One thing to remember about Persians and other longhaired breeds is that they need to be brushed/groomed daily or every other day. The cat can only do so much on his/her own to maintain a healthy coat. So assistance from humans is usually necessary. Use a metal comb and a detangling solution to work out the knots. For knots that will not budge, you can use special grooming scissors. First slide the comb underneath the knot to prevent cutting the flesh. Then use the scissors to cut the knot off the top of the comb. If you feel the least bit uneasy about performing this task, do not hesitate to let a professional groomer handle it.
