I’m sure you’ve heard the tell tale sound of “ack ack ack” signalling that a hairball is on it’s way! Why do cats get hairballs? It’s from swallowing hair that they’ve licked up while grooming themselves.
That’s the # 1 reason your cat needs to get a bath when shedding. (Of course if kitty gets dirty or has been ill and needs to be refreshed, a bath is needed too!)
