Hi everyone, one of my long haired cats has become extremely matted, I do brush her regularly with a slicker brush and comb, but she is actually "semi-feral" and won't let me hold her for long. When I first adopted her and her brother I cut the matt off them as they came to me that way, her brother is still no problem - he loves being groomed, but she just won't let me for more than 5 seconds! Most of her fur is fine and silky smooth, its just one patch on her side thats looks awful! I thought about getting her shaved but I wasn't sure as most of her coat is fine, also I don't think the vets etc really do that here in the uk, and I don't think she'd let him near her anyway! (shes a mummys girl only). How do I go about dematting her? - theres no way she'll sit on my lap long enough for me to use a dematter. Any suggestions would really be appreciated! Thanks!
