50 Cats With Lion Haircuts-omg Emma would have to be sedated in order to pull this off!! But I wanna do this! Argh
Some people can handle the daily hair needs of their Himmy, but others find the constant brushing, mat removal and shed hair frustrating and too time-consuming. Or maybe your Himmy has successfully avoided brushing time long enough to develop tight, nasty mats throughout his coat. In such cases, the ever-popular lion cut comes to the rescue. Many Himmy owners have their cats' bodies shaved so that only puffs of hair remain on the head, feet and tail. This gives the pet a regal, predator-of-the-Savannah appearance and enormously cuts down on necessary grooming. Although you can technically figure out how to shave your cat yourself, chances are Mr. Fluffernutter won't be very cooperative. One slip of the clippers could injure your cat and make him even less cooperative. Better to seek out the services of a professional groomer to shave him properly.
Lion Cut: The body of the cat is shaven short leaving the head, feet and tail long like a lion. There are different variations such as shaving most of the tail and legs and leaving just balls of hair on the ends of the feet and tail. (I would never recommend shaving a cat’s tail)

lion cut for cats | STRANGE CAT HAIRCUTS - THE 'LION' CUT!
~ This style is 1/2 Tiger & 1/2Lion. This style leaves a Tiger head on a Lion pattern body. There is no mane and the head is purrfectly manicured round. The body is like a standard Lion Cut,"The Main Lion", with "boots" left onthe legs & a Lion tail. Purrfect for short haired cats too. ~ This LionCut does not have any separation between the mane & the front legs. The mane is one solid unit in the front. This style is ideal for ornery cats who do not like their front legs touched. The maneis more pronounced & the look is more natural looking. The body can be a shave or a shag. Shuji our cat model is displaying a shag on his body which allows for a short length of hair on the bodymuch like a Tiger cut. Tail style optional This styleis 1/2 Lion & 1/2 Tiger. This style leaves a Lion head & mane on a Tiger body (The Tiger Cut is the same length all over). The body is groomed evenly all over including the paws & tail,while leaving a pronounced natural mane.. A great style for long haired cats with 2 distinct lengths of hair. Also a great alternative Lion Cut for the Winter months. Tail style optional (Tiger, Lionor Natural) The lion cut is among the most popular haircuts around. It involves trimming all of your cat’s fur except for what’s on her head, neck, feet, and tail. Not only will she look more lion-esque, but it can keep her cooler if you live in a hot climate as well.
