Last, but not least, this is the most difficult, troublesome and touchy area for long-haired kitties to get clumps in their furs. It is bad enough when someone starts running a brush over your back, but most kitties don't like peoples pulling clumps from their sensitive areas. Sometimes they will call in another family member to hog-tie you so you can't move. (So I've been told.)
In case you can't tell, this is my clump-free derriere.
As you can see, there is real potential here for problems. I spend a lot of time every day smoothing out my furs so they look nice. Mom sneaks up from behind now and then and quickly runs a comb through, just in case there's a problem there. (She hasn't found one yet.)
So, I need your comments here.
Why do I not get clumps like other long-haired kitties?
Is it because I am a boy?
(The Mandu before me was a girl and she had LOTS of problems with clumps.)
Mom read somewhere that long-haired RagDoll kitties don't get clumps.
Could it be that my great-great-great-great-grandfather was a RagDoll and that's why I am clump-free?
(By the way, I am not bragging--just thankful.)
