Should I shave my cat to keep her cool?


Shaving can help Persian, Himalayan, and other long-haired cats feel more comfortable and cooler during the hot summer months. Additionally, shaving will remove mats and tangles and make grooming easier. It is important to have the cat shaved by someone who is experienced and can handle the cat in a way that doesn’t stress the animal out. The most popular style is the lion cut. All of the cat’s fur except around the face, paws, and the tip of the tail is shaved: Adorable! Shaving isn’t appropriate for all cats though. Some become highly stressed, other cats, such as short-haired ones do not benefit from the new hairdo.
