Keep Your Kitten in Pur-r-r-fect Condition
You’ll find that cats are a lot easier than dogs in the grooming and maintenance department because they do a lot of the work for you. Bathing a kitten is rarely needed, as she will do an excellent job herself.

Daily brushing or combing can be an excellent way to bond with your kitten, as well as eliminating stray hairs. Most kittens love to be brushed, so this will become a pleasurable activity for both of you. Pet Supermarket carries a complete line of brushes for long and short-haired kittens, as well as grooming gloves. Our experienced associates can help you choose one that works best for you and your kitten.
The first step in dental care for your pet is to help her learn to accept having her mouth and teeth examined. Start early, examining your kitten’s mouth once a month and eventually brushing her teeth two to three times a week. Pet Supermarket sells superior dental products for cats young and old.
Regular ear care is one of the most overlooked areas of cat health. Good ear care consists of a weekly inspection and, if necessary, a cleaning. If you inspect and clean your kitten’s ears on a weekly basis from the time she is 8 weeks old, it will become a routine part of her life. Use treats during and after the cleaning to keep the experience positive.
To examine your kitten’s ear, hold the tip between your thumb and forefinger and gently roll it up so you can see the inner part of the ear. Gently wipe the inside of the ear with ear-cleaning pads available at Pet Supermarket.
Remember: Pet Supermarket carries a large selection of brushes and other grooming aids, and our experienced associates can answer any questions you have about keeping your kitten perfectly pretty.
