    Cats need ALL their fur, in winter to keep warm, in summer to cool. Find something better to waste your time on. Not one cat in pics here look happy. Cats are not dogs who expect this kind of thing. They are very proud animals.

    I do not see happiness on faces of these cats. I think they would rather look like CATagain.

    That is absolutely disgusting. Why would anyone do that to an animal they are supposed to love. To me that looks like torture and abuse period. poor kitties :( :( :(

    That’s a lot of work to fix these poor cats fur

    You people need to calm down. I’ll tell you right now, if the cats in these pictures didn’t like getting said haircuts, they most certainly wouldn’t get them.

    I shave my cats because of fleas.

    Is cutting a child’s hair cruelty too? Just let it grow? Geesh, you snowflakes are ridiculous.

    Chinese take out food never looked so good.

    Love the different cuts. So cute & Beautifully done.
    But probably had to be sedated as most pets are.

    I don’t think the cats like it! Why would you do that? Cats are not for you to make a fashion statement with. SMH

    They all look sad or mad. How awful to treat your kitty like that for your entertainment!! So sad!!

  13. Wayne June 17, 2019

    Stupid. It’s serves no other purpose other than entertainment for humans. The cat can’t tell you he feels cold, can’t tell you it feels uncomfortable. Have your brain checked if you thinks it’s ok. You probably believe the earth is flat too

    Stop the insanity, God gave them beautiful hair for a reason !
    Besides it doesn’t look good And the cats are not amused by this insult to their Natural Beauty !

    Finally the cat gets a makeover! I love it! Btw cats never look happy.

  18. Dee June 17, 2019

    mean and cruel and the one who does it because of fleas, get the damn flea treatment from the vet. and a cat does have expressions, they do not always look unhappy, there are some really sad looking cats in this, and to the one who says the cat would not let you do it if they minded, The cats are drugged for stuff like that, ask a vet.and to all who disagree with this treatment of cats,thank god there are real animal lovers out there, I am so glad to see we who hate this are in the majority,

    I wouldn’t do that to my cats they have their own personality Poor babies they look horrible

    Awful how could they do something like that

    I wonder if the animal shelters would be able to empty the cat cages with these kind of cuts on their cats.

  22. Shannon June 17, 2019

    I cut my Long Hair cat in the summer. He hates getting brushed out. Burrs, thistles, dirt gets trapped in his hair from his daily travels. Plus he does enjoy the hairlessness. He gets shaved only in Summer. In Winter he endures the long hair and brushing. Though he bites and scratches when brushed. He does have his full tail and boots.

  23. debser June 17, 2019

    Ridiculous! Beautiful cats loosing their gorgeous fur for what, for the enjoyment of the pet parents! Utterly ridiculous!!!!!

  24. A. June 17, 2019

    I used to personally shave my 2 cats every summer and they tolerated it well AND THEY LOVED NOT HAVING THE FUR to deal with. Grow UP PEOPLE!!!!!

    Disgusting!! Poor kitties… how awful

  27. Cheryl June 17, 2019

    I wouldn’t give my long haired cat a trendy look but the older she gets the less she can take care of her fur so we do shave it in the summer we leave it about an inch long she loves it it makes her very playful and frisky

  28. Eniaral Nabdoog June 17, 2019

    If I was a cat and you did that to me I would drop spiders in your mouth while you were asleep…

    It’s f’ing well insane!!!

    I don’t know I want to hit HARDEST WITH A DIRTY DIAPER!!!

    The cat’s TORMENTORS or the GROOMER (for lack of a suitable expletive!!!

  29. Anonymous June 17, 2019

    I also don’t see ANY happy looking cats here, not even one. I am pretty sure this is not good for the cats either that have lived for centuries with all their fur. Definitely do NOT color their hair either, this can cause poisoning in cats. I think these people have nothing better to do with their time…

  32. Sky June 17, 2019

    This is flat out animal abuse!!! Anyone doing this to their cat (or any animal) should be arrested and the keys thrown away!!!!
    The fur is there for many health reasons. What kinda moron thinks subjecting a helpless creature to this torment & possible health issues??? Karma will come back upon these ppl … And it’ll be in aces & spades…..schmucks!

    You know how many long haired matted cats there are because they are unable to groom theit long fur? So why not allow the owners to find a fun way to keep their cats well groomed. Occasionally I have to get one of my long haired shaved for this reason. He doesn’t groom himself well and he’s not a giant fan of being brushed daily. He always is a lot happier overall, grooming is easier for him and there’s less hair to clean up all around. In the wild these cats would not survive naturally. They are bred for looks. My cat is never sedated and the groomers is able to give him a lion cut within 5 minutes. No hair balls for him either! So I don’t see the animal cruelty there. He’s a very well taken care of, love animal.

    Yikes! I don’t like these at all! They are fun to look at,but I would never do this to one of our cats. I think they would feel embarrassed.

  35. Anonymous June 18, 2019

    I know when cat fur is matted and stands up in a clump, the cat is very uncomfortable. It pulls on the hairs. I can’t see that this any different. Is the hair also gelled to stand up? I say, let cats be cats.

    My long haired calico is getting on in age and is unable to groom herself properly. She does not tolerate me brushing her as I rescued her after she was attacked by a pack of dogs that ended up breaking her pelvis and tail. She is very protective of her lower parts and has no tail as it had to be amputated after gangrene took over before she was found under a bush.

    So yes. I have her hair cut every 3 months and she is much more comfortable.

    However! I don’t agree with those hideous dragon cuts!

  37. Barbara June 18, 2019

    absurd expansion of human ego and certainly not an appreciated thing to do to the cat!

  38. Rawr June 18, 2019

    My cat is obsessed with grooming herself. I think she would literally go insane with this sort of asymmetrical cut and chunks spiked out. She is such a princess, all her fur has to be even and perfectly flat. However, I bet that these dinosaur cats love all the attention. Cats are very vain.

    I am embarrassed for these cats

    My Chyna has a lion cut as her fur is very long her mum was a blue Persian, and her father was a seal point Himalayan, and when she had been returned from the buyer she was covered in ringworm, I took her and cured her, but as her previous owner had never brushed her she wouldn’t let me, so each year she has a lion cut and she loves it, she is a kitten again, I don’t think we will ever have the dinosaur cut.

    I see that a lot of you don’t like the kitty hair cuts, but think about it, its better than hair balls that pull on kitty’s skin and make sores. Yes brushing helps with hair balls, but some cats just don’t like to be brushed. My cat doesn’t seam to mind having his hair cut to rid him of hair ball.

  42. mae lange June 18, 2019

    Unless my cat really loved haircuts, I wouldn’t put them through this process. It must take some time and I’m sure they are uncomfortable. Besides we don’t need to be pleased, and besides that it takes away from the true beauty of a cat.

    Uh, animal abuse? Get real. If you still eat meat, you enjoy animal abuse on a regular basis. Animal abuse/cruelty only seems to apply to animals we don’t want to eat.

    I think this is cruel – cats have fur for a reason the same as they have whiskers and a tail – so I don’t thing this is funny

    One would think if u can get close to a cat to use clippers for that length of time you could put your time to better use with a brush in your hand in stead. I have had many a cat over time that have not enjoyed being brushed BUT perseverance also pays off. If there is a knot that a brush can’t fix just clip that area eventually you win them over. My cats are brushed every three days.
    What you have done is purely to satisfy yourself not the poor cats
