... They don't want to feel or be dirty, something that in the wildlife helps them stay protected from possible predators . Although there are no such dangers at home, instinct ... is instinct.
But when we talk about kittens, things change. Even if they have spent their first two months with the mother, they need a little more time to learn how to behave as an adult feline would. Meanwhile we wait, we will tell you how to keep my kitten clean.

Meanwhile, they we can clean the legs with a wet wipe for animals (Do not use for human babies, as the foam dries the felines' skin a lot, causing scales to appear). We can use another to clean their fur and another to keep their eyes clean.
With two months it will be time to get used to brushing. Thus, with a glove-brush or with a soft barbed brush we will brush them little by little while we give them treats for cats. So, we will get you to like it.
