My himalayan cat gets matted so badly, and instead of letting us try to brush them out, he pulls them out when we’re gone or asleep, so we find a large clump of matted fur on the floor and a large bald spot on his neck. He doesn’t seem in pain or anything, but I’ve been putting neosporin on the spots that are bloody, which someone told me to do. How do I get him to not pull out his clumps?
Serious answers only please, not dumb girls trying to be bitches.

Pick them up and throw them away. You can try combing, to keep those mats from building up, but with a longhair you’re always fighting an uphill battle.
