    This is SO VERY WRONG !!!!! Animals have certain coats for a reason !!!! You are taking away their natural protection so that YOU can look the part of a cool cat owner. YOU ARE PUTTING THEM IN DANGER !!!! STOP IT !!!!!!

    cat abuse

    FYI: Long-haired cats with a thick undercoat (Maine Coons, for instance) are routinely groomed, especially in the summer, to help keep them cool and avoid matting of the hard-to-maintain lower layer of fur. It’s not abuse since vet’s offices offer this service called a therapeutic shave.

    Forget the haircut. Some of these cats are so fat they look like they are incapable of walking !

  7. Linda G March 13, 2019

    I think it’s stupid . I’m not a fan of cats but these cat owners are not responsible pet owners as cats have fur for a reason. These cats will need a shrink … e-meow-tional abuse !

    These cats do NOT look happy or relaxed

    If they want to do dinosaur cuts, do it on themselves- leave kitty alone. Or better yet, find something better to do withtheir time.

    Nooooooooo!!!!!!

    no thanks keep them the way god intended

    Cats were bred to have long hair, It’s not natural for them. Shaving is great and they love it because they can get down to their skin to clean themselves. Not inhumane at all, it doesn’t hurt them and keeps them cool.

    Stupid people and animal cruelty

    This is wrong! You can tell the one cat curled up tight is cold. Can you imagine someone taking your clothes away and not being able to keep warm.

    This is wrong. Yet, so, so compelling…

    None of the cats pictured seem very happy with their lot. Stupid owners trying to find a reason to be ‘famous’. Understandable, when you see how some humans dress themselves to stand out in society. Pity the poor felines.

  18. Cat lover and non abuser March 13, 2019

    Absolutely appalling! They are cats not toys ! Obviously Americans who probably took away the poor cats’ claws as well

  19. Anonymous March 13, 2019

    These poor cats look absolutely traumatised ! So that their imbecilic owners can have a laugh at their expense ! Go and get yourselves a yo-yo or a colouring book and crayons! Something that matches your intelligence ( or lack of it.).

    For Gods sake….WHY ?????

  21. anonymous March 14, 2019

    A cat’s dignity is their finest quality. These cats would happily kill their owners in their sleep for such humiliation, and who can blame them?

  22. Janine March 14, 2019

    Aww I think it’s Sweet , People have Their Dogs in Prams now a days & I Had a little Poodle many Decades Ago ,I trimmed her Hair to be Cute Heaps of This is Just a bit of Fun for Cats too Why see the negative in this It’s not harmful its Happy & If it were around when my Chinchilla’s were in 80’s & 90’s etc; I would have had such Joy for my Cats to be groomed , it’s light humour & not cruel just Unique , Some humans have Green , Blue ,etc; freaky hair & look worse than these fur babies .. Humour is fun loving & they’re not hurting these Cats .. Chill out with the times .. Be unique

    Why?? cats do NOT look like dinosaurs even when they are clipped..they just look like silly cats…Human owners can be so foolish….more money than brains I guess…

  24. Martha B March 14, 2019

    Those of you have say this is animal cruelty obviously have never owned a persian cat or you’ve had limited exposure. It is common to have persians shaved to control matting. Some cats will not allow their owners to brush them as their skin is too sensitive. I had a Himalayan that would not let me go near her with a brush, so I had to have her shaved. If my groomer had these whimsical designs available, I would have given her a special look as well. No, this is nowhere near cruel.

    looks like something Beto would do!!!!

    Unless you have allergies why would you mess with your cats hair. One tortie cat looked pretty but how do you pet your cat when it’s hair is all layered?

  27. Regis March 14, 2019

    so so sad….

  28. Anonymous March 14, 2019

    This is very sad and is only appealing to the humans. The cat should be considered here not the human who owns him/her. I don’t think the cats like having their skin exposed in this way. Nature intended for them to be covered with hair. It protects them. Please stop this ridiculous trend.🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    This is just another stupid trend that will hopefully not become popular – and there’s nothing ‘new’ about it, I remember seeing some of these photos back in the 90’s

    It is simply WRONG to humiliate your animals like this. Cats are especially proud. Look at how humiliated they look. Additionally, the look is simply UGLY. I agree – this is cat abuse.

  37. Anonymous March 15, 2019

    Disgusting! miss treatment of cats to amuse the human being and to gain income or fame and attention.

    Horrible and unnecessary,,,,,,,,mean
    Hope they do that to you ——-you are an idiot ,,,,

    Yuck! These people should be playing with stuffed animals. Loving pets are clearly wasted on them. Sad for the cats.
