Only the central fur along his back was clear of matts due to the fact that this was the only place on his body he allowed his owners to comb.I was already warned that he hated being groomed but entered the home with confidence that my expertise in handling cats like this would shine through and Kajal would be manageable.
If you manage to survive with only a few scratches, consider yourself lucky.
Then comes the "drive of doom," where he will demonstrate his well-developed hissing and howling talents, followed by an excruciatingly long wait in the clinic's lobby, where your cat will either retreat into the fetal position in the corner of his carrier or pace wildly within it, meowing at you in what sounds a lot like the feline version of profanity.
Was that the type of trap that you bait with food in the back of the cage and when the cat enters to eat, the door closes behind him?
These are some of the commonly agreed upon behavioral symptoms of canine cognitive dysfunction (dog dementia).
This was one rare time whereby I had failed to actually ask the client how matted their cats’ coat was!
