    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.

    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.

    If your cat barfs up in your shoe and ignores you for a month you deserve it poor kitties

    I LOVE these cuts! I’m thinking of getting one for my kitty.

    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

    Jesus! Humans are the worst species ever. Stop exploiting the cats in your care.

    This is awful and ruins their coats.
    This is true animal abuse in the extreme, be bloody ashamed of yourselves if you are putting your kitties through this humiliation for the love of art or just a bloody good laugh 😡😡😡😡

    Ok seriously wtf is wrong with you people this isn’t abuse nor is it exploiting the cat. There is no benefit from sharing these pictures other than the joy of the picture no one made money other than the pet groomer. If the cat will sit through getting it’s hair cut it’s because the pet groomer is competent and careful. Also some cats get haircuts for medical reasons so shut up.

    Poor kitties! Cats are so beautiful anyway, why would you do that to them? And I assume, pay good money for it. That said, I use to have a cat that would sit on my vanity and watch me shave every morning. So one morning I shaved a reverse-mohawk on him. He sat there and let me do it like it was nothing. I guess he wanted to find out why Dad did that every morning.

    Cats are sentient beings, which means they have feelings! They are NOT fashion accessories!

  17. Joanne June 19, 2019

    I think this is animal torture!

    The look on many of the cats’ faces tells the real story. Unless cats are born Sphinxes, they would rather be in air conditioned comfort with their longer hair than have their fur shaved, cut or turned into dinosaurs & embarrassed to be without their original fur in public.

  19. MavelliG June 19, 2019

    Disrespectful and Abusive- cats don’t like haircuts- much less dye jobs and getting sculpted…owners need to do this to their own hair- Oh wait! They will -just to match their poor cats.

  20. Me June 19, 2019

    Nope… Just nope

    Cut my cats fur when it was mated.

  22. Anonymous June 20, 2019

    Selfish humans thinking that the cat is there for their amusement only. It’s a living animal ffs. People that do this, you don’t deserve pets as you clearly do not appreciate them for the beauty they naturally have. These shaven cats look horrific and awful. How can any sane person think this looks good?

  23. maz June 20, 2019

    Complete madness!!! A cat is a CAT not a freaking dinosaur!!!!!! Disrespectful and animal abuse!!

  24. @realdonaldtrump June 20, 2019

    All of you are stupid! That is not animal abuse! Animal abuse is hitting your pet, not feeding them or giving them water, not properly sheltering them, hurting them in any way, or other forms of neglect, etc. If a cat sits still long enough to have its hair cut, then it is fine with it. If it didn’t like it, it would try to escape and would not allow its hair to be cut. You are all a bunch of useless normies.

    People are sick! Grooming for their health is one thing. I can’t imagine the only way to keep furballs from recurring would be to cut their fur dinosaur-style. These precious cats should be re-homed to healthy homes where they are loved “as is,” and not treated like contestants in a freak show.

    I own a persian and himi- They both get summer haircuts. It is much cooler and they don’t shed as much. My cats personalities change after getting their summer cut. My opinion is they love it. Feel cooler and lighter and no more hairballs. They love getting their baths, oil treatments and haircuts.

  27. Anonymous June 20, 2019

    Kinda cute ..maybe some of them…but aren’t they cold?

  28. Anonymous June 20, 2019

    Disgusting practice and traumatizing. Cat’s hair not only regulates their temperature but also protects them from sunburn and some animal attacks. Let the cat owner get these haircuts but leave your feline’s fur alone! 😡

  29. Anonymous June 20, 2019

    None of these cats look very happy!

  30. Anonymous June 20, 2019

    Cutting the hair on these cats like this is just WRONG!!! It maybe creative, it may be artistic, but cats are beings that should be treated with love and respect, not like they are a toy.

    That is not with love and respect!!

    Cat’s temp is about 103. When they have fur comfortable temp is about 71. These cats have to be cold! Take your clothes off and go outside in winter see if you like it.

    These poor kitties. They don’t look happy at all. I can understand shaving a cats fur if it’s matted but doing this for the amusement of their pathetic owners is downright pathetic and cruel.

    How pathetic what the hell is wrong with the human race.

    this is abuse and not all meat eaters go with inhumane killing of animals either dude. the bible is very clear that eating meat is acceptable
    Clean and Unclean Food
    14 “You are the sons of the Lord your God. You shall not cut yourselves or make any baldness on your foreheads for the dead. 2 For you are a people holy to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.

    3 “You shall not eat any abomination. 4 These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, 5 the deer, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, the ibex,[a] the antelope, and the mountain sheep. 6 Every animal that parts the hoof and has the hoof cloven in two and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat. 7 Yet of those that chew the cud or have the hoof cloven you shall not eat these: the camel, the hare, and the rock badger, because they chew the cud but do not part the hoof, are unclean for you. 8 And the pig, because it parts the hoof but does not chew the cud, is unclean for you. Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch.

    9 “Of all that are in the waters you may eat these: whatever has fins and scales you may eat. 10 And whatever does not have fins and scales you shall not eat; it is unclean for you.

    11 “You may eat all clean birds. 12 But these are the ones that you shall not eat: the eagle,[b] the bearded vulture, the black vulture, 13 the kite, the falcon of any kind; 14 every raven of any kind; 15 the ostrich, the nighthawk, the sea gull, the hawk of any kind; 16 the little owl and the short-eared owl, the barn owl 17 and the tawny owl, the carrion vulture and the cormorant, 18 the stork, the heron of any kind; the hoopoe and the bat. 19 And all winged insects are unclean for you; they shall not be eaten. 20 All clean winged things you may eat.

    21 “You shall not eat anything that has died naturally. You may give it to the sojourner who is within your towns, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner. For you are a people holy to the Lord your God.

    “You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.
