What kind of clippers do you use to shave a cat?

do you use the same ones you use on a humans hair or is there a special kind?

dont listen to these people, i am a persian breeder and i keep all my cats shaved in the summer. get a good pair of andis or oster pet clippers $75-$150 a number ten blade is what you use for cat hair. please remember to take some hospital tape or the stretchy non adhesive tape(like the use when they draw blood on people) and wrap around each paw covering the toenails so the cat cant scratch you,hold the cat firmly by the nape of the neck and start shaving.

Try the gentle ones they use to groom dogs.



Good luck getting your cat to sit still long enough to let you shave it. :)

LMFAO SHAVE IT LIKE A LION.



i dont reccomend shaving a cat. if its maded...just cut those parts out and itll grow back.



What kind of clippers do you use to shave a cat?

I've never shaved a cat, but I have shaved a dog. I used regular human hair clippers. If you're shaving a cat, you may want to invest in some body armor.

you should have a profetional do it and then brush it everyday after that. you could hurt the cat

You really shouldn't shave your cat. If you have a medical reason, I suggest you leave it to your vet. Cats have very sensitive skin and it could seriously harm your cat. Plus, your cat isn't going to take to kindly to the process of getting all of it's fur removed, and could injure you and itself trying to get away.

the kind of blade that comes with human clipper is usually a ten blade which will cut the hair very short.



i dont advise you to shave your cat yourself take it to a groomer.



a cats skin is very strechy and thin, you could very easly slice open your cat if you are not trained to groom a cat.



call your local grooming shop, most petco's take cats.

None - you should never shave a cat - see a vet please as you can really really harm the poor cat.

You can use the same ones that are used on people but, as others have said, it may be best to seek a professionals help, at least for the first time you do it.

LMAO I have heard of shaving your p ussy but this is ridiculous!You do not shave cats!lol Aren't you afraid it will scratch the heck out of you?Good luck honey,you're definitely gonna need it!

I wouldn't recommend shaving a cat yourself. If the cat's hair is badly matted, I can understand your wanting to do it, but I strongly reccomend bringing your cat to the vets to be de-matted. The cat is always sedated for a de-mat as they are completely unmanageable otherwise.



Please leave it to the professionals.



Also, please, please don't shave your cat just for the sake of it. Not only will you be torn to pieces, but it will also be very disturbing for the cat.

Don't use any kind of clippers, unless you're a professional or have considerable experience with cats. Trying to shave your cat yourself will take a lot of time, cause you a lot of stress, create a big mess, and put your cat's health at risk. Pay the $30 it will cost to have your cat shaved at a reputable veterinarian office. It will be well worth it.

Grooming clippers designed for cats and dogs. The blades are interchangable, depending on the hair length desired. Depending on the groomer, and condition of the cat, they will use anywhere between a 7 and 10 blade. The larger the number, the shorter the hair cut. Just for comparison, a 40 blade is what vet's use to shave an area before surgery.



Unless you are a groomer, or have some training in grooming animals, I would adise you take the cat to a pro. My degree included two grooming classes, and I still wouldn't shave my own cat's. It's been too long since then and I haven't had any experience with grooming clippers since.



As someone else mentioned, cat skin is very thin and can be cut very easily. A groomer will have the proper tools and knowledge.



*edit*



If he is in that bad of shape, than he definitely needs to be shaved down. If it was one or two mats, and they weren't close to the skin, than you could have cut them out with scissors, but not when it's this bad.



He really needs to have a pro do it, though, because he's going to need sedation at this point. Otherwise, you could end up hurting him really badly because I'm sure he'll freak out because he's obviously in pain. In the future, you should never let the mat's get this bad. As you saw - he's got sores from trying to bite the mats out himself. He's probably lost mobility as well because tight mat's around the legs can keep them from using full range of motion. A fully matted animal is in pain and risks skin infection. It's rather nasty. If you don't have the money for a groomer, than perhaps you should have thought about that before and brushed him everyday to avoid this. And whatever you do right now will NOT be better than how he is now. Since the mats are so bad, you probably will cut him trying to get out the ones really close to the skin - especially in areas where the skin creases and is stretchy, like the armpits.

I also have a persian cat and shave her every summer. She hates to be brushed and gets very matted fur. She is a skittish cat. She has never been abused, since I have had her since she was born. She is happiest when he is shaved. She struts around the house like she owns the place. My dog and other cat have short hair, so I think she thinks she fits in better with short hair. I take her to the vet and let them do a "lion's cut" on her. Hope this helps.
