Cat | Body Clipping / Lion Trims

Cat Body Clipping & Lion Trims

Body clipping can range from just a couple of areas to removing the whole coat.

Body clipping can be requested by the owner as a preference or because the coat is matted and requires removal.

Body Clipping – Removing just matts to save as much coat as possible. The coat left behind will usually cover the areas removed.

Lion Trim – Removing all the panel/sanitary and body coat from the shoulders to the base of the tail

Extended Lion Trim – Removing all the panel/sanitary and coat from the top of the neck to the base of the tail

Plume Tail – Leaving the whole tail from the base to the tip

Lion Tail – Clipping 2/3 of the tail and leaving the lion pom on the tip

On all trims, the hair on the legs will be left on – usually just below the elbow.


Matting has to be cut away

from underneath

Matting is uncomfortable

for cats

Short areas clipped away can

be covered by long areas

Useful Information

  • Matted hair is uncomfortable for a cat and needs to be clipped from the cat by a professional
  • Never use scissors on a cat, their skin is extremely loose and thin and can be cut easily
  • If left mats will restrict movement of the cat and tear the hair out of the skin
  • Once matting is removed damaged skin is often uncovered where hair has been pulled out.
  • After matt removal please discuss with our groomer a future grooming plan to avoid further matting.
  • Regular grooming avoids matting and makes cats happy.
