I adopted a tortoishell long haired domestic cat yesterday and she’s too affectionate to let me brush her neck properly because she’ll always but her head onto my hand and the brush. I tried today to hold her head but she backed off and I didn’t want to push her. She’s been shaved to the left of the underside of her neck from a previous matter piece of hair (so I see someone else had a problem with it too) and have a clump on the other side. Would I be okay if I just cut the clump out? Or does that cause the hair to grow back awkwardly? She’s not a show cat so she doesn’t have to look her best because we thing she’s beautiful but I’m hoping someone else has had experience and can advise me on what to do. She lets me brush her back and sides, haven’t tried her belly even though shes shown it to me and let me pet her briefly. Haven’t tried her tail either.
