Sorry! We didn’t do cat agility, although that’s something I’d like to see as well. Instead, we gave the cats their first ever hair cuts. Owning two “long haired domestics” with fur more like rabbits than other cats, I find poofs everywhere that stick to everything. Nothing is truly “CLEAN.” I think Aaron had finally had enough and decided that, if I wouldn’t let him shave them, we could at least give them a trim.
They both had developed some very serious beards that enveloped their head and made it difficult for them to groom themselves. I was always finding them with a chunk of hair curled up and in their mouths. While I found it adorable, it was getting to be a bit much… As a result, that was what was trimmed. I hope you can tell from the pictures!
Frou Frou’s Transformation:
There were at least four handfuls of hair that we threw away – probably more – just from the trim and then brushing them down. I ALMOST wish we hadn’t stopped with just their manes/beards. almost. Frou has some serious underarm hair that could be trimmed back, and Tubby – well, Tubby’s just FLUFFY.
Having just used regular scissors we have lying around the house, I don’t think I did too poorly a job! It’s a little choppy, but still blends into the rest of their fluff nicely.
What do you think? How did I do? Can you even tell??
