Because long haired cats need to be groomed regularly. A minimum of once a week with a metal toothed come.

If the mats are really bad you will need to cut them out or shave them off. Keeping him brushed back there will help prevent them from forming again.

Mine does too.He is old now and stiffer.I cut them away when I groom him.Last year I had a groomer shave all around his bum area and I am going to have that done again when it grows back.
