    They LOVE it. Mine roll in the sand and play with their tails! They certainly aren’t being tortured. My 3 get lion cuts twice a year without any sedation. Leave the fun groomers alone!

    Unless they need to shaved for a medical reason like surgery or extreme painful mats in parts of their fur, this almost borders on animal cruelty. They need to regulate their body temps (hot or cold) shaving also poses a risk to cut or nick their thin skin. Leave them alone. Plus, what are these narcissistic pet owners gaining at the pets expense. Sad

    People who dye cats colors are either foolishly ignorant, or evil, and are perpetuating abuses of animal fighting rings.

    This is pretty cruel and sad. Please stop. Cats are perfect as they are. Owners need to brush them on a regular basis, they’ll stay mat free! Feel that’s too much hassle…try a short haired cat. Use your brains, people!

    So sorry for the poor cats being shaved and cut like this. Only reason to shave a cat is in case of serious skin problem or injury or badly matted fur. Cats are cats and should look like the beautiful animals they are. Poor cats also have feelings and probably feel humiliated cut like this and being laughed, or stared at or so many pictures taken. Seems cruel to me.

    I don’t think a pretty kitty needs to fi through the torture of then having to be humiliated afterwards. Cats get humiliated easily. They know they are pretty just the way they are. They aren’t stupid creatures. Do it to your own head of hair.

    This practice removes protections from cold temperatures which they hate, carcinogenic sun rays if the cats are outside, & scratches from objects & other cats. These cats look miserable.

    This is disgusting. Leave the poor animals alone! If you want to be “trendy”, get your own hair cut like this to make yourself look stupid and be cold in this awful weather. Cats look best the way nature intended them to look – with a full, beautiful coat.

    Frankly I love it. A beautiful alternative to the matted first on the longer haired cats. I have a rescue that was so matted and they did a lion cut on her. She was so happy. Keep our pets happy.

    I wonder how the cats feel about it. To bad they can’t talk. I guess when all the crazy ideas run out on people you have to try things on animals.

    I LOVE THEM!!!!! We got used to poodles and their silly pom pons; bichon frise with their little round, fluffy, perfectly white faces; clipped ears and tails on other breeds; why not cats? I’ve had a long-haired dachshund and a domestic long-hair cat and shaved them both during summer months. They loved it and no more matted fur!

    Are these 13 year olds doing this? Cats have natural beautiful coats and need them to regulate their body temperature. And those who dye them colors, do you realize what that dye can do to their livers, etc? Get some dolls and play dress up, or even better do this to your own idiotic heads. Leave beautiful cats alone, freaks!

    This is so unnecessary. Cats are beautiful as they are, no need to go to these lengths. It’s seems it’s more about the owners than the cats!

    Why are people so “f*****g” stupid and thoughtless. Their beauty should be left in tack along with their individual coloured coats to keep them warm.

    Awful. People who do this don’t understand or respect cats, but are treating them like decorative toys. Cats’ natural coats are both beautiful and important in regulating their body temperature. Owners should cut their own hair like this and leave the cats alone.

    That is the most di s respectable thing anyone can do to a cat or even a dog. Get a life and get a stuffed animal. Cats are susceptible to cold and then you cut the hair off. I don’t understand and I hope something will be done about this. Please groomers refuse to do theirs cuts. Help save these cats who have no way to protect themselves. Shame on all of you that have or are going to do that to your cat.

    Personally, I don’t think cats need more grooming than just a good brushing. How often depends on what type of fur they have. This dying and sculpting their fur is all about the owners ego. The cat probably hates it because you screwed up their fur. I think they would probably want to be left alone and not turned into a piece of topiary. Just leave them in their natural state cuz it probably feels pretty weird to be like that.

    No no no no no no no! Dogs & cats aren’t blank canvases to paint or blocks of material to sculpt—they’re living, sentient beings. Cats should only be shaved for medical reasons. It’s different when you do stuff like tattoos & extreme hair on yourself—it’s your choice. Also, some of them creep me out, it looks like they’ve been carved into! (That 3rd one—the brown tabby & white. 😬)

    Long hair cats absolutely needs to be shaved because owner dont know how to maintain their animal. I have been a groomer since 33 years and i saw so many cats that needed it so much. Usually Its for their confort not for the look .So stop being so offended Its for their own well being.
