I have a DLH Tabby and she is fearful of getting groomed. I can’t bring out the brush or she runs and hides. She’s never liked grooming, but she used to let me brush her. She’s gotten worse about it since we moved about a year ago. Now she is getting mats since she’s making it impossible to brush her. I think I need to take her to the vet to get some of the mats out. I’m afraid to cut them out since they’re very close to her skin (and I don’t own electric clippers). Any specific suggestions to make grooming less scary for her? Also, any specific brush/grooming tools suggestions for a long-haired cat? My other 2 cats *love* to get brushed, so I am not experienced working with a difficult cat. And to make matters worse, she is my only long-haired. The 2 boys are DSH.
