aggressive cat: Question by a6yfa6: Persian cat gets aggressive when I try to groom? How can I et him used to it so he won’t get hairballs?
I have 2 persian cats that are 6 months old, 1 loves to get groomed so much and the other hates it. When I try to comb/brush his hair he scratches and bites me. I’ve tried using a brush, a metal comb, but nothing that he likes. I tried doing it fast and slow, and even try when he is sleeping but he wakes up and starts to scratch me or run away. How can I get he used to grooming? I just want to keep him clean and avoid hairballs, but I’m already scared to touch him with a brush

Some cats never get used to it, so put on a glove when grooming the fiesty one. As hard as it is, he does need to be groomed. You may also consider getting him a sanitary cut for his rear end because if he is this upset over grooming that area will really get him mad.
