Although it is still cold, days get steadily larger and soon also temperatures will rise again with the begin of Spring in the second half of March.
Our cats will be more activ and begin to loose their winter coat. During the time of the fur change it's important to brush even shorthair cats more as usual to help them with their own grooming and avoid excessevely ingestion of hair.
