- Does your cat enjoy being brushed? If so, then I would brush for a good 5-10 minutes. The frequency would depend on your schedule as well as the quantity of fur your cat has. Cat fur quantity differs from cat to cat and can differ because of 1. where they live, 2. what they eat, 3. what season it is, 4. genetic make-up of cat and more
- If you’re brushing a cat that hates being brushed, then you want to brush until s/he won’t tolerate it anymore – much like my cats. They start their annoyed meows almost as soon as I pull out the brush or comb – and when they start to turn around to bite me or the brush, then I know they have had it. There is no reason to put them through it more at that time. However, since I can’t brush them for very long – I try to brush them more consistently, especially if the season is changing as they shed or gain a lot of coat at those times.

How would you answer this question, "Can you brush your cat too much?" A reader asked the other day how long she should brush her cat and if you can ever overdo it. I used the EZ-Groomer on Trigg in this short GIF – it's a great one for Trigg and Charlie because they do not enjoy being groomed – so I can only brush them for a short amount of time. The EZ-Groomer is super effective, so it helps me get the job done faster, which makes all of us happy.
