never put sunscreen on your cat it can make him sick they clean themselves and can ingest it plus it is absorbed thru the skin could be harmful most things made for humans are not usually good for the pets

I shave my cat every 6 months because she cant groom herself, if your cat is not use to it better think twice, cats have a very low tolerance and could become stressed in no time, I am a groomer and do cats but they must be well behaved or I dont risk it, it's not worth it for the cat.

go to a groomer it is a cool look, but if it is outdoors you may need to spray a little sunscreen on your kitty before he/she goes out in the son with such a short hair cut.

I haved help lion shave many cats over the years, but we did it at work (vet's office) and we sedated them lightly. Most cats enjoy having less hair!! Especially if hairballs are an issue for her. I would say that those temps are not very high, we get over 100* here so it's a common thing we do around here. Whatever you decide, do your research with the groomers, or vet that will be doing the shaving. Find out how they go about the process, you'll feel much better about it.

Yea, there's a reason they have fur, doesn't sound like a good idea

It doesn't sound like a good idea. I think that it may traumatize your cat.

If your cat isnt matted or use to grooming I say dont do it I am a groomer and a cat gets very stressed out quickly. They do not understand the process. If you dont have a experienced groomer they can nick your cat and when a cat gets nicked they split wide open. Because a cat is very thin skinned. So I say is it really worth putting kitty through that?
