De-mat your cat!

  • Nov 11, 2006

My husband and I buy Dritz Deluxe Seam Rippers a dozen at a time. I actually do use them for ripping out seams, but their main purpose in our household, is to remove hair clumps from our long-haired Maine Coon cats.

We've tried other brands, including the longer 'red' seam ripper and were amazed at the difference between the products. The 'red' model was too dull right out of the wrapper to cut cat hair!

The normal clump-removal tools that can be found in pet catalogues are too big and clumsy to use on a cat, especially for the matted hair that accumulates between the upper leg and the body (armpit? Do cats have armpits?). This seam ripper works perfectly to separate the mat from the skin.

There are two things you need to be careful of when using this product to de-mat your cat:

(1) Don't poke kitty with the sharp end of the tool. You have one seam ripper, but your cat has eighteen!

(2) Don't pull on the hair clump while you are cutting it away from the skin. If you tug at the mat, you might accidentally pull kitty's hide up into the razor-sharp crescent blade, and cut it.

We originally learned about this novel use for a seam ripper from a man who shows Maine Coons, and have been using it successfully for many years.
