Where would i post something to ask about grooming a cat?
If anyone wants to answer here. my cat is covered in really bad clumps of fur around the top of her back legs and she meows and kicks when i touch them or try to cut them off. Would the clumps be just fur or possible attached to her skin? So would they be safe to just cut off? I dont want to hurt her. She's my baby girl
Thanks again, Leanne

Ouch - don't pull them, as they will be attached to her skin. I wouldn't recommend cutting into them with scissors, as it is very easy to cut their skin that way. I would take her to your vets and ask them to clip them the mats out, then keep an eye on the area in the future, grooming her more often. Good luck!

Leanne, perhaps this one time you could take her to a groomer. From then on, you'll want to keep her combed at least twice a week. The area behind her ears can "hide" from you, so don't miss that! You'll be so happy when you get her back from the groomer. It's well worth the money.

Emma, It looks as though we posted at the same time.

There is a long hair kitty that was recently
surrendered at the shelter I volunteer at.
The clumps are down to her skin. Exactly
how would a vet or groomer get those cut
away without cutting her? Curious to how
this is done.

The groomer would use clippers.
