When a kitty’s skin and coat has been left to accumulate oils, dead hair, dead skin and debris, tangles and mats may worsen into a thick pelted mess. When kitty is severely matted or pelted, a lion cut to remove the mats, followed by a bath and blow dry, will give a clean slate for healthy skin and coat to regrow. Shaving a cat which is pelted or matted will dramatically change the appearance of the cat, which can cause some dismay for both the cat and the owner! It may also expose pre-existing skin conditions, including mat “scarring”.
