I have a cat with a lot of hair.  The hair tends to get matted, is there a good way to prevent this from hapenning?

You should try to brush him daily.  My owner does that for me, and my hair never gets tangled.  It also feel really good and makes me happy

OH! I have tried many things, and just "Clipping" seems to work best. My cat is a longer haired variety and she goes outdoors a lot and her hair gets really tangled. I comb her daily and clip the big clumps. She will tolerate the grooming with your TLC. Good luck and let me know what works for you Candace Lee

I don't understand how a cats hair could get matted? Of all the cats I've had I've never had one that got matted. I have 5 cats right now, I brush their hair a few times a week & they're good to go. But my cats stay inside. I would never dream of  letting them outside! Fences don't hold cats. Anyone in the neighborhood could pick them up & keep them & I'd never know it. I don't know why anyone would let their cats outside unless they lived on acres of land between other people. It's not for everyone I guess, but I'd be devastated if one of my kitties didn't come home!
