Oh, I am so embarassed! My cat, Beverly, is obese, and she\'s gotten mats around her hindquarters. So I wanted to take her to professional groomer to get the mats cut and get a good bath since it\'s no go on letting me wash her at home.
At the groomer\'s she hissed and fought so much that they put her in her carrier and called me to pick her up. They suggested that I take her to a vet so that they could give her something to calm down first and them give her a good grooming.
We\'re both so frustrated and miserable with the problems she\'s been having grooming. I\'ve been switching her over very gradually to a Wellness diet this week, and now I\'m glad I did. The stress from a grooming and new food would just about do her in.
I\'m going to take her to the vet this week to get them to groom her, but I\'m wondering if there\'s any chance that she\'ll learn to like getting a bath given by me. Or if I\'ll have to get her a standing appt at the vet to get a good grooming until she loses enough weight.
