Some cat breeds, like the Himalayan or the Persian, require a great deal of commitment when it comes to keeping their coat healthy and shiny. If you’re thinking about a new feline companion, but want one that’s a little lighter on the grooming upkeep, you may want to consider one of the following breeds:
1. Siamese (pictured above): These short-haired kitties have a coat that is relatively easy to maintain. Use a stainless steel comb to remove any knots and extra fur on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
2. Sphynx (left): These hairless cats obviously won’t require any brushing and you won’t have to worry about shedding. However, potential owners should know that weekly baths are necessary to prevent oil buildup and clogged pores.
3. British Shorthair (right): This breed may have a plush coat, but grooming is usually a breeze. A weekly brushing to remove dead hair is typically all these adorable, easygoing cats need to keep looking their best.
