Sesame : Here he is being blown dry after a shower. His mum wanted him to be shaved as he had mats on his lower body, armpits and chest area despite daily brushing.
Shaving a cat does not always mean a lion cut or a complete shave. It can also be that only problem areas are shaved, such as the armpits, belly area, inner thighs and perhaps only an inch off from the tail base to help keep it clean. Done properly, the cat will still have the "full coated look" which may be more agreeable to some owners.
