Hi I'm Amelia with Caring Behavior Animal Behavior Consulting in Los Angeles, California. And today I'm going to show you how to use olive oil to get mattes out of your cat's fur. When you find a cat is a little bit knotty and needs some brushing and grooming one thing that you can do to help ease the grooming process is to add a little olive oil to any knots that might be in the cat's skin. Just take a little bit, a little, little bit you don't want to make them too greasy. And apply it to the area that is knotty. And this will help work the knot out of the cat's, out of the cat's fur. I know it's annoying. And then once you've got it worked in there you just go ahead and brush it on through. Now if it brushes right through that's definitely a knot. If it gets stuck and you can't work the brush through that means your cat has a matte. And with mattes you may need to go see your groomer to have them properly shaved out. Often times the mattes will end up so close to the skin that if you try to cut it off yourself you can really injure your animal. So you want to make sure that if you can brush it out great. But if not you can't get it out well that olive oil sitting in there will help loosen it for the groomer and they can go ahead and shave it out for you. Thanks for watching. I hope this helps.
