Do people actually style their cats’ fur? Surprisingly, yes. Some even give their cats color highlights and dress them up in clothes, hats, glasses.

Have you ever given your cat a haircut? If you’ve had a long-haired cat that is prone to mats, you have probably taken the scissors to her a time or two—maybe every summer? In days past, when fleas were still a huge problem in California, I used to have my long-haired calico bathed, flea-dipped, and I’d have her belly shaved because that’s where she collected mats. You couldn’t even tell she’d been shaved because of her luxurious fur coat on top. And she was comfortable and mat-free all summer.

My folks used to have their Maine coon cat shaved to get rid of mats and help with flea control. They’d give him a sort of lion cut. Here’s a site showing a variety of cats with a lion cut. https://www.buzzfeed.com/melismashable/50-cats-with-lion-haircuts?utm_term=.bgyryYmvR#.ee9GYxg5o
