Step 1: Gather your materials
To groom your long haired cat you will need the following:
A second person to hold/restrain your feline friend
Trimmers along with attachments
Towels or rags
*if your cat has greasy patches or matted clumps you may additionally need:
Step 2: Select a location for grooming
It has been my experience that grooming usually works best in an uncarpeted room. Trying to remove large amounts of cat hair from carpet with a normal vacuum cleaner is a huge pain, not to mention it will clog up your vacuum. I would also suggest grooming your cat on a counter or table. Your cat may not enjoy the elevation but it will make the entire process much easier. I usually groom my little fur ball on the kitchen table.
