clipping cats

Post by Susanne on Tue Dec 22, 2009 12:30 am

is it the same for cats as it is for the dogs, does clipping annually/bi-annually cause the coat to become thicker?

Had an emergency call from a girl who is looking after my customers cat, and she had it to the vet cos it was feeling unwell, the vet said cos of the furballs and matting it should be clipped off completely. This cat was not matted (none at all), moulting a little and I had clipped its belly about 2 months ago so the belly was relatively short anyhow. I clipped the underbelly shorter and gave it a good brushing & deshed. It didn't seem necessary to clip it all off when it was in good condition. There are other ways of dealing with furballs isn't there?

Any comments would be helpful.

As far as I know, the coat doesn't come back thicker. It hasn't on the one we do regularly anyhow. As for the furballs, there are anti furball foods as far as I know. From a non cat person BTW.

I have a 17 yr old Burmese cat who is having difficulty retracting his claws - one on his outside front R pad has become impacted in the pad of this digit and cannot be pulled out - I need to clip it off then remove it. Does any one know - HOW MUCH OF A CATS CLAW CAN BE CLIPPED BEFORE HITTING THE NERVE??? I Look forward to your suggestions (so does Richard cream burmese).

You can see the quik much easier in a cat. I would think not past the curve but I can't see the toe. If your not sure, you could trim his other nails and you will get a better idea. If not then you may have to vet him.
