Cat training tip - Cats naturally groom themselves and can take offense when you try to help them.
Here's a cat grooming tip on how to get your cats or kittens comfortable with regular cat grooming - Try purchasing two identical brushes. Start brushing your cat with one of the brushes, when she reaches around and grabs that brush, let her have it. Then pick up the second brush and continue brushing. Whenever she grabs the brush you are using, just pick up the other one and continue brushing.
Eventually, your kitty will learn that you are not hurting her, and that this cat grooming actually feels good.
