Mats need to be removed before the bath or they will become worse. Never cut them out with a sharp-pointed tool such as scissors; you could cut the kitty if he jumps.

Skin under the mat is normally very tender and sore. An infection can occur if the mat is left too long. Keeping the cat clean is the best way to avoid mats.

You shouldn’t give your cat regular baths because this will actually dry his skin out more. That is the opposite of what you’re trying to do.

The great thing about a dry powder shampoo is that you don’t have to use water like a traditional bath. That makes for a less stressed kitty, and a happy kitty parent. You just sprinkle on the dry powder, rub it all over your cat, and then rub them down with a damp cloth.
