Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm confused. My cat Tazzie had to go to the vet Wednesday to get his back checked. The vet said it was just a section of matted hair & he had to shave it. He said he'd prefer to shave all of him because it would grow back evenly and just overall be better that way. Our regular vet wasn't there & this guy has taken over for him. I didnt know what was the best thing to do so I said ok. Now I know that at least for Tazzie, I made the wrong decision. He isn't a totally tame cat although much better than 4 yrs ago. He is having a hard time being shaved and seems like laying down in any position hurts him. How long does it take fur to grow back generally? He has short to medium fur. Is he cold? I know cats regulate temperature but sometimes he seems like he is cold. He has plenty of comfy places to lay down but his will only hunch down with his paws still supporting him some and isnt really sleeping or resting the way he normally does. Is this normal after shaving?
