The Minuet Longhair is a wonderful feline with short legs and a thick coat: how do you best take care of him? Let’s find out all the information about it together, to make sure that our cat always stays at the top and healthy.


Minuet Longhair care: brushing and bathing

Are you wondering how to take care of the Minuet Longhair’s fur? Although this cat’s coat is long, it is not a particularly demanding operation.

In fact, it is sufficient to brush the cat 3-4 times a week, increasing the frequency during the moulting period.

By doing this, you will avoid the formation of knots and hairballs. In addition, you will be able to inspect the cat’s fur, checking for the presence of any parasites.

Which brush to choose to brush the four paws? Long and soft bristles will make this operation pleasant for the feline as well.

To make the cat’s coat shiny and silky, it is essential to take care of its diet.

Bathing the cat yes or no? The answer tends to be no. Cats are very clean animals and attentive to their personal hygiene. In any case, this procedure may prove necessary.

For example, if the cat has returned from an exploration in particularly cramped and dirty holes, or if it has returned from a long illness or an operation.

The key word? Delicacy: use a specific lotion for your cat’s sensitive skin, make sure the water temperature is warm and dry the cat completely after finishing.


Cleaning of teeth, nails, eyes and ears

Finally, we just have to find out how to take care of the nails, eyes, ears and oral hygiene of the Minuet Longhair.

Cleaning your cat’s teeth regularly is essential. In fact, the accumulation of plaque and bacteria would risk causing the onset of unpleasant pathologies, such as gingivitis and stomatitis.

On the market there are special toothbrushes and toothpastes for animals, as well as spreadable creams to be distributed on the teeth of the cat.

To cut the nails to the cat yes or no? It’s not always a good idea. For example, if it is a young and active four-legged, this procedure is completely useless: the feline will sharpen its claws by itself.

If, on the other hand, it is an elderly and sedentary animal, it may be necessary to shorten the cat’s nails. How to do? Bring adequate nail clippers and trim only the non-vascularized portion of the claw.

To recognize it, just note the color: it is the lightest and most white part.

Finally, how to take care of the Minuet Longhair’s eyes and ears? This cleaning procedure is important to prevent the accumulation of eye secretions and earwax from causing scaling and infections in the cat.

To do this, you just need to check the cat regularly, eliminating the secretions with a gauze slightly soaked in warm water.
