Grooming

What is a good way to brush my girls?
Jodi hates the brush (I been using a gentle cat brush...if you can recommend something else,I am all eas),but Jillian don't seem to mind too much.


I find it kinda hard brushing Jodi out as she chatters angrily at the brush,won't keep still and kicks my hand away.But without brushing her,she gets that unkempt look!

Solution for brushing...I use a soft bristled nail brush which seems to work.
Jodi HATES being brushed,but Jillian seems to enjoy it.Jodi is constantly squirming and kicked the brush,but I manage to get it done.
