Re: Long Haired Cat advice

Same here...I've had several long hair cats...and they get into a
routine of wanting to be brushed. I left the brush on the laundry room
counter and when I would go in to change a load of laundry over...they
would follow me in there and wait to be brushed. It got to the point
where one of them actually listened for the buzzer go off on the dryer
and he would run in there and wait for me. If I didn't brush him...he'd
knock the brush off onto the floor and start yelling at me "HEY! You
forgot something..helloooooooooooo, brush time, remember!!! HEY"

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Long Haired Cat advice

We've had pretty much nothing but long haired cats.  It is  almost 
impossible to get a mat (almost like felt if it is an old mat and has  gotten 
wet).....my suggestion would be to cut any mats out of the fur, and then  just begin a 
routine to groom the cat.  Daily is not necessary, although  you can.  THey 
will get used to it quickly and actually enjoy  it.  My old cat Flaksey used to 
come every morning for his grooming, if I  didn't have time, he would get 
highly upset until I literally HAD to do it, just  to have peace. LOL  I've 
never had to use a slicker brush (metal) on  our long haired cats.  A comb or a 
bristle brush would do fine.  Cats  (even some dogs) have sensitive skin, and 
don't care for the feel of the  metal.  Long haired cats don't usually get 
matted easily unless they  go outside.  They usually are pretty good about getting 
anything out of  their fur themselves if it is stuck.  A treat after being 
good for the  brushing, doesn't hurt either.

Congratulations on the new kitty.

So, now  what do I do? He's already got a couple of knots in the tail fluff
they  left. I've got a slicker brush, but it barely bounces off the top. What
do  I need?
