Well my female cat hates being brushed. I have to brush her because long coat makes her prone to hairballs. She play fights with the brush, bites it and gently nips my hands. Every time I try to brush her tummy area she then becomes very angry and her claws come out. I don't understand. My other cats enjoy being brushed and happily embrace being groomed! !shocked

Is there something that I am doing wrong?

Does your cat dislike the brush?

It's not the comb if the other cats enjoy it.

tell me about it.
some cats just refuse to be touched.
my cat used to love playing with us, now then its old, it can't stand being touched, brushed by us. lol
occasionally when its in super good mood, it may purr and come to us for some light petting

You're right, its a PURRsonality thing ;). I noticed her observing the hair collected off the comb. She must be misunderstanding my intentions, believing I'm collecting her hair for my own purposes. Obviously not true. Hehe!

You can use a Feliway calming spray containing synthetic pheromone. Helps reduce signs of stress leaving them calmer in their environment. Have a look at www.feliway.com/au

This could be a possible explanation as to why pets are so well behaved at the vets. Is there a spray for grumpy people:-)
