Our Happy Tails Professional Groomer Will Groom Your Cats!
Matted Cats: Whether long hair or short hair, purebred or domestic, cats get matted over time. While regular combing will help to prevent the mats, the best defense is a thorough degreasing bath and blow dry. This is where the Happy Tails professional groomers come in.
Cats are naturally oily. Their skin produces oil that spreads throughout the coat if given enough time. Some cats are greasier than others and some become greasier with time, especially if they have certain health issues.
Cats naturally shed. This is true regardless of coat length. In fact, short hair cats usually shed more than long hair breeds. As the hair sheds, the greasiness of the coat makes it gummy enough to cause some of the shedding hair to stick to the hair that is not shedding. This, in turn, creates a small tangle. Usually these small tangles are imperceptible to the eye and are hidden in the coat, making them easy to miss when petting or combing the cat.
With time, hair continues to shed under and around the tangle. Instead of falling away, it sticks to the existing tangle, making it bigger. At this point, it becomes a mat. Several mats can form at one time, in various places on a cat’s body. Eventually, if left to themselves, these mats will come together to create one giant mat or pelt. The pelt also begins to pull closer to the skin at this point. If too much time goes by before it is removed, the pelt will be so close to the skin that sores can develop underneath.
