Rikkitic:

 

My kitten Tuffy has long hair that is very badly matted. There are matts everywhere, some close to the skin making them very difficult to remove. I have been able to comb a few out but it is a fairly impossible task and it is hard to do it without hurting him. I have looked for groomers in Hawke's Bay but they all only do dogs. At least, none advertise cat services. Does anyone have any ideas about how to solve this?

 

 

 

 

@Rikkitic Take her/him to the vet and they will do it, We had the same with out cat who is getting old and missing a few teeth and find its hard to groom himself.

 

They put him out to it and groomed him all up, when he came out he looked like one of those cats that has zero hair, he sulked for a good month lol. Fur grew back pretty quickly though.

As JaseNZ stated let the vet do it - start afresh - Tuffy will appreciate it in the long run so will you.

 

And as I stated earlier get yourself and Tuffy this grooming brush: Kong Zoom Groom Cat Grooming Brush they are the best. They groom and massage in all one. We are on our 2nd in 20 odd years and all our cats have gone orgasmic when groomed with it.

In 9 days we pick up our new puppy!

 

 

 

Our last dog, Charlie (he's back there in the thread somewhere), died in February. He had Cushings syndrome which took him from us far too soon, he was only 10.

 

We decided at the time that we would go pet-free for a while, since we've always had a cat or dog around for the last 28 years. Turns out we're not pet-free people. There was a huge hole in the household, kinda furry-shaped, with 4 legs.

 

So we looked around, and looked around to try and find the perfect wee pup for our particular household. All the dog rescue places, Trademe, the pet shops, friends and relations, we looked and we asked around, we talked to people from the Far North, and the Hawke's Bay, and the Wairarapa, and Manawatu, but the puppies were being snapped up so fast, we kept missing out. Finally I saw a listing appear on Trademe, and pinged them immediately. we weren't first in the queue, but we managed to secure the last pup from their litter, a wee bichon/poodle cross. Then we arranged to meet them and the pup before we paid a deposit. It turns out they are literally just around the corner from us! Well under 1km down the road.

 

So we met this little fluffball, and once he is old enough, he will move in with us and begin taking over the house.
