I have a long haired domestic cat who hates to be brushed anywhere toward her hind quarters. She has several large balls of matted fur. I tried to shave and clip them off and she growled and hissed. She is a very friendly cat but I believe the comb just pulls and hurts her. I don't have the money to groom her. Any ideas that would help would be greatly appreciated.

I owned a Maine **** for 15 years who developed mats on her britches all the time
The holder need to take kitty firmly by the scruff, the same way Mama cat carries her kittens and wrap the other arm around the cat so it under the arm pit ass out, the other person need to be prepared to work quickly with either short sharp scissors or a good pair of clipper.
The best thing to do is get them early before they get tight against the skin.
You might also want to cut a potty patch so bad things don't happen.
If you keep this area trimmed mats wont develope.
Once my ex left I could no longer do this on my own, I found a groomer close by who would demat Samantha and bath her for $25, the girls loved her and they would schedule her before the doggies would arrive so she wouldn't get stressed out.
