If you have ever owned an aggressive cat, you know that they can be a challenge at times.
They can be loud, destructive, and even potentially dangerous.
But no matter how aggressive they are, there are ways that you can keep your cat from attacking you. And by learning how to properly care for an aggressive cat, you will be able to teach them to behave themselves and help you avoid any issues with your neighbors or the authorities.

Use The Right Tools

And while you don’t want to use a brush on a cat, you do want to make sure that you have one that is going to be gentle enough not to hurt the cat.
You also want to make sure that you have a nail clipper on hand, along with some tweezers and a comb. All of these tools will be useful as you groom your cat.
