Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your predicament! With very matted areas of fur, the safest thing is for your kitty to see a groomer. These matted areas need to be shaved off with clippers. Using scissors on these areas is not recommended because it is very easy to accidentally cut your kitty's skin!
