Keeping the cat clean is of great importance and a cleaning agent will be highly appreciated in this situation. The given space may be littered with germs or other dirt that can enter the cat’s fur. A quick cleaning to ensure the space is sanitary should be done before letting the cat reside.
Ensuring the safety of the cat is important too. There are a number of things to look out for when entering a given space. Maintenance may not have been carried out properly and it’s worth checking that the pen is smooth without sharp grooves. These could potentially hurt the cat or damage its fur, both detrimental to showing condition. Above all else, keeping the cat engaged and happy is essential and should be the centre of efforts leading up to judgement.
