Lion Cuts ð¦ð Badly matted cats often require a full clip, otherwise known as a lion cut as their fur has become so matted that either the whole body or more than 75% of the body requires clipping and with only very small amounts of matt free fur left, it's better to start again and give a full clip leaving only head, boots and tail ð
A lion clip is not a "quick fix" and without regular grooms every 12 weeks after the initial clip, the cats fur will start to matt again.
As the fur grows back after the clip, so does the undercoat and just because the cats fur looks shorter it doesn't mean matting won't start to occur, the only way to keep your cat knot, tangle and matt free is with regular grooming.
Dry grooms without matt's are cheaper than lion cuts, are less time consuming and therefore in time your cat learns to enjoy his groom as there are no difficult matts to remove.
Matted fur can be very painful for cats, holds flea dirt and skin irritation can occur underneath the matting, in severe cases of matting and pelting the matt can pull at the skin so badly that the paper thin skin can tear.
Regular grooming eliminates upto 90% of shed hair in your home, keeps hairballs at bay, that your cat will eventually cough up and keeps the coat in excellent condition.
Cats need grooming anywhere between every 6 and 12 weeks depending on their coat type.
