Not the best time of year for a Persian Cat to have a shave but a matted, ungroomed coat needs drastic action as this stray discovered.

On a serious note, I begin to understand those who oppose the pedigree dog business at Crufts. This cat needs constant grooming and if abandoned soon gets into trouble; not because it cannot scavange but simply because its unnaturally long and fine coat becomes matted, dirt encrusted and in warmer weather, fly-blown. Specialist breeding has certainly produced some fine looking breeds of cats and dogs but at what cost in animal welfare?
