Because she doesn't like to be brushed. And because of that her fur has dreadlocked.

Whenever I try to brush her she tries to claw me. It's ridiculous.

One of my cats is like that too (and of course is one of the two I have with long hair). She really hates to be brushed and will claw and bite like crazy when I try.

I should schedule her for a shave as well. I have to admit I've been putting it off because I feel like such a bad kitty mommy when I take her in looking like that, especially to my new vet.

She's a spoiled brat! But I love my little monkey. (my nickname for her because she climbs in the highest places)

can you kind of keep her down by sitting/squatting on her? Or wearing very thick gloves?

She flips out when we try to do that.

When Beckham does it, you can see right away what it is (either part of a leaf/stick, a macaroni noodle, or a piece of something inorganic he ate off the carpet).

Poor Mia
I've been really lucky with Mia in terms of hairballs - she rarely, if ever, gets them.

I think Trevor was spot on - it was just literally all her food, so I think her eyes were bigger than her stomach, which is usually the case with her.

I went out as soon as I knew she was ok, and she's purring happily in my lap right now so all's good.

We have a kitty who has that same kind of problem with her fur. She actually doesn't mind being brushed, but she won't tolerate it for long. Eventually we reach a point where we have to shave her down and start over. We do it at home because she shrieks and screams and carries on so badly at the vet's office. Her chart there has gold stars all over it...and that's not because she is a good girl...the stars correspond to bad behavior, not good behavior. Here are some pix:


Before

After

The pile of fur left on the rug after we've shaved her...

What kind of clippers do you use for that, Catlady? I'm thinking the at-home routine might work well for my cat too. She's an absolute terror at the vet. (She is at home too, but I'm used to her. )


And your bottom pic looks a bit like my floor after a cat spat.
