I HIGHLY recommend the lion cut! Go to a cat groomer. You want a groomer that specializes or is atleast comfortable with cats. I get the lion cut for my Persians every few months when/if they start matting. They LOVE it--they instantly become more snugglier and become much less stressed since they don't have to groom so much fur!
Also, my Persians fur ALWAYS grows back just as thick and luscious after their lion cuts. Some people will try to scare you out of it by saying it'll "damage" their coat, but it doesn't.
Not sure where you're located, but in my area, the lion cut for Persians is about $60. It is worth every penny to let the professionals handle it since cats have such thin skin! And it lasts for months before their fur grows back to the full length.
The only way to deal with mats is to prevent them. Unfortunately, I'm just not consistent with brushing so the lion cut is much easier and my cats love it.
