Lavinia is a medium-hair-length cat of Siamese/Himalayan heritage, and she has quite a tendency to get mats. They haven't been too bad for the most part, until lately. She started getting more than I could keep up with, so I made an appointment for her with a groomer.

In the two weeks leading up to the grooming appointment, the fur down her back got matted up really badly, into a stiff spiky ridge down her spine.

Yesterday I dropped her off for her afternoon at the spa. She came home mat-free with a fine poodle cut!
