If your kitty's fur is matted "really bad" the only option is shaving. See if there are any groomers who do cats. It will be less expensive than at the vets.
If you have electric hair clippers, you can try to remove some matts with the help of two other people to restrain the animal. Use the blending attachment, gently place the cat on a warm towel, stroke it to calm it, let it sniff the clippers and listen to them when they're on, but away from kitty. Don't try to do it all at once. You can also use a pet detangler product. Follow the directions exactly.
Once the problem is solved, the cat MUST be groomed every day. Make it a relaxing, pleasant time for your cat.
Your long hair should be brushed/combed out daily. How on earth did it get to be that bad? It will likely need to be shaved, your vet or groomer can do this.
get a wide tooth metal comb and use it.
might need to take to groomers and shave if you let it get that bad.
