Find out how to deal with cat hair problems like matted fur

Aging can be tough on everybody. I have no personal experience with it (if I have I can’t remember) but my 17 year old cat Raoul does. Recently his hair has started to shed more and mat. A geriatric lab screen showed me that his kidneys were wearing out. In addition to hair mats (more like dread locks), he was vomiting and drinking and urinating more. A special diet and oral medication has made life much better for both of us. Your older cat needs special care too. Invest in a complete workup so that you two can share a few more good years.

A homeless cat has had to undergo an extreme haircut after its long fur became so matted and stiff it had to be completely shaved off.
