    It’s called animal abuse! These poor cats cannot speak for themselves so respect your cat!

    I don’t like it at all.

    Why would anyone take on a creature as beautiful as a cat, to just destroy it for their own amusement? It is nothing but animal abuse. If they”re making their pet look ridiculous for their own entertainment showing no respect for their cat’s dignity and welfare, what else are they subjecting them to?

    No no no!!!!!

    Sad people trying to connect with other people online by abusing their pets. Maybe they should try actually connecting with other people in person but that would be too scary and too inconvenient.

    Not a fan of doing this to your beloved cat nor do I believe they enjoy it. ☹️

    Definitely cruelty to animals. How are they supposed to properly regulate their temperature??

    Poor cats. They all look pissed.

    That is one of the most cruel acts ive seen . They all should be reported. Their fur is what regulates their body temperature. Shame on the groomer who agreed to do this.

    Just as bad as dressing them up in stupid clothes, let them be cats, this cats look angry and I don’t blame them

    Totally agree with the cruelty comments and want to say that I am guessing that no cat would tolerate such a clipping so on top of the obvious wrong doings by groomers, it seems that someone trained in sedation/anaesthesia was also involved. Dangerous to the animal and puts them at risk of harm for human amusement. Please stop doing this to these poor defenceless animals (that you claim to love) and stop to think!

    I think its hilarious!

    Lighten up, people! It’s all in fun and doesn’t hurt the catd in the least. “Regulate body temperature?” Phaw! They’re warm-blooded. Body temperature is regulated by their metabolism.

    For one of 5e comments be,ow, how is this animal abuse? They are being shaved probably because of summer time and fur specially long hair gets hot. So why they shaved some of the hair to look like a dinosaur but there is zero abuse. You get hair cuts on a regular basis, no different than a dog or cat gettin a hair cut.

    Sick!

    Why would you put your beloved cat through this torture? God made them beautiful just the way they are. Furry animals coats have specific functions: cleanliness, warm/cold, protect their skin among just a few reasons for their furry coats.

    i think its terible

    Fabulous!!! πŸ’— Kool summer cuts!!!! πŸ‘Œ If cats don’t want you to do this …. you won’t be able to! Just try it sometime! πŸ˜‚

    I have a part manecoon. If you know these cats they are big and lots of long fur. My cat is Milo and he is 13. I have just started this year to shave him. He does not look grumpy. I give him a phoa hock and leave his tail. He does not fight or bite while I’m clipping him. In fact he likes the motion of the clipper. This is not cruelty at all. It cools him for the summer and he finds it easier to get around. People, stop judging by what you see and find out facts. I have had four cats Milo is the only one left. He just lost his two brothers in the last few years. I would not ABUSE my cat. I am also a hairstylist so I know what im doing. There are bigger things in this world to be worried about!!!!

    Do it to yourself and leave the poor cats alone. 😿

    I think this is horrible! Why do this to these poor animals? Cats are beautiful and shouldn’t be subject to this. Some people really need to get a life!😑😑😑

    This is animal abuse! The owners should be thrown in a prison!
    That is also dangerous since hair is the first barrier against diseases in cats!

    My cat loves the groomer clipping him. He smooches up to her the whole time. Never uses sedation. I wouldn’t do it if my cat showed signs of distress. But he loves it & plays like a kitten afterwards. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
    I’ll keep clipping him while he likes it. πŸ˜€πŸ‘
    People need to lighten up a bit.

    My cat has to be shaved once a year his hair gets so matted he cant groom himself and he hates getting it cut and I hate having to take him there but I wouldn’t do this and turn him into a freak show

    They sure don’t look happy about it.

    These animals are not your accessories. What a narcissistic, stupid thing to do.

    I feel sorry for the cats who had to endure this

    Of course a stupid trend like that would come from Instagram. Bunch of f**king idiots with zero brain cells.

    I have a long haired cat who does not like to be brushed, and by July, if we didnt shave her, she would be matted and tangled and a mess. The fur felts up under her tail, and in her joints, so she ends up stuck together.
    I could put up with the hairballs but when she cannot clean herself, something needs to be done.
    She gets shaved usually mid June, and has lots of places to curl up and nap inside and outside, in the sun and shade.
