A few months ago, I discovered bumps on my cat’s lower back. I thought they were skin folds, but later realized that they were matted clumps of fur. These can cause skin problems for a cat. They were too thick and hard for me to remove without risk. Solution? A professional groomer. Since her back would have to be nearly shaved to skin, I elected to get the “lion cut”, which takes most of the body down to a few mm of hair, save for a remnant mane, and puffs on the paws and tail. This looks good, gives me a chance to buy the proper grooming tools to prevent future matting, and improves her hygiene.
Ladies and gentlemen, behold The Lioness.
