Some breeds thrive in cool, cold or VERY cold weather, but they wilt in hot temperatures. I’m looking at you Maine Coons & Siberians, you laid-back fur beasties.
Instead of shaving ALL the fur off — which to be honest makes me feel sad — I like to shave off the belly, upper chest and groin fur. This creates “air conditioning for the body”. From above, you can’t even tell the cats been shaved.
A lot of cats get wiggly or upset when shaved, so doing JUST a belly shave keeps drama to a minimum.
With an air-conditioned belly, you can put a leash on your MC or Siberian and head to the nearest park.
