How old is Cey? Maybe Cey is more silky than Isabella . . .but if I brushed her only once a week, she'd be an outright mess LOL
Cey turns 2 this month. I've had my ups and downs keeping him brushed but the worst was almost a year ago at Christmas, when I put a cute Christmas sweater on him and kept it on him for a couple of days - he was matted from head to tail. Looking back, he probably was 'blowing coat' then, but except for the Christmas sweater experience it never was so bad that I actually noticed it. Now, he is very easy to take care of - but he still sheds quite a bit, as he always has, so I have that to deal with instead
OH my GOSH, you are blessed... lol I am at the point where I CAN and sometimes do skip a day here or there, but for the most part fully comb Tillie out every.day. Otherwise she looks like something the cats drug in!!
oh and I too use her conditoner, diluted a lot as her grooming spray...
Cey gets those infernal tiny matts around his privates & belly, and sometimes his armpits no matter how often I comb him out. Other than that, his feet and behind his ears and sometimes his chest get a tiny bit tangled by the time I get around to grooming him, but it's nothing major. Or at least, he tolerates it good-naturedly and I am so relieved not to have the Christmas sweater experience ever again that I don't mind
I know that I probably should groom twice a week anyway... he gets baths at least that often, as his long hair tends to pick up smellies from outside and I can't stand that, but I never comb on the same day I bathe, since he tolerates, but doesn't especially love, either of those activities
