Lion cuts are so last year. This summer, shave your cat into a dinosaur or luxury item.

Igogo groomers in Southern Taiwan gives pets buzzworthy buzzcuts, as Reuters reports this week. Owner Ou Shih-jou told the news outlet that the unique pattern ideas come from examining the cat’s fur and seeing what it can do. One head-turning pattern the groomer uses is to trim raised triangular shapes down a cat’s spine.

“When a cat gets angry, the fur on its back erects, that made us come up with ‘stegosaurus design,'” Ou told Reuters. “It (makes the cat) look like a small dinosaur.”

Poring over Igogo’s Facebook page for more inspiration, we discovered other shaved shapes, such as the outline of a Lexus logo. This must be for your platinum-level pet.

To our delight, a classic shaved-cat cut surfaced: The Boots With The Fur. Please observe it in all its glory.

Oh yeah, they groom dogs, too. And the best patterns on those guys (in our humble opinion) are cat-inspired.

  • I just want my cats to know that I love them and would never subject them to having them looking this bad, humiliating them like this, or shaving their fur so that their skin gets dry, flaky and itchy.

    • Because the cats understand the hair cuts and are there for “humiliated”.
      Cats and dogs don’t have egos like people do. That’s what makes them great.

  • This is ridiculous. They have fur on their bodies for a purpose. If you cut off the fur it will leave the cats exposed to all kinds of skin disorders. Just for satisfying the whims of the owners the cats will suffer. Not to mention they look downright ugly and unnatural.
    Have you thought about how the cats will feel when they groom themselves when the fur is shaved off so shoddily? What kind of groomers are you? Do you even know about animals that you call yourself groomers? Stop writing, and spreading such superficial nonsense. Please think from the animal’s health point of view before you write. And ideally you should not be in this business because you do not know anything about animals. Period. Someone please take down this article.

    • As someone who has had Persians her whole life, I can personally tell you from my experience shaving your cat can have quit a few benefits for the owner and the cat.
      For starters, not everyone has time to groom their cat everyday and bathing once a month (Persians requirements) so shaving cuts down on this.
      Also, this can help keep them cool in the summer.
      It’s also a lot easier for the cat to groom themselves.
      It seems to me people see this and jump to “that’s insulting to the cats!! So humiliating!! Abusive!!” Because they don’t like the way someone else cuts their cat’s hair, so let me stop you right there.
      Cats do not have egos like humans. Neither do dogs. They do not care about shallow things such as how things look on them. They do not care how they look. Only you do.
      If a pet parent has to shave their pet for whatever reason, and they decide to do a certain hair style, that’s their buisness.
      As long as their pets are happy and healthy and they’re doing what’s best for their pets.
      I have seen cats who have been shot, kicked and left with broken legs, covered in maggots and starving to death, fighting over food, all while under costudy of a human. It’s all too easy for people to sit their and cry out “abuse!! Abuse!!” When they don’t know what real abuse looks like.

  • Absolutely horrified… This is abuse… Stop doing this you stupid people

    • How is this abuse? I don’t shave my cat too look extreme like that, but I do shave his long fur off during the summer to save him from the heat.

  • This is horrible. Totally not amusing. How can you do that to cats? I had to have my semi-longhaired cat Butterscotch shaved once because she absolutely never groomed herself and her fur was hopelessly matted (the vet had to dip her five times in a bath to get her clean; she said the water was black), but Butterscotch was miserable until her fur grew back. I would never shave a cat (or a dog) unless I absolutely had to.

  • I SO agree with all the comments here! This is outrageous and undignified. So un cat-like. Equally as obnoxious as clothing for cats!

  • This is not cute or funny. It’s abuse.

  • Hi there, Veterinary Assistant here…

    I promise you these cats are not traumatized by their lack of fur. They still have fur. It is just shaved down to their undercoat. There are some situations where cats need this done : Overweight cats cannot reach their rear end to groom and will develop mats and “oily tail” or “Stud tail” but otherwise if a pet owner wants to have their cat groomed in a unique way such as pictured above it is in no way abuse : except for on the part of the person who was brave enough to get some trimmers that close to a cat. They’re the ones who got abused. That, I can guarantee.

  • This is just stupid. Leave the cats alone. Try your stupid ideas on yourself.

  • Wow!! People are unreal! If you don’t want to have your cats fur shaved….don’t! It’s that simple! But certainly there is no need to carry on about abuse, trauma, etc.!! Someone made the comment that by shaving them, you are causing the animal to have dry, flakey, and itching skin. My short hair domestic cat has never been shaved and he has horribly flakey skin. No matter what I’ve tried, he still has it. Maybe shaving him would allow me to rub his skin with a nice oil to help the problem. I have a long hair Maine Coon that I would LOVE to have shaved! I feel so sorry for her in the summer, even though she’s an inside cat. I just can’t find a cat groomer in my area. I am financially and emotionally responsible for my sweet cats. Therefore, I make the decisions on their fur. Abuse? I hardly think so!! My fur babies are spoiled and treated like royalty! ????????
