How do i help my cat get rid of matted hair?

I have 2 cats at my job to control the mice problem we face. We got them from a shelter and are skiddish around people. they are getting better around us but dont really let you hold them and they barely let us brush them. Is there anthing we can use like a spray or wipes or even some kind of medicine that can help? We just changed their food to help with their coat but so far it hasn't helped. Its tough because they are so skiddish its tough to get close for too long.

You will have to brush them.Catch them and cover their eyes with a cloth and then hold them and brush.Talk to them as you are doing it.Good luck.
