Has anyone given their cat a haircut?  My cat's hair is longer than mine!  I think it is too long, and I would like to give her an overall new "do"  but I have heard cats get really freaky when you do this.  Any experiences?  Please reply.....

I used to take my cat to the groomers on a regular basis when it was hot. I have never heard of there being a problem to cut a cats hair. I also trimmed my kitties hair myself very carefully not long ago because she was shedding like crazy and it really helped her. As long as you are 100% careful not to get close to nicking their delicate skin it should be a relief for the kitty especially in the hot weather. A professional groomer would definately be the best option. Good luck with it!

p.s. they look adorable with the lion cut!

Hello,

I work at a pet grooming business and the important thing to know about cats is that there is a much higher risk involved (compared to dogs) when you cut/shave a cat's hair. Cats have very thin, delicate skin underneath their fur, therefore only more experienced and willing pet stylists work on cats. PLEASE DO NOT CUT YOUR KITTEN'S FUR YOURSELF! If you are really set on doing it; please take the little guy to a professional groomer.

I agree w/Squeaks the groomer, DON'T cut your cats hair yourself! Just look at your cats belly,under the sparse hair there. See how thin & delicate the skin is? Just one nick could make a bloody mess outta your cat. If you try buying a grooming brush for a cat & keep them brushed once a day it get all the shedding hair your cat may get in its mouth causing hair balls, as well as keeps shedding hair off of furniture & carpeting. But cutting their hair, I believe, is unnecessary & I've had many cats in my 53 yrs. here on earth! Ha! Have fun w/ your special kitty & give it a good brushing!
