I had no idea that people shave their cats in the summer.

It just doesn’t seem natural.

And according to Pet Helpful it’s not necessary, because their fur actually helps regulate their body temperature and keep them cool.

But people do it, whether the hair gets matted up or not.

And now, apparently, it’s a trend to leave a little bit behind, cutting it into a classic mohawk, or getting fancy to make your cat look like a dinosaur or dragon.

There’s even a hashtag on Instagram, and boy do some of these kitties not look amused.

1. Okay, Cornelius doesn’t seem to mind

But since his owner says he likes to swim, he may not really be a cat.

2. Steve seems grumpy

I’m not sure he’s loving this look.

3. Freddie is such a pretty boy

And so photogenic, too.

4. Bibi the Magnificent

Won’t even show his face.

5. Dracula wishes he were a vampire

So he could punish you for what you did.

6. Cabo is such a cutie!

I’m not sure about this hair-do though.

7. Meet Monroe, not the President

He looks like he’s thinking deep, presedential thoughts though.

8. Vito the Persian is plotting a plan

I know Persians kind of always look like that, but…
Vito looks like he’s planning your demise.

He looks like he just isn’t quite sure of anything anymore.

14. Hazard of the job

I guess that’s one way to keep your skills sharp.

15. Charlie the Mainecoon

When he’s done, they’ll never find your body.

16. Twink spent the afternoon with dad

My husband would be in so much trouble!

17. Willows the Persian

Bewildered by his haircut since 2018.

18. This little guy is either bored or angry

Maybe both.

I’m just going to say it, I’m mostly not a fan.

If cats were meant to not have hair in the summer, they would shed their entire coats off.

I wonder if they get cold in the A/C.
