De-matting is the process of cutting, shaving, or combing out mats in your cat’s fur. Mats are frequently made up of clumped dead hairs, dead skin cells, outside leftovers, and any other debris your cat has rubbed against. Mats in your cat’s fur are not only ugly but also painful. If they are not removed, they can cause skin irritation and infection.
De-matting a cat is rarely a pleasurable procedure for either the animal or the owner. Because mats are typically difficult to remove in one sitting, it’s crucial to take things slowly and be patient. You may wish to solicit the assistance of a helper because, while this technique is the simplest and least painful way to remove mats, it requires a lot of diligence.
