How to get "burrs" out of a longhair cat

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a longhair cat and he gets little burrs stuck in his fur and they seem to be almost impossible to remove. I guess when he goes outside he rolls in the grass and gets them stuck in his hair.

Any recommendations without having to cut them out?

Hmm, my dog gets them in her paws when we take her to the shore... I just bite the bullet and pull them out with my fingers - maybe put on a pair of tough gloves and just pick them out...

Some people say peanutbutter works. I cut them out of my kits hair - it grows back and it's less painful for both of us.

If they are stuck pretty good and you cannot pull them out (hold your fingers close to the skin at the base of the hairs and pull with the other hand), then you have no choice but to cut them out.

I'd keep your longhair cat inside so you don't have to worry about burrs or other things getting in the fur.

yea but if i leave him inside he will annoy me until i let him out (waking me up in the middle of the night, attacking my feet, scratching furniture to get my attention etc etc)

Ours do that all the time - doesn't mean they want to be outside. Its normal cat behavior
