He thought the matted moggy was a cat with a blanket on her back.
When Sinbad the cat came to (in Chicago), the shelter staff was shocked by the amount of matted fur accumulated on the feline.
ONE day! Saved the $190 the vet wanted for blood work, sedation and shaving the matted fur. it was only in one spot but it was pretty bad. I could not believe this treatment worked but it did. thank goodness. I felt bad for my cat.
you applied to much only drops. i tried it on one of my long hair cats, and it worked like they said, so i tried it on my shy little girl. she had a good size matt on her hip, and she didn’t want it brushed, washed, trimed so this was the next step. two days later it came off but she is bare to he skin, like she was shaved. i don’t no if i’ll try that again.

How to Treat Seriously Matted Fur on a Cat - Pets
A cat that was severely neglected, was found with the most extreme case of matting. Now she can finally get a chance at a happy and comfortable life. A neglected cat with severely matted fur named Hidey was brought to the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center after the animal’s owner was taken to a nursing home in Pennsylvania. A calico cat was brought to the clinic of last week after the owner was taken to a nursing home and suffered from Alzheimers. "[Hidey the cat] suffered from severe matting, the likes of which had been neglected for years," the shelter shares with Love Meow.Even though cats meticulously groom themselves, their hair can get mats. The help of a pet parent is often required to remove tangled, bunched up hair. Because mats can lead to conditions such as skin lesions, skin infections and dirt, debris and bacteria buildup, its best to remove them as soon as you notice them. The correct tools, proper de-matting technique and hair conditioner, can help make the grooming process easier. The feline suffered severe matting of its fur after 14 years' worth of fur growth and not being groomed by its 82-year-old owner. The matting was so bad the cat developed what could only be described as dreadlocks.Saturate the matted hair with hair conditioner. Use a commercial hair conditioner made for cats. Rub the conditioner into the matted hair with the tips of your fingers. The conditioner softens the hair and creates a slippery surface, making it easier to untangle.
