Yes, this is a mat. My mat, that was wedged in between my front legs, right on my chest. The PM had been "working" at it for months now. Her Grandmother got rid of mats that way, just keep loosening it and it'll come off. An old British trick I guess.

It was only about half off when I gave it a goin' over and pulled it right off. That's a mancat for ya! The PM went to "work" at it and couldn't believe it was gone. She found it on the wee lad's bed.

Now I am completely mat-free!! Yipee!!!!!

Wow...that's interesting. I don't get mats 'cause my fur is too short.

Wow, that's a huge mat! Your PM cares a lot about you removing all those!

Whew - that is one big mat! Mommy works to keep ours to a minimum, but if we do get one she has a comb called a "mat breaker" and it seems to work pretty well. I bet you feel better now that it's gone!

Momma furminated me this weekend and I thought the same thing had happened to you. Wow I can see that mat would have bothered you. That was a furry good thing you did to get rid of it.

Mats do not seem very nice. You are brave to pull it off all by yourself.

My friend Nikodemus gets mats sometimes. I amglad I have short hair and don't get those. I don't think I would be as brave as you and get rid of my own.

Personally I get cleaned not with brushes or any kind of dematting stuff, but because my owner shoves me in a "diggery" ~ an old lollypop jar with airholes, filled to the brim with woodshavings... this I am FORCED to dig up and down by being endlessly turned upside down so yet more shavings come pitterpattering down on my head... and when does he choose to do this?... ALWAYS when something decent's on telly like Holby City... no consideration!

My fur comes out lovely though...

Oh my goodness! That looks like it would be uncomfortable. We are glad we don't have fur and don't have to worry about mats!
