This is a long standing problem with Ginger. He has extremely thick fur (apart from the spot where he had an op last year, that has never grown as thick, prob cos his body no longer needs such thick fur). Because of how thick and greasy his fur gets, it clumps very very easily (at the mo, brushing him every 2 days isn't enough, clumps have already started in that short space), and he hates having them brushed out, he used to like being brushed, until my neighbour got clumps out by dragging them out, but I have found a way of doing it that he doesnt mind, I do very light strokes, and sort of brush his fur backwards to get the clumps out, he tolerates it anyway!! He also has really bad dandruff. I have just changed his food over to a high meat quality (26-60% depending on flavour) so I am hoping that will make a difference. He is at least 14, and no longer has any teeth. Any ideas or suggestions? He is an indoor/outdoor cat, can't keep him in for 2 long, he hates it.
