|Being that she is LH, it is something she should be taught to do. But
being that she has a fear of the brush or comb, its just going to be a very
long process, and just be very patient with her.
Ellie and Khina gave some great advice. Just keep the grooming sessions
very short, and end on a positive note.
If your home allows it, pick a spot to always groom her, a table is best.
Set her on the table, give her a treat. This way she associates being put
on the table, with something positive. Keep the sessions very very short,
and always end on a positive note. Pet her, praise her, talk to her. Give her
a treat when she is done.
I start my show kittens with a human baby brush, it is very soft, and only
a few brushes/swipes, at a time, then let them go. I also distract them with
They associate being groomed with positive things, the treat, the toy, and
not being forced.
As she gets more comfortable with this, and again, its going to be a long
process, you can work up to the combs and brushes.
Remember lots of patience and praise. Best of luck.
