Tiny, my maine coon, gets mats underneath so easily. Our groomer where we lived before said he has a double coat which is cottony. We've lived in TN a year and finally needed to have him shaved but won't let us near him with a shaver. Our vet said the technicians could do it instead of the groomer since we weren't looking for a bath, etc. Tiny was so good for the technicians. In less than 5 minutes he was shaved and so much happier. They weren't sure what to charge for shaving since they don't do it too often. They charged me $5. I was so happy and so was Tiny! I couldn't believe it was that cheap. I'll definitely go back again next time he needs it.
