That's good to know!
As for his grooming, I do it every day and he rarely gets a mat now. Our routine is this:
I come home from work, grab the treats and the comb and pat the 3rd level on the cat tree. He jumps up, gets a treat and I start combing one part at a time. He gets a treat in between each "section". The whole process lasts about 2 minutes. This is the length of time it takes for me to start bleeding
He gets one final treat while I go upstairs to clean my wounds.
He hates it, and he always will. However, he jumps up there each day because he knows he will get treats, and I have learned to be quick about it to avoid extensive damage to my hands. He forgets all about it within seconds, and he is now tangle free 99% of the time.
