    That was one of the most weirdly entertaining videos I've ever seen. What a cutie! And so amenable.If I tried what with my cat he'd have my face off.

    Does anyone have advise on the best cat clippers? The pair I had sucked and basically would've taken me like 4 hours lol. Looks like her clippers do the job much easier!
    And Yes! Maine coons are just THAT chill! My girl m.c. is exactly the same way. They have such awesome personalities!

    My cat would NEVER lay there like that. I wish he would but never. He would freak out!

    You make this look SO easy and I love it!  And the position on your lap is just perfect for a tummy shave…..Jai is so relaxed and acting just like a wonderful Maine Coon Cat should!  Our Maine Coon is the same….they are wonderful cats and you are a wonderful groomer!

    How long does it take for the cat to finally be as comfortable with the belly shave as Jai is. My Ragdoll has been done twice a year for at least 3 years and still he is difficult. It takes two of us to get the mats and the belly shave and sanity trim done. I will be moving to a place with no groomers soon and must learn to do this myself or with my hubby and I.

    99% of cats would never let you do this

    Your cat will lie on his back. Mine is a belly protector.

    Hi! Just got my clippers and about to try doing my Himalayan. I was worried about the skin around his armpits and this was very helpful. Also I love how you emphasize treating the cat well rather than overpowering them! <3
    Two questions if you wouldn't mind:
    At first try, using a 1/2" guard (I want SOME fur to protect from ticks and biting insects), I'm not sure how to say this the fur just won't cut.! I had the same issue when I first tried last week with my husband's $20 beard trimmer, and assumed that if I bought a $150 (Andis AGC Ultraedge 2) pet trimmer it would work better, but nope! Is it harder when using guards- maybe I need to try freehanding the length? Or is it the texture of his linty fuzzy fur- maybe it would cut easier if I moistened it or something? Any idea what's going wrong for us?
    Second question is regarding oil. The clippers manual says to oil the blades before, during & after use WITH TOXIC OIL. So then I'd have to shampoo my cat. He hates baths so doing that would teach him to hate getting trimmed. Is there any alternative? Like maybe is there a nontoxic oil that's half decent? I'd accept a shortened blade lifespan as long as the tool would still last a couple years.
    Thanks for the video and extra thanks if you take the time to advise me!
