    Not really! She was a feral kitten in my yard when I found her & still is a bit "wild" She'll come & lay by me to be pet but I have a difficult time trying to brush her.
    I took her to my room & closed the door Tried to gently pick one of the matts out & she didn't like it at all! Hissing & very upset! I don't want to stress her like that. I'm not sure what to do.

    I'm very upset about Peggy Sue. Her chin is still swollen & there a bright red spot under her tongue. It's not getting any better. She's still very thin & every time I look at her I can't help but cry.

    She's still eating & today she was chasing a chipmunk! I don't think there is anything to be done if this is cancer. It has me feeling helpless & so upset!

    That's so tough, it might be stressful, but do you think that there could be a strategic purrito method you could use to have access? I think I'm stretching :confused:. Even if the groomer didn't charge a large amount, it doesn't really seem like Alice would tolerate a groomer anyway... Have you heard of Zylkene? it's a natural supplement for calming cats that my vet prescribed to Mowgli before he flew out to live with me. Maybe if you gave Alice a supplement that would calm her, she wouldn't mind as much if you picked her mats apart little by little? it takes a few days to start working but if you're interested let me know and I will see if I have enough left to send to you. I'll brainstorm a little more ... Not that I could come up with anything you haven't already thought of.

    Oh Joy, I'm so sorry you and Peggy-Sue are going through this, I REALLY hope it isn't cancer. I can't blame you for feeling upset, sometimes the saying "when it rains, it pours" is so true... you have a lot going on, it seems unfair :(.

    On the upside, I think it's such a positive that Peggy Sue is playful and eating, even if she is still thin, playfulness is not typical in a terminally ill cat.

    It's really scary, but I think you're going to have to find out if it is cancer or not... For your own sanity, and for Peggy-Sue's benefit. If it isn't cancer there may still be hope :bighug:

    Thinking of you, Ravan, Peggy-Sue, and Alice... hang in there :):bighug::bighug:

    Joy, I'm so sorry about Peggy Sue's mouth, poor little thing. :( And I really feel for you too, it's so hard when a loved one is not well. Like Amanda said, it doesn't seem like she's terminally ill, otherwise I don't think she'd be interested in chasing chipmunks. I hope for both your sakes it's not.

    About Alice, have you tried a bit of oil on her mats?

    I believe her good mood & eating is from the CBD oil I give her every day.

    I appreciate your offer about the calming meds for Alice,but she is one cat that is really impossible to give meds to. She will not swallow anything I put in her mouth!

    I've been trying to give her 1/4 piece of a Zyrtec tablet. She'll sit & I get the pill in her mouth & dribble a bit of water in but she will not swallow it. I hold her mouth shut & rub her throat I look in her mouth & don't see the pill ,when I let her go she spits it out! I've NEVER had a cat like her that will not swallow any meds.

    I totally give up trying to give her anything in her mouth. Much too stressful for both of us.

    Thanks for trying to help but so far nothing works!

    No, I was concerned it would be too messy. I'm thinking of getting some cordless ,quiet clippers like for a child. Maybe I could get her used to them & clip the matts out myself?

    Honestly, as long as you can tell the skin isn’t tied in to the mats I think you could definitely do that :)
