Hi.

I have an 8 month Chartreux and I was wondering a couple of things about her. I just recently found out what breed she was and have been looking up information about her. She doesn't keep herself "clean" like most cats do, so I bathe her and my orange tabby every 1-2 weeks. I haven't read anywhere that I shouldn't bathe her, but I did read on a couple of sites that I shouldn't brush her because of her coat. She sheds a lot but she also seems to really enjoy being brushed. I didn't know I wasn't supposed to, so I dont know if I should continue or cease doing this.

Petsmart's website recommends brushing her 2 times a week, however other websites I have visited dealing with her breed have told me that I shouldn't. Seeing as how much she sheds and how much she enjoys it, should I continue brushing her? It doesn't seem to hurt her in any bit possible.. she actually will walk up to the brush for me.

And since I shouldn't be brushing her, according to these websites, should I be bathing her? Thank you in advance for your help.

Amy
