I apologize, but I've never understood why someone would cut a cat's fur like that. I think the "lion" look is a little silly - I'd just keep it long, and make sure you brush it every day, like you're supposed to. That'd get rid of the piles of fur, etc.

Always read all directions that come with whatever clippers you purchase and shave your pets at your own risk.Cat graduated from MSTC-Wisconsin Rapids Cosmetology School.
