In addition to the pups, we have two cats. One persian who has great hair and is easy to care for. Then......we have Joker. A flame point Himalayan who won't let you get near him with a brush and has hair so fine it gets matted like crazy. So about twice a year he goes in for a haircut. Can you tell he's thrilled?
Yeah, he usually goes into grumpy mode for a few days after the haircut - until the other animals stop snickering at him. The first time we had it done, he was neutered at the same time and the other cat hissed at him for two days.
