    If you have fought this problem like we have you would agree that this deserves a public announcement. :biggrin: Of the many cats that we've had we only had one with long hair - a silver-shaded Chinchilla Persian. But she was strictly an indoor cat so she was relatively easy to manage. Over that last couple of years we have acquired two, indoor-outdoor, long haired cats. :surprised What a mess!!! We have really struggled to control the matting problem with their coats and just learned about and purchased a mat comb. If you have long hair cats that get matted, this is a must. It's well worth the $20 for a quality comb. They make them for dogs as well. The combs have upward facing blades that cut the mat from the bottom up.


    Besides, it seemed to be time for another pet thread. :biggrin: Lets see them pics.

    That cat is adorable! dduardo did a great job--the evil eye is hilarious, and these are skills I too would like to acquire. So with all the land and many critters that Ivan and Tsu have, maybe they could start a zoo? Of course pictures like this make me want a pet--stop it!

    Aha! So that's why you were running around shaving kitty cats! :biggrin:

    I think the mat-comb will work much better. And it sure beats taking 'em to the vet for an $80 haircut.

    My cats have all been shorthairs, but I do have a problem with them shedding. I use those lint rollers constantly to try to get the cat hair up.

    When I had my cat, I used his brush to get the hair off the sofa--worked great. (I tried to vacuum him once--oh boy!)

    I'm more concerned with the Hitler 'stache. :bugeye:

    I used to have one of those, but it got lost. Instead of buying a new one, I now wrap duct tape around a beer can with the sticky side out. It works better than the first one.

    That, I learned the hard way, is also not recommended for parakeets. (And anybody who says that sound doesn't carry in a vacuum has obviously never tried it. I could hear the damned thing squawking for 2 days.)

    I know, you got the idea for duct tape from the Red Green show (love that show)! I think the lint roller is somewhere on your dining room table... :rolleyes:

    I'm not gonna quote the message. I think you know why :surprised

    Very nice and fluffy cats :approve: :biggrin: However, is that kitten supposed to be a red X? :cry:

    awwww, I am thinking about getting a cat. I really like the tabbies, they look like tigers! :smile:

    Seriously, I'm going to decrease the size of those guys a bit, though... :uhh:

    I would actually love a tiger cub for a pet..although when it grows up, it might eat my head :uhh:

    They are like tigers... especially in the morning when they demand you get out of bed and fix them breakfast! :biggrin:

    Sorry to break up the cat theme, but I only have ectotherms. The tortoise, a greek, is Argos (Gus for short) and the newt is Thomas.
