I adopted a stray cat. I've been told it's a ragdoll. He was heavily matted & 1/2 of his body was covered with clumps of burs. The vet says he is about 2-3yrs old. I took him to a groomer. What a terrible experience. He fought bathing, shaving the clumps & nail clipping. He was only mildly aggressive when she combed him. I have only had him since Thanksgiving so I'm still trying to build trust. If I try to brush him he gets nervous & then starts to growl. If I try to comb his tail & back leg areas he fights. Then he acts like he doesn't trust me again. I've always had cats but never one that needed so much brushing. I'm trying to build trust but how can I when it's so important to groom him?
