Re: Meet Monty and Julian!

You have 2 very handsome boys. I have a question about Julian's lion cut. Why did you do it? How often do you get it done? Does he mind? My Taz has been getting all sorts of knots and clumpies- I am going have to trim his stomach, and wonder if I should just get him shaved all the way down.

Re: Meet Monty and Julian!

Thanks guys!

Leazie, regarding Julian's lion cut, it had to be done in this case. When we adopted him, he was heavily matted. There were really hard clumps of hair which made it very impossible to untangle and it would be very painful for Julian. The vet said that when the hair is severely matted, it makes the cat very uncomfortable.

Julian's previous family had another cat who passed away last December 2008. Since then, Julian has been very withdrawn and he wasn't grooming himself. Then the family adopted a new dog which stressed out Julian more.

So when we adopted him, our vet said that it would be better to shave it all off and brush it daily once it grows back. Its the most wonderful thing. Prior to being shaved, Julian would be rolling on the floor on his back. We surmise that it was because it was very uncomfortable/itchy/painful. Since the lion cut, he has never done it and he has been more agile and he seems to be happier.

The vet said that it could be done once a year. We just have to make sure that he is brushed several times daily. He was put under anesthesia when it was done so as to prevent any undue stress on him. Initially, we thought the lion cut could be done without sedation/anesthesia. However, the vet said that in his case, he had to be at least sedated.

Re: Meet Monty and Julian!

Rookie had the lion cut at one time too because of bad matting (in spite of daily brushing -- she just wouldn't let us get at certain parts where the mats were). They do end up kind of funny looking, but I've got to believe she liked having the mats gone!

Monty and Julian are adorable! They look so happy too. No doubt Julian is happy with the lion cut...much better than the alternative matting!
