My scissors are not working. How sharp is this tool and where can we get one. How much a groomer generally cost for animals?
I did not buy my long haired cat, I rescued her. She does not like being brushed, and never has. She is pretty good about getting her mats out (my vacuum cleaner can attest to that!). but she does need help. She is 15 years old, and I absolutely will not torment her with a groomer, or anaesthetize her to get her mats out. I very cautiously use scissors.
I read elsewhere that using mineral, baby or olive oil applied to the mats causes them to fall out after two days or so.
thank u so much! I’ve run across ur videos many times and appreciate ur time.
I don’t understand why people buy long-haired cats, if they don’t brush them everyday or even once in two days. I think it’s really cruel of them. I have a persian cat and I brush her everyday, because I know she needs this from me and I’m responsible for her. It’s simple: I don’t brush her – she suffers from mats and it really is painful for a cat to have them! I realized this when I saw my friend’s persian, with its fur all covered in mats. I couldn’t believe my eyes..
OMG ThiS Cat IS BeAuTiFuL
i just cut it with siccors, but i cut it out layer by layer, it takes like about 5 mins to cut out 1 patch of matted fur haha
Thank-you, that was helpful!
I read somewhere that I should use scissors myself, but now I’ve listened to you, I will definitely not do that.
Thanks a bunch!
