Tell me about it! Back before I moved house in 2019, we had six cats. The eldest two were a pair of sisters - one black, the other tuxedo: Flump was the tuxedo one, Pepper was the black one. Flump always had this thick, curly fur on her tummy where she'd lay down and get a little too warm, curling her fur over. It was very sweet! Unfortunately, lots of debris tends to get stuck in long fur, making it difficult to groom them like you already mentioned! Wouldn't have traded them in for the world, though, even if they were kind of anti-social lol.
