matted cat advice
Hi everyone. I'm new here and I hope someone can help me out. Our cat, Bitsey, is a part Siamese and almost 18 years old. She has stopped grooming herself and has become very matted. We've never had to groom her much before, and the mats got pretty bad before we realized there was a problem. Is there anything we can do besides take her to a groomer and have her shaved? We are in a rural area and the nearest groomer would be an hour away. She has anxiety issues and does not do well in the car. And I know it would really freak her out to be shaved. Is there anything else we can do to get rid of the mats? Thanks for any help.
