How often do you comb your hair? Once a year? Once a month?
You comb it every day.
You comb your hair every day to maintain it.
You wouldn’t accept even one mat in your hair.
You like the feel and look of combed hair.
You enjoy feeling clean.
So does everyone you meet.
If your cat has long fur, why assume that she never needs to be combed?
“Cats groom themselves.” “Even the vet says that.”
We used to believe that the earth was flat.
Someone tested that belief. The rest is history.
Don’t believe what you’re told, even if you’re told by an “expert.”
Experts usually have big gaps in their knowledge. No one is an expert about everything.
