    Kitty probably feels a lot better. His fur will grow out nice and healthy fur, too.

    Did his fur grow back?
    If so, how long did it take please?

    Our cat just has some on the back end, so she may not look totally scalped, just her rear end!

    LOL love the look he gives 🙂 like the cat from that movie 'dogs and cats' … girl is Himlayan x too and she is 15 now and gets these mats, not because of neglect i think it's just the way she 'grooms' herself and age

    Happens very fast with old long haired cats, they don't groom as much plus the added bonus of them not liking to be handled very much. They want you nearby at nearly all times, but also don't want to be bothered.

    Very sweet temperament on this kitty! Glad he got a "haircut" so that he's more comfortable. Hope his new owner maintains his coat now.

    Poor Lou….he's half the cat he was.

    Shame on the owner for allowing this to happen. All those mat pull on the skin then the cat is shaved because of laziness!!!

    I have a persian himmie female with hyperesthia and I taught myself how to remove mats by hand so they never ever get that bad.
    I watched a master cat groomer
    on TV & she said 'you have to learn the anatomy of a cat.'

    My cat has extreme matting, but he is in pain and attacks me if I try to dematt him. PetSmart won't help because they don't groom cats in the evening. I can't take a day off work to take him there

    You are all going to hate me now, but it's the truth. This problem is why it's natural for cats to be short-haired. All our breeding is giving our kitties problems they're not supposed to have. I love cats in all forms, but videos like this, or when naked cats have blackhead problems, is a sign cat breeding has gone too far. I hate that years of human egoism and beauty standards now cause unnecessary suffering. We are supposed to give them a safer life than in the wild, not give them new problems. I want all kitties to be happy and healthy! 🙁

    This is what happens when you have a lazy owner.

    Looks like the grandmother may not have been able to take care of the cat's grooming, but at least the new "owner" took him to the groomer. I'm sure Lou was much happier without those mats!

    You need to regularly brush your cat.
    It's really not that hard. Your cat loves it too.

    I don’t think it’s laziness some elderly people cannot keep up grooming these extreme long haired cats sadly.

    Low noise clippers are a thing. Get some. Yikes.

    at least they did not put him under. That is std practice at my vet which is why I bought my own clippers.

    i have 2 long hair cats. 1 domestic long haired and 1 main coon mix. their fur gets matted A LOT. we really have to be vigilant about brushing them or it gets furballs and they are younger and fight like hell when i try to shave them. its never this easy

    Seriously, I could have done that sweet kitty in 10 minutes with my sheep sheers. Using those clippers for mats is a waste of time and a serious abuse of the animal.

    I have a overweight cat that my adult daughter left here when she ran off, was very disrespectful, & still hasn't exactly gotten her act together. I am in very poor health myself…fighting leukemia and 3 other autoimmune diseases. The cat is 9 years old & only got this way this past spring. I haven't had the money to take her to anyone. I am so afraid to try this myself. I don't want to hurt her & I am the only person the cat will let near it. My husband & younger daughter tried to help with her. So did my sis-in-law. She won't let any of them near her. She will let me pet her but often turns around & tears me up. I have recently heard about working corn starch into the mats. So I am trying that with a little gentle brushing each day now. If I can get her to a good enough point I will then try the bathing. I have three of my own cats who I have never bathed. Usually only have to brush them occasionally. This cat isn't even what you would call a long hair cat. Pray for me to get her cleared up. She isn't quite as bad as this cat in the video. The only problem is on her high back where she must not be able to reach anymore.
