Should you Give your Cat a Haircut?
Last week we shared a post on SlimDoggy.com about a German Shepherd who had been given what’s called a “lion’s cut” by their groomer. There was a bit of controversy because the owner was claiming she never approved the buzz cut and the groomer stating she had. Either way, there are just some dogs who should NOT have their coats trimmed or cut.
I didn’t think much about this relative to cats, because I never heard of cats been trimmed or having their haircut – that is until I saw these pictures on the internet!
This seems totally nutty to me, so I investigated the proper grooming for cats and found that indeed cats should NOT be trimmed unless the fur is hopelessly matted. Even then, go a professional groomer in order to have it done correctly.
Even though cats are known to groom themselves, you should still brush your cat and bath them regularly – especially if they are an outdoor cat. YOu can also use grooming powder in between shampoos to keep your cats fur fluffy and prevent matting.
