    Help! What will calm my cat for grooming?!
    Anon_76596 posted:
    Hi I have a ten year old long haired orange cat and he is in serious need for a hair cut! I'm not going to take him anywhere to be groomed I just need to cut out some of his clumps and brush him out but he is absolutely impossible to brush because he won't sit still. He isn't aggressive in any way he is just uncooperative and likes to roam around and rub his head on stuff and won't sit still long enough for me to get anywhere on cutting his hair! He is very loving and nice and if I could just figure out a way to calm him down I know he would be fine with me doing it.. I don't know of any medications you can give a cat that are safe... I have heard of something called rescue remedy but does anyone have advice on what I could give him?? Thanks in advance!
