    Thank-you, that was helpful!
    I read somewhere that I should use scissors myself, but now I’ve listened to you, I will definitely not do that.
    Thanks a bunch!

    Just recently i was cutting mats out my cats fur while he was sleeping, i was so scared and nervous because i didn’t want my cat to jump up and attack me, but now after watching this. I’ll be sure to buy a cat brush that’s specifically for getting the mats out my cats fur. whew! luckily I didn’t get attacked when my cat woke up.

    My kitteh is a Coon. He gets combed daily and doesn’t really have a problem. Like the vet said. Prevention is key. I did however cut a mat in half recently by his back leg. You don’t need to cut the whole thing off. Cut it in half and comb it out, and he’ll be right as rain.
