Short Hair

Short-haired cats (Siamese, Burmese, etc.) have hair that usually measures less than two inches in length. While the coats of short-haired cats will likely never need significant grooming, it's still a good idea to give the coat a good brush once in a while. First, use a fine-toothed or wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles. Then, use a bristle brush or a soft acrylic brush on the entire coat, brushing in the direction of hair growth. A good brushing will eliminate knots while also removing excess hair.
