Cats can spend up to half the day self grooming!  A ritual started with their mothers at birth, grooming is an instinctual act.  Licking and grooming pulls the loose fur out and conditions his skin and coat with his natural oils and saliva which help your cat control his body temperature.  Cats have very unique tongues covered with little “bristles” .  Licking over their skin stimulates their blood circulation, promoting good skin and overall health.   The older our...
