    Default Kitty lovers: How to groom a grumpy cat??

    Soo I have an 7 year old ragdoll cat who is a docile chill kitty.. but she has never ever let me groom her belly or touch her feet. She hisses and bites. So far she has managed to look after her own belly fluff and I brush the rest of her and it has been fine until now. She now has a matted bit but I canít get anywhere near it without being potentially shredded alive. Any suggestions on how I might be able to convince her to let me help her?

    Ok Ive given her catnip before and the lil snot doesn’t seem that interested. What sort of drugs can you give a cat?

    I promise I will see a vet/groomer soon if I can’t get it done myself. She just breaks out in hives and gets anxiety leaving the house.

    Take her to a groomer and shave her down lion-cut style

    I have a Ragdoll who would cuss at me and act like I was torturing him when I trimmed his nails. I started wrapping him up in a "Purrito" to calm his ass down and it works. He still comments but it's not the growing/hissing cussing out I got before.

    My Raggie loves being brushed so with your cat, you might wanna get some calming spray at PetsMart,or talk to your vet. Ragdolls get some gnarly matts in their hair very quickly.

    lion cuts are hilarious.


    yeah i think the thing is to start grooming them young so they get used to it. the first couple of times i tried trimming boris' claws he would squirm so much it was impossible. i'm lucky he doesn't scratch or bite but it was still a two person job. i would wrap him in a towel like a burrito and then take out one paw at a time. we had to do the burrito twice, after that he would let me trim his claws on his own, and it got easier each time. 7 is not that old so i think you can start with the towel burrito and get someone else to assist, and hopefully each time will be less unpleasant. you could also try natural drugs, i know my vet game me some natural drops for when i traveled with boris (i ended up having to go with real drugs because natural ones weren't enough to calm him down on a plane and he had to get kitty valium but i digress).

    Although a burrito won’t help for belly fluff grooming. You might just have to enlist someone to help, maybe just burrito her legs and have someone else hold her paws while you groom. And of course tons of treats after.

    Thanks for posting her photo Witchy, the forum won’t let me.

    I’ve managed to cut a bit of one with my partner helping out before she got too hissy. She has an appointment tomorrow to get it sorted. No idea how they are planning on doing it but they seem confident. Thanks for the ideas!
