Clipper Hair Styles

is it safe to shave cats?

  • Yes, there are no long term side effects from being shaved. 

  • Coats will grow back and often times, more evenly

  • Not all cats are good candidates for clipper styles depending on health and temperament. If your cat can't tolerate the sound or feel of clippers we can discuss alternate options. 

  • Clipper styles are not always a good option for older or overly thin cats with loose delicate skin. 

FancyPants Cat Grooming offers high quality lion clip services trained by NCGI standards.
  • Badly matted cats 

  • Difficult to maintain, unmanageable coats

  • Cats that no longer can or want to "groom" themselves

  • To control excess shedding throughout homes

  • Cats with skin issues, chronic itching, health problems, etc.

why do we shave cats?

At FancyPants Cat Grooming we address serious matted coat problems.
Matted fur and pelting on cats pose a serious health risk which can restrict blood flow and cause constant pain.
Persian cats are highly susceptible to matting and coat problems.
After clipping matted fur we fully degrease and exfoliate your cat's skin to rejuvenate and help heal skin problems.


A Teddy Bear Clip is similar to the Lion Clip except the fur is left at a length of approximately 1/2" by using a comb guard attachment during the shaving process. This option is only available to cats who are not badly matted since the coat has to be completely tangle free in order for the comb to glide through the fur. All comb clips need to be done using vacuum suction to achieve a more uniform finish. Some coat textures are not ideal for this style because they can look choppy and uneven.  

Teddy Bear Comb Clips are an easy maintenance hair style for longhair cats.
Teddy Bear Comb Clips work well on Persian, Himalayan, and Ragdoll breeds to decrease shedding around the home.
