It is recommended that you talk to your vet if you are concerned about your cat’s health.

Brush your Siamese regularly to keep her fur silky and glossy. This breed sheds less than other breeds, so she will require less brushing than some other breeds.

When grooming Siamese cats, you need a soft, well-brushed brush with soft bristles. Do not use brushes with stiff bristles as they can scratch your cat’s skin.
